This thesis proposes a framework to articulate certain criteria in creative spatial productions such as architecture. I discuss that a conformist and unquestioning adaptation to conventional space conceptions limits enhancement of spatial sensibility, and consequently creativity. I connect such adaptations to linear progress of continuous and one directional accumulation. Specifically, I call attention to a non-linear progress that surpasses the limitations of these mental constructs and brings in creativity. My discussions are formed around how this non-linear progress might be conceived and sustained in dynamic systems of fragments. The thesis connects this inquiry to the historical and contemporary critique of positivism in the classical sciences, mainly due to the relation of origins of space conceptions to sciences.
