Eureka! Creativity Changes Your Brain

Eureka! The guy named Archimedes ran nude out of his bath tub to the town once he found out the idea the amount of water displaced from the tub was equal to the volume of the object immersed. That is an example of an intuitive creativity. Creativity had already been a vital force in science to imagine unthinkable things that revolutionized the perception of universe. One such is the theory of relativity of Einstein which described how the gravity could bend the space-time fabric of cosmos. A man with respect to neuroscience should understand the difference between the intelligence and creativity. Intelligence is correlated with genetic potential as it was found in more correlation with identical twins. This is obviously a skeptical explanation even for me. However, Intelligence is understood in neuroscience as a deductive reasoning which found its answer when worked on ideas and laws of a subject or once the subject has been exposed to whereas creativity used abductive reasoning in which it had to find answers without knowing the ideas and laws of a subject or without having exposure to the subject. Creativity not only subsides to kindergarten and high school compounds in forms of arts and it’s expressions, it is an integral part of study in understanding the extension of subjective experiences of consciousness in neuroscience.

Where Else But the Martha Link Walsh Gallery?

Artist Martha Link Walsh has dared to make her life one of doing what she loves and of serving her community.

When she serendipitously discovered the art of papercutting, she devoted her days to learning about its history and traditions of paper cutting and taught herself how to draw and cut. Over more than 40 years, she has developed her own signature style which, combined with her imagination, reveals one-of-a-kind originals that touch the heart.

You can visit with Martha, and see her creations, at her well-known gallery on the Connecticut shoreline.

Situated in a rustic, turn-of-the-century building, the Martha Link Walsh Gallery is full of surprises. Here you will find original papercuttings and artwork, guest artists, creative gifts, and much more!

BOOK REVIEW by Poet Luanne Castle

“To help heal our planet and ourselves, we first have to look outward to go inward. Jen Payne’s new book of poetry and photographs inspires us to do just that. Using the unique and cohesive symbol of the pocket dental flosser, Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind explores nature and our place within our environment…Payne’s poetry is the nuanced, living force of the collection. What drives that force is a love of nature’s beauties, a love that Payne wants readers to experience.” – Luanne Castle
