The Parallel Mind series of books are written for creative individuals who are on a path of personal development through their art. The first book, Parallel Mind, The Art of Creativity introduced the concepts of “pure” v.s. “applied” creativity.
Pure creativity is that which is created for the pure joy of creative activity, without material or practical concerns or goals. Applied creativity is the application of creative thought to a defined goal or purpose. Most artforms and pure science fall under the first term. Pure creativity is the subject of the first books in the series.Watch for future books on applied creativity.
