How do you come up with your ideas?

In most of my "psychedelic" works, the composition is often in flux long into the process.  I might begin with a primitive idea, but often I find myself discovering it the entire time it is being created.  The product is the result of the interaction of a feedback loop between my mind (and its context at the moment), and the medium smeared over time.  Usually then the archetypes and imagery which instantiate mature and evolve into a final form, which I discover literally in the moment they arrive, if that makes sense.
