The future is asking our children to be creative. The organization, Partnership for the 21st Century Skills asked a collection of 250 researchers at 60 different institutions what was the most important attribute for the future...creativity. There was also a global survey by IBM of 1500 top executives in 60 countries...creativity. We do not know how to train people to have creativity but we can find the places in the brain where it occurs
We know that there is a temporary deactivation of the prefrontal cortex, this is where higher thinking happens. We also know that the dorsalateral prefrontal cortex is offline. This is the area that holds on to doubt or where the inner critical lives. (Any surgeons around that can help with this?) We also know that the brain is flooded with the neurotransmitters that make us feel good. The brain also is able to make time slow down or speed up and performance is enhanced. There is a flow between alpha and theta and beta waves. This is called a flow state. The flow state is the optimal state of consciousness where we feel our best and perform our best. Our concentration is laser-focused. Everything else falls away. Action and awareness merge, our sense of self and self consciousness disappear.
I have had this flow state occur with LENS neurofeedback. It is wonderful.
