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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
If you’ve never scouted up a copy of my book, The Mother of All Minds: Leaping Free of an Outdated Human Nature, here is how it begins:

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
