Albert Einstein thought in an entirely different way from ordinary people, and theorist Alfred Korzybski wanted to know why. Studying Einstein's unique thought processes in his book "Science and Sanity", he explained how genius works, and named this process Non-Aristotelian Thinking. Creative Intelligence extends Korzybski's concept by weaving together the Eastern philosophies of Realization and Liberation. Falconar teaches us to 'unlearn' the rigid patterns of thought that we are indoctrinated with - and to escape the confines of memory, association and, most importantly, words. Children live in a colour and sense world until words replace their senses. Then joy ends and the colours fade into a black and white world of words. This book teaches how to regain our senses and return to that original world. In this revised edition, Ted Falconar has written a comprehensive new introduction and provides additional work on enlightenment and visualisation throughout the book.
About the Author
Ted Falconar applied his lifelong interest in philosophy and human relations to managing companies. Ideas enabling workers to fulfil their potential and to harness their creativity were so successful that Tetley Tea Company, of which he was Managing Director, was turned around so that its productivity more than doubled and a large loss was changed in to spectacular profits. His writing can be seen as being concerned with his lifelong search for purpose and meaning in life.
"When this important seminal book was first published in 2000, it was hailed as a work of genius, breaking new ground in the quest for keys to Creative Intelligence and Self Liberation. I strongly recommend this book to earnest seekers after Truth who are prepared to open up their minds to a fresh and rewarding approach to the real meaning of life." Alan Jacobs, Author of The Essential Gnostic Gospels "Drawing principally on the insights of Alfred Korzybski's Non-Aristotelian thinking but also the ideas of psychologist Abraham Maslow, Indian guru Krishnamurti, and others, Ted Falconar makes a powerful plea for rejecting the word-dominance so prevalent in the West (since "words are not the things they represent") and reinstating a tradition of visualization based on creative perception and Eastern enlightenment leading to self-liberation." Jack Herbert, Writer and Poet "Through the ages, deep thinking people have tried to point the way to Enlightenment. Ted Falconar is in that tradition. He believes the ability to visualise creatively is a faculty that lies dormant, waiting to be awakened. He makes the radical suggestion that there is a link between the age-old practice of meditation and human development and that 'verbal thinking' has sidetracked human beings from the main line of evolution. This book tells us how to get back on track" Suzanne McKay Woolley, Journalist, Author and Yoga Teacher"
