Creative minds have less filtering...

Here's an interesting BBC article which dovetails with the discussions we've had here about creative thought and its relation to divergent mental processes (as well as mental illness). Here are the TTYU posts:

Insanity and Creativity
More on Hypergraphia and Writer's Block
Famous Writers with Epilepsy
Different Minds, Different Voices


  1. Thanks for the comment, Brad. From the standpoint of genetics and evolution, it does make sense.

  2. Wow, that article is pretty cool. Perfectly explains the whole tempermental artist thing. And my mood swings in relation to my work. ;D Fascinating. *raises an eyebrow*
