    In one afterlife you may find that God is the size of a microbe and is unaware of your existence. In another, your creators are a species of dim-witted creatures who built us to figure out what they could not. In a different version of the afterlife you work as a background character in other people’s dreams. Or you may find that the afterlife contains only people whom you remember, or that the hereafter includes the thousands of previous gods who no longer attract followers.

    Der weltbekannte Hirnforscher David Eagleman und sein Freund, der Komponist Anthony Brandt, widmen sich in ihrem Hörbuch der Frage, wie das kreative Neue entsteht. Dabei blicken sie auf die kreative Software des Gehirns: Wie funktioniert sie? Was machen wir damit? Wohin führt sie uns? Es erweist sich, dass der kreative Prozess vor allem von drei Fähigkeiten des Gehirns abhängt: Biegung, Brechung und Verbindung. An vielen Beispielen, von der Raumfahrt über die Wirtschaft und die Kunst bis zum Sport, demonstrieren die Autoren, wie unser Denken die Welt immer wieder neu erschafft.
