Project Mind Survey of Israeli Ph.D. Scientists Favors a New Standard of Creativity in Science
Date:4/3/2008

JERUSALEM, Israel, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- A majority of the Israeli scientists, in a recent survey on creativity, expressed a willingness to use special methods that could "put them into a creative state and keep them in this state for as long as desired." Sponsored by the Jerusalem-based Project Mind Foundation and conducted by TNS Teleseker, the survey surprisingly revealed that, even when the issue of risk was raised, one fifth of the total sample expressed a medium or high level of willingness to try these methods. More than a third of the sample expressed even a "strong willingness" to use such methods.

Over 3,300 Israeli Ph.D. scientists were solicited for their opinions on the subject of creativity in the survey conducted via the Internet and 237 full interviews were completed.

David S. Devor, Chairman of the Project Mind Foundation, advised, "The survey was designed to help the organization prepare scientists to generate unusually intense efforts of contemplation which can lead to enduring states of creative vision -- the innovative potential of which cannot be overestimated." Devor stressed that "Hopefully, much, if not all research, now being carried out in the laboratory, will someday be done entirely in the mind vastly accelerating scientific breakthroughs."

"Today," Devor continued, "scientific advance is associated with very brief 'Eureka sparks' of creative intuition, while the potential for higher, more enduring states of creativity is almost universally ignored. Perhaps this is owing to the stigma of obsession and the significant psychological and/or physiological risks associated with contemplation of unprecedented intensity. Yet risk is common to most pioneering. It is thus most significant, to the world scientific community, that our survey results indicated such a high level of willingness to undertake risks for the sake of reaching enduring states of creativity."

"Those scientists who expressed a very strong
