Creativity is atypically wide neural nets - the wiring of the brain being broader, linking to different areas. Creativity is enhanced by the arts - dance, writing, imagery and sport. It is perhaps the oldest and most effective form of brain surgery. It is the way we enhance our intelligence and increase the rate of innovation, invention and empathy simultaneously. Put simply, creativity is a transferable skill because the brain gets wired better, less single track and more a network able to interrelate concepts and knowledge, less "single track road" and more "spider web." If we push maths and science at the expense of the arts and sport, it is akin to shooting athletes in the feet and expecting them to win.

BOO!!! Are you scared? No? Oh shucks, and I tried so hard. Never mind, fear is quite harmful anyway, aren't we saturated with it?

I personally found that fear never "scared the hell out of me," but it scared the love out of me. I can't be "scared straight" but I can be scared senseless.

Fear decreases our intelligence and creativity, when I stop watching the news and horror movies my creativity surges and I feel great. Then I can be a positive influence in the world with the talents I have. Then I am happy. Then I feel blessed. xxx

BOO! Did I get you that time? What? Not even a little bit? Ah, come on! Jump a tiny bit, just for me? :)
