The invention claimed is:
 1, A creation production support method comprising the steps of:
  storing, in a database on a storage medium, elements of a creation
  along with added corresponding element indexes,extracting from said
  database, element indexes for multiple creation elements that match
  selecion sets written in said extracted element indexes, and obtaining
  a set of element indexes from said extracted element indexes whose
  correlation satisfies an evaluation reference:and linking creation elements
  corresponding to element indexes that belong in said set, and outputing the
  results as a new creation onto a terminal devices,wherein information
 written in said extracted element indexes consists of n set o information
 to present said information using n-dimentional vectors; and wherein said
 correlation among said extracted element indexes is evaluated by using
 an angle formed by said n-dimentional vectors of said extracted elementt
 indexes/
