Creativity and Leadership

For the second consecutive year I have given, at the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences, a course on creativity and leadership.

This workshop was for a large part about physics research on time and our reality. My premise is that good or great ideas send signals from the future back in time, or, we can go ahead in time and pick up those signals.

Remote viewing as a source of inspiration

Ed May spoke with Jeffrey Mishlove in this video about how an attention grabbing event in the future is easier to be observed in a remote viewing experiment. My theory is that a good or great idea, causes positive emotions among many people in the future. Thus, a good or great idea might very well be easier to be picked up than a less so idea. However, to do so one need to train oneself to become more susceptible for subtle signals. In this workshop we tried two overt techniques and one covert technique.

  1. Silencing the mind with binaural beats and drawing data from the future, about 10 minutes ahead in time
  2. Silencing the mind with a relaxation exercise and drawing data from the future, about 10 minutes ahead in time
  3. applying my 1st Law of Creativity: who dares to speak up

Science, art and imagination

Bold claims require bold evidence, hence we looked at various theories and studies that support these claims. We looked at people in the creative fields and analyzed what they had to say.

Among the material we looked were these videos:

Being Your Self

Also, aside of reality itself, you as a human being need to know what you want, be specific about your goals and take steps. Without those key ingredients not much will happen.

My short list on elements that make up the toolkit to make stuff happen is:

  • Intention – like a goal, realism or dream. Intention is about a clear idea of a future event. But, it is not about being stuck in this, let go.
  • Attention – such as belief, concentration and ritual. Here a paradox takes place, some times one needs to repeat or focus. At other times you need to let go and trust.
  • Intensity – for example emotion, trauma or shock. Some event that creates a shock in your life, can have dramatic impact.
  • Repetition – Close to attention but more about time and less about focus. If a shock is involved it might be less needed.
  • Need – is this about your ego or does it benefit others? Likely the need from another being or the Larger Consciousness System itself, is the driving force.

The research done by Herb Mertz does an excellent job on balancing the above elements. To me, this area of research is very exciting and full of paradoxes, sudden limits and flip-flop moments.

The Paradoxical Toolkit

The attitude to become a whole human being seems to be about:

  • You try to use the system to your benefit → fail in long term
  • You do things to help others → more chance on success
  • your actions are a consequence of whom you are manipulative → fail in long term
  • helping others → more chance on success
  • concerned about other peoples opinions → fail in long term
  • authentic → more chance on success
  • You have a goal and vision → more chance on success
  • You are like a pinball in a pinball machine → fail in long term

And there are so many variables, ifs and buts. One thing has become clear to me and that is that there is a strong link between

  • Being authentic
  • Setting a clear objective
  • Being there to help others
  • Being creative
  • Being a good leader

Know what You Want

The “know what you want” part I illustrated with a few examples on how an authentic self makes choices (take steps) that are more aligned with her or his goals and intentions (want).

My 1st Law of Creativity states:

IF : secretLife == privateLife == PublicLife
Then : authentic

Thus, when you can bring together those aspects of yourself, it is easier to be yourself and go through life without second guessing if you should do something. This especially holds water in the realm of feeling ashamed and therefor holding back on matters you actually find interesting.

Last Bits

I have at my archive a page dedicated to the mechanics of this being a virtual reality and how it relates to for example time, and altering “matter” in this reality.

The workshop was about 16 academic hours long, something I cannot summarize easily in a blog post. Aside of the quantity of the content, the questions and discussions steered the teaching in various directions too. All in all, the pull towards creating a book of sorts pulls stronger and stronger at me…
