All humans, when concentrating on their art forms may be able to tap into some kind of knowledge. I've seen it in books, paintings, movies, music, etc. It's like they don't know they are doing it, or information is somehow beamed into their brains and they think the idea is their own. Or maybe it is their own idea and rather than some outside force choosing to give this particular individual the information, the artist themselves are formulating ideas based on their surroundings like a computer that predicts the odds of certain outcomes. The brain is probably much more powerful than some of us realize. We think we are just trying to come up with an interesting form of entertainment, but we are also making predictions of the future, or in some cases, putting together the puzzle pieces of past events. Where do our thoughts come from anyway?
