Neurogenesis develops new ideas on relating entropy to creativity, utilizing neuroplasticity and neurogenesis. Normalization lulls the mind into sub-critical mindsets and new brain is hard to access. The 100 billion neuron universe is portrayed as complex beyond scientific measure. What is needed is a new language that recognizes and respects flexibility and fluidity. All mental illnesses are in one way or another dissociative. Our typical socialization values 'normal' above all else. This results in de-personalisation and a lessening of intersubjectivity. Wolfgang Pauli and Carl Jung recognized the need to break down Normalization and evolve by confronting the unconscious. The repressed self may undergo an epiphany or transformation that 'blows the mind.' This happens when psychedelic drugs stir up plasticity making reconciliation with the unconscious the challenge of each psychedelic experiment. Entropy is recyclable and is seen as the archetypal force raising the phoenix from the ashes of the former self.

About the Author:

David Courtney is the author of several articles on education, including Mutancy 2000 and the Art of Thresholds. He is also a painter and filmmaker. Using neuroplasticity and neurogenesis by way of creative thresholding, the author evolved from clinical depression to an expansive understanding of brain processes. By placing neuromapping on a spectrum, one gains insight into the role of empathy in conceptual complexity in the brain. As with most people who are affected by a mind that refuses to be compliant with life goals, the struggle for survival becomes dramatically important. Spending a year and a half in bed with depression triggered in David Courtney the need to find a way out of the debilitating labyrinth.
