"Disorientation begets creative thinking"

I've said for a while now that some of the most valuable artistic experiences I had as a kid (and the kind I still tend to seek out) are the weird, the discomfitting, the unsettling, the inexplicable. Science being science and studies being studies, you should never place too much weight on any one piece of research, but I still like that there's at least a suggestion that I had a good reason for feeling that way.

It's funny you mention this article: a friend also mentioned it and said it reminded him of my blog. Apparently my kind of nonsense makes people smarter :-) And that's a goodly thing, says I!
