creative impulse is "whimsical" and at times unpredictable;
it may "behave" in a childlike fashion, demanding
different lines of attention, focusing and adherence that are
likely to result in the artistic individual becoming somewhat
issue of "the different" is not confined to
artists only; in fact, it is a major issue of the conscious
mind, which tends to classify life as "I" and "the
Other". Anything "different" is first grasped
suspiciously although knowing that our "acceptable "I"
is at the same time "different" to the Other... One
may depict the artist as "different", but one should
acknowledge that the "different" may see him/her "differently".

we humans are systemic creatures we tend to create and adhere
to systemic references - both to the surrounding environment
and to the Other. The most common reference system is what
we call "Normal" (common) and its obvious counterpart
the "Abnormal" (non common).
WHO IS TO DETERMINE WHAT IS NORMAL AND WHAT IS NOT?
