The Real Problem with Creativity


Seth Godin: Quieting the Lizard Brain from 99% on Vimeo.

I found this video on 43 folders.  There is also an interview on 43 folders that is very good.

My lizard brain is on overdrive.

I have not used my creativity for anything good lately. Instead I have come up with very creative excuses for not doing anything productive at all.

Neurology & Art



I recently found this lecture given by Ramachandran. He explains what it is about art that captures our attention. This lecture brings up a lot of great insight for artists and art appreciators.

I find it extremely fascinating when art meets science. I am fascinated by neurology in particular. There is an amazing thing inside our skulls that does so much more than operate our bodies.

Here are some interesting links on the subject:
