Muses have fascinated for millennia, yet seldom receive as much exposure as the artistic geniuses they inspire. New science places much emphasis on the role of the observer as the catalyst or creator of reality, offering here a fresh perspective on what happened when Lewis Carroll played with Alice Liddell, when Rainer Maria Rilke dreamt of Lou Andreas Salome, or when John Lennon wrote for his one and only Yoko Ono. An interconnected, quantum view of the world is used to explain the magic of muses, and can also be used to channel inspiration more prominently into everyday life. Featuring a bite-sized chronology of muses from ancient Greece to the 21st century, and exploding the myth that muses are always women, the book finishes with a scientific look at the future of inspiration.
