Gabbix2,

I am simply asking you to remember that a hypo (or hyper)manic, creative episode is not the same as a major depressive episode. I'm afraid we are talking apples and oranges, here.

Major depresion is not the same as what is now known as BiPolar disorder. If you go back to your history, the creative geniuses to which you refer were usually post-humously diagnosed with BiPolar, not Major, Depression. And the artists who WERE suspected of having Major Depression mainly painted the same things over and over- rather closed-minded, don't you agree? They were being commissioned, in some cases, to STAY depressed, like Hyroniuos Bosch (sorry, I'm SURE I've misspelled his name again...)

Does the distinction between BiPolar and Major Depression make this concept a little easier to at least ponder? And, we do not mean to offend, here, merely to ponder...

I believe Ron mentioned "mental masturbation" in another thread... We are mainly doing the same thing, here... that's all. What info helps for some doesn't help others. All pondering is not one size fits all, I'm afraid...
