Another talk about Ken Robinson pn Changing Paradigms. This time with a creative way to visualize it.
What implications might this have for Sunday school and spiritual formation?
A friend sent me this TED talk by Dr. Ken Robinson today and it has me thinking about how we experience the world and the God who created the world.
If you want a more in depth perspective, take a look at The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World by Iain McGilchrist. Thick book but solid perspective of the brain in the Western world.
How do you understand intelligence and how do you cultivate creativity?
There are many layers to the movie Inception and on my second viewing with new friends from my new doctoral cohort, I was captivated by the questions surrounding how we know, believe, feel and experience reality.
As a part of an earlier conversation in the day, Len Sweet shared that we can recognize reality by it pushing back. This is the future story we will live with holograms and avatars. Inception poses the solution of knowing reality by the physical marker of a totem–a physical item with specific characteristics and weight unique to every person. This makes a great deal of sense to me when I think about the Reality of God.
What are your totems that bring you back to the Reality of God?
Not sure if you’ve seen this video but a friend sent it to me earlier today while I was studying in the library and I almost forgot I was in the library.
I would love to do this in the midst of a coffee shop to see people’s reactions.
