The big question driving Episode EF13 is … What is the source of creativity? Everyone wants to use their imagination to create art. But everyone around you seems to be more creative than you. And the same thought lingers in the mind of the person you see as creative. So most never act on the creative impulse and, like a muscle, it atrophies. Without social approval, our creativity doesn’t exist and this creates a false belief you need to be special to be creative.
But art, imagination, and creativity aren’t mystical powers divinely granted to only a few, but instead are a cumbersome process where you need to wake up every day and work hard — just like any other job requiring hard work and years of practice. Although everybody wants to be creative, it’s the will we usually lack. But, unlike some mysterious force we can’t define, the will is more than attainable. Do you have the guts to face the failures you’ll have to endure to attain it?Episode EF13 Summary
Facing serious amnesia, Eric Clemens with the help of Dr. Eden Harper tries to recollect his lost memories. Dr. Harper takes an unconventional road not only to help Eric track his past, but to create a foundation for his future as well. As they dig deeper and deeper, Eric has to face demons he didn’t even know existed.
This episode of the Evolve Faster Podcast will investigate what art is and how do we perceive the concept of creating art. Through psychological theories ranging from William James to Carl Jung with a neuroscientific backup, the goal is to demystify the long-living mystery as it turns out–what art is and what we believe it to be are two entirely different ideas. Even more important, people who are capable to create art might not just be a chosen few.Into The Rabbit Hole
