In this presentation, I discuss the role/influence of the ever-changing human brain-organisation in the registration and interpretation of sensorial stimuli (signals). These both concepts are grounded on the organisation/in-formation framework  and defined in a manner similar to Pierce’s semiotics. The discussion relies on recent achievements of cognitive science and on perceiving mathematics as “The science of human cognitive processes and archetypes” . The arguments connect philosophical and mathematical ideas to biological-organisation configurations and lay down a backcloth that allows for advancing a definition of creativity that stems from comparing an intrinsic complexity measure of the intervening organisations, as well as, forcing biological stasis out of balance into another stasis-basin or domain. As defined and due to the mediation of the human nervous system in the perception and thinking processes, creativity refers to a context much wider than mathematics, encompassing literature, music and visual arts. The present work continues discussions held at L’Imagination 2018 and Creativity 2019 congresses.
In the proposed abstract setting, creativity implies the instantiation of novel forms of organisation and interpretation enacted by a sudden change, an out-of-the-blue change so to speak. This becomes clear by considering the dynamical behaviour intrinsically associated to “concrete” organisations. The connections with biological elements show that there is a strong natural process that counteracts, but does not prevent, creativity. Namely, homeostasis. To compensate that and maintain human beings creative and being able to readily move away, “thinking out of the box”, we should mimic nature once more and keep active the regulatory processes that swiftly move biological organisations from one homeostatic configuration to another.
In the case of human brains and intellectual activity, the majority of these processes relate to synaptic plasticity and local re-organisations in our three brains, or at least in the rational and emotional ones. One way to achieve this flexibility is through the “power of ideas” and “thought-experiments”, by employing theoretical and philosophical thinking to explore wild, never thought, ideas, concepts and possibilities. This is an exercise that, unfortunately, the scientific community at large and its satellite communities (sci-fi, for instance) have progressively abandoned during the last three decades, with the possible exception of physicists and philosophers. It is time to revert this trend in favor of better tackling the complex problems facing mankind. This work aims to contribute to a better understanding of the usually underrated role of biological processes and organisations in human creativity. Such understanding, hopefully, can help us to achieve greater clarity.
