FN-coverWhere do new ideas come from? In his new book, From Nowhere: Artists, Writers, and the Precognitive Imagination, Eric Wargo argues that they come from the future, He supports that jaw-dropping hypothesis with numerous examples of artists and writers whose works revealed their own future. “Long story short,” writes Wargo in a recent post on Medium, “I think we all receive oblique and foggy signals from our future self when we are creating…” From Ice Age cave paintings to the novels of Virginia Woolf and Philip K. Dick, the films of Werner Herzog and David Lynch, and even the songs of The Beatles, Wargo makes a case for the inherently time-defying nature of inspiration. Wargo, the author of the acclaimed Time Loops, may well have cracked the key to the creative imagination.
