John Cleese on the Origin of Creativity
This talk from the 2009 Creativity World Forum in Germany is part critique of the modern world's hustle-and-bustle, part handbook for creating the right conditions for creativity. I agree with his view that to access intuition (including creative ideas) we need to shut the analytical left-brain, wordy mind off for a while and just be open to what comes, as images and feelings. Like great ideas come during a walk in the country, or walking around the block alone in the early hours, or upon waking. But the left brain does have a role too; for example, being open to external ideas and stimuli to help build upon and develop the original intuitive idea, and planning the steps toward manifesting the vision.

Sir Ken Robinson: Do schools kill creativity?
Creativity expert Sir Ken Robinson challenges the way we're educating our children. Why don't we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it's because we've been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies - far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity - are ignored or even stigmatized. Robinson champions a radical rethink of our school systems, to cultivate creativity and acknowledge multiple types of intelligence.

The 'Semmelweis Effect'
The Semmelweis Effect is the tendency of scientists to reject new evidence that contradicts an established paradigm. It is named after Ignaz Semmelweis who, in 1847, discovered that the death rates of mothers having children could be significantly reduced if doctors disinfected their hands before delivering babies. His peers viciously criticized his findings because they could not understand the reason they worked. Semmelweis ultimately suffered a serious mental breakdown and was committed to an insane asylum where he died in 1865 at the age of only 47. This video tells a tragic story which is still happening in other areas today.
