Part of our human condition is experiencing “ideas” within our mind when we simply aren’t doing anything at all. I would imagine that this part of the brain would light up when I am going for a walk, taking a shower, driving my car, brushing my teeth or even in my daydreams. What about these simple task experiences makes them unique for generating a spark of creativity? What if we could determine which experiences in our everyday lives hold this magical power? Could it be possible that each individual person has their own source of event that fuels this fire? Maybe, it is not even within a daydream or a relaxing shower, maybe, the spark thrives within words, shapes or colors. Think about that. What if we could pin point specific actions, movements or memories within our mind that push our imaginations. The PBS series describes how our sequence in language is a key characteristic that separates us from animals. I wonder if anyone has studied a sequence of events or movements that cultivate these types of sparks. If we use tools as extensions of our body then most certainly movement would be a source of inspirational power. If we could detect an individuals “Human Spark” as being a walk in the park, perhaps, we could build teams and relationships with business models that utilize idle moments.
If we understand that humans can think about what other people are thinking to the 5th order (Heavy computing) then can we teach and harness this ability for education? We should be development educational simulated experiences that transport us into another environment where we view their world through the minds of their people. WOW. Now that would be a transformative community.
