Pelrad Drugs and Creativity (62* d) RE: Drugs and ''Creativity'' 12 Jan 00

I have noticed that creativity peaks when one is teetering on the edge of madness. I think historically, many people we consider to have been brilliant visual artists, writers and musicians, had some mental instabilities such as depression, etc., and tended to use drugs of various kinds to dull their psychic pain. Masterpieces were probably achieved during those periods between total drugged oblivion and functional normalcy. In the modern age, even prescription drugs can knock out that level of creativity...

Those who are just drugging for fun, if they get hooked, tend to obliterate what talents they have over time.
