  1. This is so interesting ..that either most of us think in the early mornings or late night time .. what happens to our brains during the whole day .. we shut them off or what ….

    I don’t think we shut off our thoughts during certain times – but we may not be as effective at thinking “creatively” at certain times. Perhaps we are still processing and evolving when we do routine tasks – but our creativeness gels and comes to the forefront at certain times of the day.

    Our natural sleep rhythms have been somewhat corrupted by artificial lighting which allow us to stay up all hours of the night. It’s natural for there to be two major sleep periods. where you wake up in the middle of the night and then fall back asleep again. I find that I will often awaken in the early morning hours while it is still dark, just after dreaming, and have the closest access to my subconscious mind and thus the most fecund creativity. I just lay there and think about anything and everything. But often wondering about a problem at any time of the day will allow your subconscious mind to dwell on it and then produce a solution or answer “out of the blue” or night as the case may be. So I’d vote for “early morning”, but in general I think it is the darkness of night that ‘s most conducive to creativity because we turn more inward and activate our internal creative muses.
