THE SCIENCE OF CREATIVITY
 

"It stands to the everlasting credit of science
that by acting on the human mind it has overcome man's
insecurity before himself and before nature."

Albert Einstein

There is extensive evidence in science today concerning the relationship of quantum physics to the human brain and consciousness. In this site we explore the latest discoveries in these areas. Our purpose is to open the mind by exercising the brain and expanding its capacity to process information and knowledge. The following articles explore current paradigms in brain science as they relate to quantum physics and beyond.

The Science of Creativity
 

It is now estimated that one in every three individuals will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. Add this to the other life threatening diseases that exist and perhaps everyone will at some time deal with some form of serious illness. There are creative ways to approach illness and subsequent recovery, as well as to maintain optimum health. Learn what these are.
 
Science has speculated that we use only 10% or less of our brain capacity. What is this figure based on? We have examined the evidence and have presented our conclusions on whether we are living up to our full potential and using all of the brain power that we possess. Or, perhaps there is a vast amount of unused territory waiting to be mapped.
Memory is essential to creative thought. There are numerous techniques available to enhance memory function. Where is memory housed in the brain, if it is housed anywhere biologically? Find out what you can do to improve your ability to remember whatever you want, whenever you want.
 
Can a machine rival human creativity? There is a feeling in the fields of artificial intelligence (AI) that one can. Explore the possibilities now on the horizon in the AI field, and decide for yourself if the human creative spirit can be captured by a computer program and housed in a metal box.
 
CREATIVE EMOTION
In her book Molecules of Emotion Dr. Candace Pert has discovered the biochemical basis for the emotional response in the body, the peptides and their receptors. Emotions can enhance or retard the creative process. Learn how they are created and distributed throughout the body, how they effect the mind, and how you can learn to release emotional residues that inhibit your creative potential.
BRAIN FOOD
Creative thought depends upon a well nourished brain. The brain is the master controller of the body as well as the mind. It is estimated that there are over 100 billion neurons available to facilitate thought. Learn what nutrients and substances can improve your brain's ability to process thought, thereby enhancing your creativity.
 
THE BIOLOGY OF A CREATIVE MIND
Science has discovered the physical basis for the "web of consciousness". It is in the microtubules, the substructure or cytoskeleton of neurons. Learn who is promoting this theory and why, and how this knowledge is connected to creative thinking.
 
ELIXIR OF LIFE
Without sufficient water in the body and brain, the electrical activity of creative thought is greatly impaired if not impossible. The brain is approximately 83 percent water. A dehydrated brain cannot think or process information correctly. Learn how water affects the electrical activity of the brain, and what kinds of water will enhance creative thinking.
Mathematics is the cornerstone of science. Mathaphobia is a fear that many people have which cripples their ability to understand science and nature. Read about an excellent book that will dispel your fears of math forever, and thus expand your creative abilities as well.
 
Resonant frequencies play an important factor in the function of the brain. Music as a wave frequency can influence creative potential profoundly. Find out which kinds of music are most potent for enhanced brain function and why these are so powerful in the creative process.
 
This article gives a description of the how the brain processes thought at the neuronic levels. What is occurring at the synaptic cleft and how does this produce what we know of as mind? What are the limitations of perception to incoming knowledge and how is this integrated with what we already know? Does the mind operate in a holographic fashion, and if so, how does this effect our ability to perceive reality?
BRAIN PLASTICITY
A recent article in the April 3, 1997 issue of Nature magazine again validated the idea that intellectual stimulation of the brain can indeed effect the biological growth of the neurons. As new knowledge is gained new dendrite connections are formed. As ever new dendrite connections are formed there is greater capacity to process additional knowledge. We are never too old to learn, nor does our brain ever stop expanding if we continue to stimulate it.
 
BUILD A BETTER BRAIN
In a 1994 July article of Life Magazine it was discovered that the brain continues to grow into old age if it is used regularly. Evidence is accumulating that the brain works a lot like a muscle -- the harder you use it, the more it grows. Although scientists had long believed the brain’s circuitry was hard-wired by adolescence and inflexible in adulthood, its newly discovered ability to change and adapt is apparently with us well into old age. Best of all, this research has opened up an exciting world of possibilities for treating strokes and head injuries -- and warding off Alzheimer's disease.
 
CHAOS THEORY SUPPORTS CREATIVE THOUGHT
The newly understood theory of chaos gives greater insight into what creative thought is and how it can be enhanced. This article explores the ideas behind chaotic environments and experience, how chaos is created and how it is resolved. Once the simple principles that generate and resolve chaos are understood, they can be applied to creative thought.
