Thoughts Matter

One of the hardest things in life is to accept the occurrences of thoughts which challenges your own perspective on who you are. I’ve not only realized that I have more of those thoughts than I believed earlier in my life, but I’ve also learned to accept many of them. This is in essence the idea behind accepting who you are, but that phrase is so much of a clichĂ© that people just don’t pay attention to it. The force within us which resists these thoughts can be described in one simple word: “Fear”. I wrote about fear as the main obstacle in life in an earlier blog, and this phenomena certainly falls into that category. We are afraid to accept thoughts which would throw us outside of our comfort zone. We should always strive to better...

Methods for visualizing ideas

I’ve explored some aspects on how ideas are formed within the mind, and how we can improve upon this creative process. Part of it was emphasizing the importance of visualizing your ideas to encourage their growth. This blog will focus on some methods we can use to visualize our ideas. I hereby declare war on limitations! Our own limitations of imaginative thinking is the number one cause of death in the whole world![citation needed] The sentence above was meant to sarcastically humiliate the American government. Imaginational awareness Imagination could be described as an algorithm inside your mind used for creating new ideas based on your current knowledge, expertise and experience. This is the very essence behind growing ideas into idea fractals, we should...

The importance of visualization

I wrote about ideas in a prior blog, arguing that more significant ideas are formed when your mind finds synergies between your less significant ideas in an on going fractal motion. The basic idea was that we could boost our creative process by nurturing our less significant ideas even if they seem obvious or meaningless. This blog may be viewed as a follow-up blog concerning the subject of ideas. Let’s in this context define the concept “Idea Fractal” as a pattern connecting any number of ideas into a more significant whole. I would advice anyone reading this to read my prior blog and to have an basic understanding about fractal geometry and the isomorphism between fractal geometry and most things imaginable. Imagine one of these idea fractals...

Fear

There are several destructive forces within us which we need to conquer. Bad self-esteem is one of them, spiting one self is another. I’d argue that the most destructive force of them all is fear, this primal drive that supposedly is meant to save us from harm. How does it fit in into todays advanced and comfortable society? Fear sure is interesting, it hinders us from subjecting our selves to dangerous situations like climbing mountains, going to war or driving too fast. But wait a minute, people do those things all the time right? People are so obsessed with this emotion of fear that they can get obsessed with conquering it, like with a drug they get addicted to subjecting them selves to more and more dangerous situations just to feel the thrill of...

Our different personalities

I hung out with some newly found friends a couple of weeks ago, one of them talked about the Myers-Briggs psychology, which I hadn’t heard of before. As it intrigued me I took a test defining my four functions, I’m apparently an INTJ which is short for: Introverted, iNtuitive, Thinking and Judging. To my astonishment this personality profile explained my drives, preferences and even my personal and social quirks. (If you take the test, don’t read about your supposed personality type on that page, google another more thorough article.) I believe that people can be whoever they want to be, that our only limitations are fear and not believing in our selves. And I still believe this… The Myers-Briggs personality type doesn’t really...
