go to great depths; your idea awaits you there

Posted by thoughtnotstatic on 3 March 2008

“Ideas are like fish.

If you want to catch a little fish, you can stay in shallow water. But if you want to catch a the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.

Down deep, the fish are more powerful and more pure. They’re huge and abstract. and they’re very beautiful.

I look for a certain kind of fish that is important to me, one that can translate to cinema. But there are all kinds of fish swimming down there. There are fish for business, fish for sports. There are fish for everything.

Everything, anything that is a thing, comes from the deepest level. Modern physics calls that level the Unified Field. The more your consciousness—your awareness—is expanded, the deeper you  go toward this source, and the bigger the fish you can catch.”
David Lynch, from his introduction to Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creatity
