Connecting Analytical Thinking and Intuition: And the Nights by Anders Omstedt

By Anders Omstedt

This e-book demonstrates how analytical considering and instinct could be systematically attached and educated. it truly is illustrated via figures and pictures and comprises artistic and stimulating exercises.

We reside in an international of accelerating complexity, during which perceiving truth competently is more and more vital and hard. Society’s have to tackle “global grand demanding situations” calls for that the clinical neighborhood initiates inter-disciplinary learn programmes. those are frequently some distance faraway from present programmes, that are frequently in accordance with intra-disciplinary technology. bettering our realizing of complicated difficulties and speaking this realizing to a wide crew of individuals from various backgrounds represents an enormous academic challenge.

Connecting Analytical considering and Intuition stimulates scholars and scientists to enhance their talents in considering, speaking and studying extra approximately being people. A advisor to connecting analytical considering and instinct is gifted utilizing the “dream team” process built by means of Montague Ullman, within which a gaggle of 6–8 humans systematically and thoroughly is helping the dreamer to understand goals. the significance of excellent reminiscence, which might be expert via recalling the goals, can be mentioned with regards to technological know-how and literature.

Example text

We come to a café in the park and sit down around a table. We are speaking together and I notice that the boy has picked up a flying toy, which he throws into the air. It is a beautiful dragonfly that flies around our table and we are all excited, although I know that it is just a toy. The boy then picks up a metal bullet and throws it towards me. I am afraid, but nevertheless catch it out of the air. The feelings evoked by this dream are joy at being with my family, curiosity at the entrance of the unknown boy, a mixture of concentration and amazement at seeing the airborne dragonfly, withdrawal and perhaps disappointment when real‐ izing that it is just a toy, and fear when the boy throws the bullet.

We had become The Twins. At the age of fifteen years, we started to diverge and began dressing in clothes that did not look the same, though we often failed in this as we tended to choose very similar styles. Identical twins generally share the same DNA, but already in the womb they start to differ due to random events occurring in all cells. For example, twins do not have the same fingerprints or suffer the same illnesses. My awareness grew of the importance of understanding who I was, but it was not until I began working with my dreams that I could strengthen my own identity and grad‐ ually realize that my brother and I were two quite different persons.

Parallel to this, I have worked as an oceanographer exploring how the sea functions. The strong connections between my scientific work and my dream work have surprised me. D. thesis on cooling and ice formation in the sea, I was struck by a desire to understand how ice interacts with sub-polar and polar seas. e. small ice crystals growing in water), my curiosity was first engaged by how ice crystals grow and connect to each other, forming surface ice. Then understanding how ice drifts, how ice forms ridges and leads, how ice grows and melts, and how this knowledge could be transferred to other people using forecasting methods kept me busy for a decade.
