Chaos ( Entropy ), Creativity and Cognition - A visual aproach

It is not all time creative ... I spend a lot of time surrounded with a mess of objects, thoughts, technical equimpments, images, ideas ... it is rather a chaos than order, association, beauty. Chaos seems to have the overhand ...


 



In his article:  The Controlled Chaos of Creativity [ Scott Barry Kaufma ] wrote: 

Fifty years ago, Sarnoff Mednick defined the process of creative thinking as "the forming of associative elements into new combinations which either meet specific requirements or are in some way useful.


“the forming of associative elements into new combinations which either meet specific requirements or are in some way useful. The more mutually remote the elements of the new combination, the more creative the process or solution.” 


If Mednick is right, then creative people should have a richer, better connected, and more flexible associative network than less creative people. And that's exactly what they found. The semantic memory network of people with low creative ability was much more rigid, spreading out and breaking apart into more sub-parts. In contrast, the semantic memory network of people with high creative ability was much more densely connected (flatter) and thus less rigid, making them more likely to connect associations that are distantly related to each other.
