“It’s an old idea that if we got enough people spinning in their graves we could use it as a power source, a graveyard forming a turbine array. But since the spin action depends on a preoccupation with other people’s business and opinions, have you wondered how much energy you would produce?”
Fictionist and big idea guy Steve Aylett heads at non-fiction for the first time in Heart of the Original (Unbound). This is contemporary philosophy with a sharply humorous edge.
“The body fools the mind and heart into facing in only one direction at a time.”
Here Aylett especially looks at creativity and originality as well as our reaction to it. This is a manual to creativity that no artist or heavy thinker should be without. ◊
