Scientists Use AI to Decode How Artists Have Bursts of Creativity – The Swaddle

There’s one truth any artist knows all too well. There’s no formula to creativity. It trickles into the consciousness in mysterious ways; the odd conversation, a stray passage, abstract thoughts snowball into brilliance. What brings about this brilliance, what people also call “hot streaks,” for artists?

That was the subject of a recent study published in Nature Communications. The researchers built on the preexisting idea that anyone remotely creative finds themselves on a roll at some point. The streak is marked randomly, determined by personal traits and fields. “Although hot streaks have been widely debated in sports, gambling, and financial markets over the past several decades, little is known about whether they apply to individual careers,” a previous exploration noted.

Focus on… Utopias and Dystopias

Image by Versus Grau from Flickr with thanks

In perhaps the most highbrow mother-in-law joke ever, it is said that John Milton started work on ‘Paradise Lost’ (1667) when his wife’s mother moved in with him, and on ‘Paradise Regained’ (1671) shortly after she moved out.(1) The first poem, as is obvious from the title deals with the loss of Paradise, due to Original Sin. Eden, the very first Utopia was destroyed by our own very human failings.

What’s in a word?

Writers and other creatives have had a fascination with both ideally good and ideally bad places for as long as human creativity has existed.

El Viejo más Rico del Mundo

El tiempo es la clave: cuando te mueres o enfermas no te llevas el dinero contigo: el dinero sólo lo tienes durante un periodo limitado de tiempo.

El tiempo es el recurso escaso. Los que más tiempo tienen siempre son los jóvenes. Un jóven tiene más riqueza que el viejo más rico del mundo, y esto no es poesía, es realidad.

En esta cultura oímos a burócratas y a viejos billonarios como si fueran santos de hace siglos. Y mantenemos a los jóvenes sin una buena educación y sin trabajo. Drogados con imágenes alienantes y materialistas de cómo deben ser sus vidas.… Read more...

La Ventaja de Capital de la Minería de BTC

Mientras la capacidad de adquirir criptomoneda no esté liberada de la capitalización (comprar, minar), las criptomonedas adolecen del mismo problema que el sistema anterior. Sirven para hacer a los ricos mas ricos de forma desproporcionada, y otorgarles control sobre la propia moneda. La única salida es crear moneda como contrapartida a valor añadido.

Las cryptos actuales son recursos escasos que la gente roba o acapara, como pasa con el dinero fiat o el oro. Lo único de valor real es el trabajo y la creatividad de las personas, no el dinero, que es una simple (pero necesaria) herramienta de compensación de cuentas.… Read more...

El Final de la Ilustración

El concepto de “estar preparado” que tanto resonaba hasta mi generación definía el aprendizaje como una acumulación de conocimientos. Esto era el planteamiento Enciclopédico que está cumpliendo ahora 250 años.

Internet es el principio del fin para este concepto. En la red estás a un clic de cualquier dato, o conocimiento que quieras consultar. La fiabilidad depende de la fuente, pero la esencia del fenómeno es lo importante.

Una vez que todo el conocimiento está online el valor añadido se desplaza de acumularlo, a hacer cosas con él. Del aprendizaje académico al desarrollo de “skills”, es decir, del saber al hacer.… Read more...

Connecting the unconnected

Creativity is the capacity to connect what’s apparently unconnected. Modern industrial management is focused on optimization, risk controlling, and error reduction. Not on inventing or creating new stuff.

5+5=? -> is the way most of the world approaches problems
? + ? = 10 -> is the way creative people see the word

Creativity is needed to solve problems in a new way, but also to create your reality. Creativity solves problems and creates reality.… Read more...

Thinking is the Box

The problem is not about thinking inside or outside the box. The problem is the process of thinking in itself. Ideas and creativity are not about thinking.

Detach from thought and see things from the outside, with the information that comes from subconscious. That’s where real intelligence lies.

Are you willing to renounce to your mental models, and embrace things as they come? Stop thinking too much. Thinking is the box.… Read more...
