Huh.  People express psychological stress differently.  Who'd a thunk it?

I was trying to stand on a rifle with a high power bell. That's creative, right?

This explains a lot about the middle east too. Millions of young men with no hope of marriage due to cultural reasons...

...and they don't even get to see tits or anything because of the religious bullshiat keeping broads covered up.

But you spend your time looking for more creative ways to have sex, so it's a wash.

I thought undiagnosed brain tumors are what put you in bell towers.

Notice the most sexually repressed cultures have the best dirty books? Perfumed Garden, Kama Sutra...

I'm pretty sure every lone wolf killer here in the US wouldn't have gone and shot up a school, movie theater, or bombed Boston if they were getting laid regularly.

Of course there was a reason that wasn't happening: they were all mentally disturbed. No one wants to get with that. But I bet the frustration and rage of jealously against other happy people didn't help the situation.

well, those name you mentioned certainly fit the bit for having inner turmoil to go along with their genius.

The theory is rather obvious... Art is used as an escape... Those who have the most to escape from, end up being the best artists.

"Two laboratory experiments found that Protestants produced more creative artwork... "

How does one scientifically measure "more creative artwork"?

well, as the director tarkovsky said (and I'm grossly paraphrasing), there is always a struggle to create art.  if there was no struggle, there would be no need for art.  if the world were a paradise, no one would have anything to strive for, there would be no reason for art.

/ i wouldn't call art an escape though.  most stuff that's an escape is just entertainment.  like cheesy movies and video games.

Well said...   I meant that creating art is an outlet for your inner angst to sooth itself.  You're not escaping anything per se, but using art as a coping mechanism for the crap in your life.

They see a lot a Jewish tits on the Internet. Jewish porn appears to be a high-ranked search term for Muslim countries.

yeah.  i can see that.  if you're taking it from the artist's point of view, coping may be the reason...  i would call it aspiration though.  trying to get to some truth, knowing it's probably impossible, but aspiring anyways.  a lot of times, it's not coping at all, it can also cause just as much trouble.

/ for example, kierkegaard.  he wrote some brilliant philosophy, but in the process of adhering to it, probably failed to live his life... kafka would be another good example. i think his writing may have helped him avoid his life... for all their aspiring towards some truth, their discipline made it impossible to live (that's one of the reasons i liked camus so much.  imho, he basically said, shiat's wack.  either you try to be accurate and truthful, and realize it is impossible to believe in anything, or you be an absurd hero who decides he can believe in something)
