EARTH IS CRITICALLY IN NEED OF DEEP-SEE THINKERS. BUT IS YOUR WORLDVIEW UP TO THE CHALLENGE? OUR YO!DOLPHIN!™ ASSESSMENT WILL HELP YOU FIND OUT

Almost a year ago, we posted most of the contents of the blog item you are now viewing and reading on LEAP!psych in this same space. I hope you’ll indulge me one more time by reading through it again. And, if you haven’t already done so, I’d count myself privileged if you should decide to [...]

new brainmap® website celebrates the fact that you already play the world’s most exquisite instrument.

In those early years following the 1981 release of our original BrainMap, it was more a novelty than a commercial success. Back then, the idea of piggybacking a thinking skills model on the back of actual brain research findings was a hot topic. So “hot,” in fact, that it had the national news media flocking [...]

Bullet Brain, Liquid Soul: A new metaphor and a strategy for empowering your humanity and improving your results

The title you see for this LEAP!psych item is the one I used for an article that appeared in the January, 2016 (Vol. 3, No. 1), edition of Assumption University of Thailand (Bangkok) business school’s ODI Journal.
I used the much appreciated invitation by the journal’s editors to talk about how new ways of tracking changes [...]

More than a Decade Later, the remarkable mental events and thinking skills described in The Mother of All Minds  still seem as electrifying and vital as ever

If you’ve never scouted up a copy of my book, The Mother of All Minds: Leaping Free of an Outdated Human Nature, here is how it begins:
Without the ”I,” there would be few books. And certainly not this book. The ”I,” of course, is all about the ego. As you are about to discover, I [...]

Earth is critically in need of Deep-See thinkers. But is your worldview up to the challenge? Our Yo!Dolphin!™ assessment will help you find out

Here’s the reality: To now, developments in how we humans “do lives and do societies” can be said to have arrived in four great waves. Agriculture. Industry. Information. And the latest: Productivity and Change.
No. 4, the Wave of Productivity and Change, was to involve converging technologies such as bioengineering, nanotechnology, macro-robotics, machine cognition, exotic [...]

we’ve been doing some ‘memory lane’ stuff around the office. Here are some old promo images we’d forgotten but always liked a lot

By the way, the links in those images don’t work, but here’s one that does. For more information on BTC’s BrainMap(R) assessment tool, go here.

Visiting the reject pile: Some things I said, and don’t mind saying again, that were left out of LEAP!

I never write “a” book. In the two years or so I’m at the task of producing a new work, I write the equivalent of several books. Write and cull, write and cull. The false starts and other anomalies that don’t seem to get me where I want to go at the time are cut [...]

IF YOUR MIND IS FEELING IN OVERLOAD, IT MAY BE BECAUSE IT IS SUDDENLY SEEING TOO MUCH, NOT UNDERSTANDING TOO LITTLE

None of us sees the world as “it is,” therefore; we can only see the world that we think. If we can’t think it, then what it is that we can’t see doesn’t exist for us at all. At least, not yet.
Herein lies the dolphin thinker’s difficult-to-explain advantage. From the dolphin perspective, you can potentially [...]

Because life runs up, not down, syntropy is a cosmic kitchen, not a cosmic wrecking yard. But we have to scramble to keep up.

At this hour, the world now stands on the verge of yet another great technological revolution. It has been mainly been gathering steam since the 1980s. Each day brings us closer to a time when a Star Trek-like economy may be possible. In fact, as the days go by and the breakthroughs and advances pile [...]

When he first envisioned the leap: how the late Clare Graves saw sense where so many before had seen only nonsense

On a fall day in 1961, in his classroom at Union College in Schenectady, New York, the late Dr. Clare W. Graves hurried to a blackboard. Writing as fast as he could, he jotted down the rudiments of an explanation both for conundrums that had been plaguing his own research and for the fundamental confusions [...]
