Creativity is considered one of the most important and highly valued of human traits, and a fundamental aspect of the sciences. However it is a complex and multifaceted phenomenon which can make it challenging to comprehensively measure, or enhance.
Psychedelic states, dreams and hypnagogic states have all been associated with catalysing scientific insights on occasion, and they may share common features that make them amenable to insight generation and creativity enhancement. However the psychedelic state may have its own characteristic features that make it amenable to creativity enhancement. With psychedelics, context is important – what factors are important when considering using psychedelics as applied catalysts of scientific creativity, and why might this be important at this time?
This talk will explore a number of questions arising around psychedelics and creativity:
