There are two basic ways for an artist to work: slow and deliberately, or fast and intuitively. Some people even use both methods, at varying times.
Ctein is experimenting with the latter, so far with very good results.
I tend to favor quick-and-intuitive myself. Not only do you get more done, but you also avoid the drawn-out struggle between your intellectual self and your Higher Self, simply by putting the HS in charge. And the HS thinks a million times faster than the human self, and can see much further.
The downside is that the ego feels, quite correctly, that it can't honestly take credit for the work, since it clearly "comes from above", and it really does not like that. So for those with a strong ego, this can become a struggle.
