Brain porn-popcorn is anything that captures the attention entirely, then leaves the brain with something to chew on. It could be an image, a moving musical phrase, a catchy slogan, a teasing tactile sensation, a joke, an entrancing fragrance or taste, or any combination.

Brain porn-popcorn can be used by creative persons who are stuck in a thinking or emotional rut, and need to be jarred. Paradoxical porn-popcorn will often serve.

Some images can begin to tease apart the weave of perception, revealing underlying threads.

Sometimes we need to exert some effort to see what lies beneath the surface.

Juxtaposing the familiar with the unfamiliar can sometimes jolt us out of an entrenched mental/emotional state:

A larger universe of possibilities

When we see, hear, touch, or taste more than we expected from a stimulus, we can begin to imagine even more possibilities.

Higher Energies Beyond the Self

Exposing the mind to alternative visions and “higher energies” may erase confining walls of mental mazes, revealing new pathways of thought and action.

After wandering across surreal, paradoxical, and extraordinary landscapes that challenge one’s conceptions, even the ordinary can take on trappings of the extraordinary.

And that is what you are after. An artist who reveals deep secrets that hide within everyday and ordinary objects and events presents a far more compelling vision than the artist who goes beyond — but cannot touch — one’s reality.

Everyone — Dangerous Child or not — could benefit from meaningful encounters with the hidden fractal-packed homunculi inside themselves. These are sources of fears, teasings, unutterable exhaustion, and inexplicable naughtiness. They are only accessible through the use of special tools. Dangerous Children are given these tools at particular points in development, as instruments of liberation, enlightenment, and powerful implements of confident identity and competent interaction with others.

We are talking about learning through exploration, about building upon that learning, then exploring beyond . . . in a never-ending cycle.

It is never too late to have a Dangerous Childhood.

Note: The topmost image is an extreme example of a “mind map.” Mind mapping is a useful method of breaking through writer’s block. A particularly dense and compelling mind map can easily become brain porn-popcorn.
