Unipolar major depression, the fucking terrible condition characterized by extended episodes of low mood, apathetic responses to your environment, diminished energy, inability to ascertain feelings, poor sleep patterns, feelings of worthlessness, suicidal ideation, loss of the capacity to experience pleasure, etc...Does depression become an all encompassing burden to bear, or is it the doorway to creative insight and life fulfilling meaning?

It depends, if you let consume you then it will destroy you. But I really do believe it can be an opportunity.

It can be seen as a trap that you could stay in forever. But the cool thing is that it's possible to get out, and once out, be much stronger.

Everytime when the moodswinging tends to leave me behind with some bad, depressing moods, I decide to take off on my bicycle (for 2 hours or more) and drive to quiet places where I can sit and think quietly. This manner of ventilating my moods in more positive ways can be very rewarding and inspiring. :)

Do you feel a certain inspiration or spark of creativity from a mood swing to the downside?

Sparsk of creativity, because it allows me to see the world in very different ways in just one day without losing touch with logical reasoning. The interplay between melancholia and a walk in the nature can be very charming and peaceful as well.
