Learning to Recreate Health

From Edward de Bono's Lateral Thinking: Creativity Step by [NonHierarchical] Step Summary The emphasis in education has always been on logical sequential thinking which is by [deductively analytical academic] tradition the only proper [true, good, and pretty] use of information. Creativity [like regenerativity] is vaguely encouraged as some [healthy yet] mysterious[ly beautiful empathic] talent. This book has been about [bi]lateral thinking. Lateral thinking is not a substitute for the traditional [hierarchical, either-or choice-making eco]logical thinking but a necessary [bilateral Left-Right] complement. Logical thinking is quite incomplete without lateral[ly stretching ecoconscious health+/pathology-,-] thinking. Lateral [intuitive empathic feeling] thinking makes quite a different use of [internal/external climate-health/pathology] information from logical (vertical) [hierarchically-nested] thinking. For instance the need to be right at every step is absolutely essential to logical thinking but quite unnecessary in lateral [organic gestalt empathic] thinking. [with heuristic implicate health/pathology feeling] It may sometimes be necessary to be [heuristically, imaginatively] wrong in order to dislocate [stress, dissonate] a [thoroughly orthodox] pattern sufficiently for it to re-form in a new way. With logical thinking one makes immediate judgments, with lateral thinking one may [must?] delay judgments in order to allow information to interact and generate new [multicultural framing of climate issue] ideas. The twin aspects of [bi]lateral thinking are first the provocative use of [potentially integrative] information and second the [resonance] challenge to accepted [exegetical] concepts. Under[story]lining both these [healthing climate] aspects is the main purpose of [bi]lateral thinking which provides a means to restructure [ecopolitical health v. pathology] patterns. This restructuring of patterns is necessary to make better [cooperative] use of [(0)sum/core/soul networking] information that is already [multiculturally] available [to ego/ecobalancing consciousness]. It [multiculturally polypathic restructuring of eco-health v degenerative egocentric pathology] is an insight restructuring. The mind[body] is a [fractal WinWin DNA/RNA designed window-climate] pattern making [eco]system. The [eisegetically stretching heuristic] mind creates [cause-effect rhythm nutrition] patterns out of the environment and then recognizes and uses [reincarnates, repurposes] such [ecological] patterns. This is the basis of its [regenerate, reiterative] effectiveness. Because the sequence of arrival of [embryonic good v toxic] information determines how it is to be arranged into a [developmentally healthy-confluent-consilient-syncretic] pattern, such patterns are always [normally, evolutionally, BusinessAsUsual?] less than the best possible [revolutionarily nutrition-optimized] arrangement of information. In order to bring such [ecological cooperative-climate model] patterns up to date and so make better use of the contained [potential integrative] information one needs a mechanism for [more than deductive-alone] insight restructuring. This can never be provided by [diseco]logical thinking which works to relate accepted [exegetical, orthodox ecopolitical healthywealth] concepts not to [optimally] restructure them. [Bi]Lateral thinking is demanded by the [organic-syncretic-empathic] behaviour of this [deductive-only] type of [suboptimizing] information processing system in order to bring about [more optimal] insight [of richer nutritious] restructuring. The [basic co-empathic trust stretching] provocative function of lateral thinking and the [either-or] challenging [both-and] function are both directed towards this end. In both cases information is used in a [health-holistic-positive deviance] manner that goes beyond reason for [eco]lateral [metaphoric] thinking works outside of [ecologically restrained] reason. Yet the need for lateral thinking is based quite [eco]logically on the [nutritional] deficiencies of a self-maximizing [ego-only monocultural] memory system which is the type of [reductiveEmpty yet organicInterdependent] system that makes the mind capable of humour [good and bad]. Lateral thinking works at an earlier [more primal interrelational] stage than [deep-etched] vertical thinking. Lateral thinking is used to [invites syncretic] restructure the [linear monocultural cause-effect string] perceptual pattern which is the way a situation is looked at [framed, and sometimes gradually acclimated toward]. Vertical thinking then accepts that perceptual [climate-gestalt] pattern and [re]develops [stretches toward?] it. Lateral thinking is [stretch to rebalance] generative, vertical [ecopolitical] thinking [and acting] is [BusinessAsCompetitivelyUsual--WinLose] selective. [Regenerative climate-health] Effectiveness is the aim of both.
