Creative ideas probably occur as part of a potentially dangerous mental process, when associations in the brain are flying freely during unconscious mental states — how thoughts must become momentarily disorganized prior to organizing. Such a process is very similar to that which occurs during psychotic states of mania, depression, or schizophrenia. In fact, the great Swiss psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler, who gave schizophrenia its name, described a “loosening of associations” as its most characteristic feature: “Of the thousands of associative threads that guide our thinking, this disease seems to interrupt, quite haphazardly, sometimes single threads, sometimes a whole group, and sometimes whole segments of them.”

what really fascinates me is how people create this persona of themselves on social networks, often making themselves to be people they want to be rather than who they actually are. 

I think I’m guilty of this to a degree, in person I’m not as eloquent. But still, cool concept.

The Internet’s one giant social experiment and we’re the hamsters.
