In reply to Depression and Creativity, posted by Phoenix1 on January 9, 2008, at 20:40:50

That subject is discussed in one of the chapters of the book "Overcoming Depression". Primarily it talks about bipolar depression and how the tendency to have looser thought connections and creative thought go together.

I'm sure someone else can express this better! But the idea is that if you say "snow" the average person might say "white" or "cold" and a more creative bipolar person might say "pure." Their mind goes from white, to clean, to untouched, to pure.... all in one leap.
