“Speaking as somebody who has been pretty creative, what you really need is something that takes over about three quarters of your mind in a meaningless way. Driving a tractor helped me to write songs for example. Driving a car long distance. Digging a ditch. Any one of those things doesn’t require a lot of thinking to do and leaves the other part of the mind just roaming around, spitting out stuff that is allowed to come through. Real creativity is a gift that comes from heaven knows what holy place. It comes out strictly because you are somehow able to get out of your own way.”
John Perry Barlow
