Well, friends,I have received a number of comments on this 'Untitled ' issue. Although I do at times search for new sources for ideas by typing strange titiles,such as,'beyond thinking', and yet this was not the case here.In fact it was simplly by accident;I must have been in the process of developing some idea when the finger did the trick !
Well,it reminds me of how once a number of art critics who found different interpretations to aa atr piece that they had described as masterpiece,turned out to be the job of a dog who had crawled over a canvas spilled the paints and did the rest with his taile !
One of my fave sci-fi writers, (who wrote more books on more subjects than de Bono!) was Issac Asimov, who said: The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny ...'
It was Libet 'way back in the 1980s who figured out that the brain knows that we are already doing something before we realize we meant to do it. Haggard & Eimer who documented that most people compare their idea of their intention to see if it matches; we then do course corrections if it doesn't. But when we're after new ideas and voyaging into new territory, it's no telling what will bring us to what we want, is there?
One of my fav stories was called 'Victory Unintentional'. It was about a group of robots that landed on Jupiter. The Jupitereans were very hostile and tried very hold to destroy them with artillery but were unable.
A long story, but in end the Jupitereans learned the robots didn't need food and didn't need air. it was after that the Jupiter people abandoned their plan to invade Earth.
On the way back to Earth in the spaceship, one robot said "Do you think we should have told them we were not human beings."
