My research domain is experience flow of landscape creation in brain. Process of creating included flow, being ‘‘in flow’’ is the way that challenges by tackling a series of goals, continuously processing feedback about progress, and adjusting action based on this feedback. The flow of the process related to motivation, autotelic, attention, emotion, memory load. Those are higher cognitive activity and we don’t exactly know which kind of activity bound to the brain. The most fascinate thing to me is ecstasy of spiritual self-forgetfulness stages.
