Is error in brain circuitry a precondition of imagination and creativity?
The human brain is
soft-wired. The brain's wiring is mushy; it is not in the main metallic;
if the brain is a machine, it is - in part - a biological machine, a
biological mechanism. (The brain is also chemical, electrical, magnetic,
Is it the following the case?: The
mushiness of the brain's circuitry helps to explain why
non-deterministic human reasoning is possible, why human thoughts and
reasoning can burst outside preexisting channels?
But to explain fully
the possibility of non-deterministic (non-deductive?) human thought
processes -- imagination and creativity -- is it also necessary to suppose that
thoughts that burst outside of established circuitry produce a kind of somewhat disordered complexity and chaos?
