BBC - Radio 4 - "Creative Genius"

A great BBC radio program of understanding creativity. A wide variety of impressive scientists and artists weigh in on the subject. I have only listened to program three, but the whole series seems very really interesting. The science of analyzing creativity is still relies on vague definitions and infantile neuroscience. Enjoy. Its fascinating stuff...

I always thought that there must be some correlation between personal restraint (due to something like self critisism) in contrast to one's ability to "do" without thought and creativity.

I think Asher is saying there is an equal opposite force to creativity. Something which could yeild a negetive result on the same theorhetical scale measuring creativity. The degree to which we are "anti-creative?" An idea like that definitly caters to people who say "everyone is creative." They might just regester high levels of what ever brain juice restrains them. I bet that does play a major role in things. I still just cling to the theory that is controled "resource digestion" which alters/enhancing creativity. The amount which a person can take in, stir, and spit out general input. Maybe personal restraint comes from infected input?

What do you think of "infected input?"

It would be really hard to identify, but I think it exists... What kind of stuff do you think carries anti-creativity messages?

I don't really think the input can be infected, but I do think that the processing can be wonky.
