The notes and references of material used in the 3rd Ajatus workshop at Aalto university
Today, May 2nd 2017, I gave a pretty interesting lecture and workshop on what ideas are and how to generate them at Aalto university. Thank you, William Bengston for using the phrase “pretty interesting” so often. Now it’s etched in my vocabulary for the years to come.
The talk was like scratching the surface of the digital realities. This has many other names to such as larger consciousness (phenomenology) system. A term coined by Thomas Campbell.
At the core of the lecture was the question:
If our reality is an evolving simulation, what can we, as creative people, do with it?
The group was around 35 people, BA students in art education and film making. The lecture started at 13:00 and ended at 17:00. Intense and fast paced with a short break around 15:00.
What follows are the slides I used in this lecture. They come without annotation but I do have the links to some mentioned research papers or other sources below the slide sets. Bear in mind, the presentation only reflects a fraction of the actual research that is done by scientists.
I asked the students and teachers what an idea is or means to them. The results were very good and it promised to be a great afternoon together. Some people immediately cut through the chase.
- “An aspect of an idea is that I get a good feeling in my body”
- “Ideas are about communication”
During the introduction I spoke about my own life and how I got inspired by listening to researchers about their findings. This inspiration was enough to keep reading and listening- It was only when I participated in a Remote Viewing workshop myself that I began to truly accept the notion that there are ways to access information than through our 5 senses. This lesson of intellectual accepting (or declining) versus own experience is a profound one. Also, during this lecture I accepted that people would be sceptical (a form of belief) but hoped they were open-minded enough to sit and listen. At the end of the lecture I introduced to them a for of remote viewing. Maybe one of 2 people would get the same experience as I had?

I showed parts of one of my own RV sessions. The important aspect I wanted to bring across was that the information one receives can be at first very elusive. It takes practice and patience and stubbornness to get better and better results.
We ended with a relaxation exercise and a super simplified remote viewing exercise. The relaxation exercise took about 10 minutes and then followed the assignment. The target, a photo hidden on my computer, was shown AFTER the audience had shared the results publicly. I wrote most of them down on the white board and followed a categorization akin to classic Remote Viewing.
