It’s the idea that “right brain” thinking
– the so called “creative” side –
is actually just a projection of left brain thinking.
We have rationality so ingrained into us that when we try to access the right brain, we just create a “model” of it.
We say, “Hey! i am a right brain thinker!”
and it means “this” or “that”
So already it eludes us.
In my view
– in a safe way-
to access the right brain
we have to:
1. not “try” to access it but let it creep up on us
2. go a bit nuts (humorously can be a safe way)
3. jiggle a lot
For me a truly create thought
puts butterflies in your stomach,
makes you laugh or cry in shock,
usually defies current thinking traditions,
makes you wonder what or why you were doing before you had it;
it’s a true “eureka” moment;
one often gibbers after having one;
or gets indigestion!
