Abstract

A free energy principle (FEP) has been recently advanced, giving a mathematical framework on how the brain of adaptive systems or organisms enable them to
carry out learning and perception. The FEP states that the collection of sensory states that the brain encounters seems to follow a natural tendency to resist
disorder, or maintain a low level of entropy (Friston, 2012). Friston (2012) posits that any adaptive change in the brain, i.e., learning, involves minimization of its
neuronal energy. This paper applies the FEP theory to Wallas’ four-stage creative process to explain how creativity in a human individual operates.
