Summary
Investigates some of the processes underlying the creative act, concluding that the conscious and unconscious processes undergone by both artists and scientists are based on much the same pattern. Based on Koestler's book, The Act of Creation, this film explains how creativity affects the artist, the scientist, and even our daily thoughts. Problem solving, in Koestler's view, is mental shuffling of existing solutions. He calls this "bisociation." Koestler's comments are illustrated by experiments and intercut sequences which show how a fluke association of existing theories or devices has led to great scientific discoveries
