Which Train of thought would you ride to come up with outside the cardbox routines?

Or should the train derail and scatter to allow for random and really out there card magic?

OR
Is it possible to come up with something new?

I believe it is possible to develop new ideas and out of the "box" thinking. Time and time again I see new ideas to our art. I believe that many of these future ideas will come from newcomers that are not steeped in "traditional" magical thinking.

Well to be perfectly honest I have only half the traditional training most magicians have my age.... I have taken the initiative to forget tradition and steer clear of routines and patter of other magicians... if I read a book it is a very basic book.. as in Tarbells and 125 tricks with a regular deck. Oh and I read part of Darwins' "Strong Magic" and Lou Gallo's "Underground Man" other than that I try and visualize what magic would look like, and how to achieve it.
