Documentary I would like to recommend - "The Creative Brain" (found on the Netflix). The author is a famous neuroscientist David Eagleman. Creativity is a trait that we all have. It helped us to survive as species, also to adapt and to excel. It is probably impossible to create something completely new - all creations are realignment and restructuring of known elements. The more various knowledge you have, the more new, valuable, interesting relationships you will see - the more original your music, scientific research or daily life will be.
Brain is amazing. The best part - every one of us can benefit from it.

Research. Apparently, we are still evolving! Programming code is not activating the usual suspect brain regions - math, language or logic. Such type of activity rather activates a so called multiple demand network, which processes several signals from different areas of the brain and both hemispheres. Sounds quite renaissance!
With, that, I demand that IT profession is classified as exact science!
OK OK, just kidding. But still, brings a whole another perspective on how we think. And code.
