No - I didn't get the idea from the bad movie
I got the idea after reading the essays at the back of The Man Who Tasted Shapes by Richard E. Cytowic, MD. (read circa 1994) A lot of new ground-breaking research has been done into the brain.

The limbic region is the area of the brain where creative thought is spawned.
