“I really believe there’s, like, an ocean of ideas. And all of the ideas are sitting there. They bob up from time to time and come into your conscious mind and you know them. When a good idea bobs up, it really smacks you. It’s like a piece of electricity and you see the whole thing and you feel it and you know what to do. It all comes with the idea.”
I finished Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness and Creativity David Lynch’s book on creativity. Except for the occasional evangelizing for Transcendental Meditation, it’s a good, short read.
