The next part is ‘how to improvise’. I’m not sure if I am any good at improvising – by watching “Who’s line is it anyway?” I think I would be terrible at word improvisation. I haven’t really tested it in my art because isn’t all art improvisation in some way?
Anyway.. back to the documentary. We have our Pre-frontal Cortex to blame if we can’t improvise. That part at the front of your brain is the ‘conscious self monitoring’ we do everyday.
Have you ever thought something along the lines …” What if I threw my phone out the window of the car?” It is the pre-frontal cortex that tells you that you shouldn’t do it.
To shake up the self monitoring we need to change our routines. By making new connections in our brains we have more new and original ideas.
In the documentary the scientist went on a glider plane flight for the first time.
I wonder what we can do to change our routines/ try new things? Any suggestions?
