How Neurographica® came to be and how it changed over the years
Updated: Apr 29
Neurographica® is prefixed with the word "neuro". The brain and its numerous neural connections are referred to as neuro. Human existence, hand plasticity, art, and meaning are all combined in Neurographica®. The human brain is very agile, meaning that it is capable of undergoing any changes. It's only a matter of believing it. Did Pavel Piskarev, the method's creator, believe that a whole institute, if not a global movement, of Neurographica® artists, would emerge from a single word that popped into his head by chance?
Neurographica® begins its journey high above the clouds, on a flight from Moscow to Israel.
Now it appears to be a legitimate magical tale. When something is born, it's always a joyous occasion. Even more: It happens up there, high above the ground.
"Neurographica" appeared seemingly out of nowhere. During that trip, I just heard it in my head. The moment I started to turn my head, I realised that all the passengers were asleep.
Has my ear been playing tricks on me? Since I heard it, someone had to say it. However, the more I turned my head, the more convinced I became that the word sounded exactly like it did in my head.
On April 29, 2019, all Neurographica® enthusiasts celebrated the method's milestone fifth-year anniversary. Worldwide, creative broadcasts were heard. People drew a lot, and they did it enthusiastically. Neurographica® is now one of the most widely used and rapidly evolving psychological techniques. It is simple enough for even children to grasp. Thus, different areas of Neurographica® application are expanding at a rapid pace: Neurographica® and children, Neurographica® and science, Neurographica® and production processes, and Neurographica® in large work teams. And there's a lot more. The technique has been scientifically validated and proven. Pavel successfully defended his doctoral dissertation on August 29, 2019.
It is surprising that the development and implementation of Neurographica within a variety of structures of society occurs pretty easily. If you look at the history of psychology as a whole, then it has developed with great difficulty. The great minds had to pass a lot of things in the past, and in our days also. They analyzed, observed, drawn their conclusions, proved it, and conveyed their knowledge to others. "Neurographica develops like in a fairy tale: I came, I saw, I won". In 2020, the method won the competition of psychological techniques as the simplest and most effective.
Surprisingly, Neurographica® is very easy to make and put into use in a variety of social structures. Taking the history of psychology as a whole, it is clear that it has progressed through great difficulty. Past and present minds had to analyse, observe, draw conclusions, communicate with other scientific minds, and prove a lot of things. Neurographica® unfolds like a fairy tale: I came, I saw, and I triumphed. It was the simplest and most effective method in the psychological technique competition in 2020.
We can now safely assert that Neurographica® is on the cutting edge of the third millennium. It is currently taught in 38 countries in five languages: Russian, Hebrew, German, Spanish, and English. These numbers are increasing year after year.
The secret to Neurographica's popularity?
Why is Neurographica® gaining so much traction among the public? It's probably because it's manual labour that requires creativity. Today, when almost everything is made by machines, even writing, manual labour seems out of the ordinary. The entire world is in peril. Artificial intelligence is advancing in terms of development and adoption. The human race is fading into the background.
But you know what's truly fascinating? A real neurographic line can't be calculated or created by a machine or artificial intelligence. In other words, the future can't go on without people.
It is also critical that fine motor skills contribute to the development of the cerebral cortex, which is responsible for the majority of the functions of the human body and life. Now, which requires more hand motor skills: text typed on a laptop keyboard or handwritten text?
Fine motor skills are immediately linked to the brain and help to form higher mental functions. Teach a monkey to write, and it will outgrow a human.
People who use technology to make their lives easier do a lot less work. It looks good. However, as a result of this, the pace of development begins to slow. When a person needs something, he strives for it. So, if a person has everything he needs, and it's all very convenient, why should he move his body or, more importantly, his brain?
Neurographica® is a calligraphy technique. The first reason is that it has its own set of terms, definitions, and rules. Second, aesthetics and the subtlety of human experiences are important in it.
Drawing Neurographica® allows people to create their own new, desired reality. They are the ones who create. They are free of anxieties and neuroses. Indeed, our Algorithm for Removing Limitations easily handles them and aids in achieving harmony with oneself and the environment. They can be called wizards if they have learned all the skills in the Instructor Course.
More than one round of the exhibition "Neurographica® of the World" has already taken place in the last two years. With their works, neurographica artists have conquered the world of traditional art.
What else could explain the growing popularity of Neurographica®? Why? Because it effectively captures the emotions and feelings of people in a visual format. Additionally, it is capable of eliciting something from the void that becomes the visible embodiment of the lives of multiple people. This kind of art doesn't give you ready-made answers, like in classical art. You don't know what will happen until the very last moment in Neurographica®. However, it has the power to shine a light into the darkest recesses of a person's mind, allowing them to discover new possibilities and remedies.
Deni Diderot (Age of Enlightenment):
"A nation that emphasises drawing when it teaches children as much as it does the counting, reading, and writing will outperform all other nations in the sciences, arts, and crafts"
Do you recall Dostoevsky's famous remark, "Beauty will save the world?" It's also worth noting that beauty isn't something that can be copied, but rather something vibrant and original. This requirement is fully met by Neurographica®.
Entering the big arena
Currently, there is active work being done to integrate Neurographica® into various state structures. Neurographica® is also gaining traction in science, particularly medicine. A scientific paper on the use of Neurographica® in the treatment of cancer patients is available. Even more reviews from people who aren't doctors are out there about how to improve your health. One of Moscow's psychological institutes has already adopted Neurographica® as one of its disciplines. Psychology is a serious science that is vital in today's world.
Questioning everything is part of the scientific method. This could be the foundation of any scientific knowledge that needs to be proven. Neurographica® was initially met with scepticism and suspicion in scientific circles. We no longer need to prove anything. Now, if the doubters require it, allow them to demonstrate the contrary. Neurographica® is a work of science.
Neurographica® is now used in a wide range of scientific fields, including philosophy, sociology, psychology, pedagogy, and more. The amazing thing is that Neurographica® can be combined with any method or helping intervention. It doesn't contradict anything, but it does help other techniques work better.
The Psychology of Creativity Institute, of which Neurographica® is a part, has its scientific know-how, among other things. Theory of imagination, metamodern theory, the pyramid of consciousness, paradigm analysis, hero ascension theory, multirole personality, and much more. Neurographica® has a great time with all of this.
It's also a fact that the neurographic line was developed using scientific principles. It can be found in both nature and human life. Take a map of any city, at the very least. Do you see the completely flat streets? Nature makes its adjustments over time, and everything takes on a neurographic appearance.
What about images of cellular life? The brain's rhythms: alpha, beta, gamma, delta, and theta? While the neurographic line does reflect brain frequency, it can also be manipulated by the person drawing it. Are you aware of this? To put it another way, by using Neurographica®, you can fine-tune your brain's frequency. The Instructor Course at the Psychology of Creativity Institute teaches this.
What is the mechanism behind it? Mirror neurons. Activated neurons. What a person sees makes up his world. What a person thinks about starts to connect with what he or she thinks about. Unexpected conclusions and decisions follow as a result of this.
