Review of the Power of Range

September 30th, 2022

What I label as expanding ranges science might reference as diversifying.  Research indicates that an experience outside the realm of “normality” may help people see the world in multiple ways.  “Cognitive flexibility” is needed for coming up with creative ideas.  An upbeat mood can apparently turn a once familiar idea, and even a confusing idea, into a very interesting idea.  Novelty is threatening only when people are in a defensive state of mind (polarized).  By rebranding failure and confusion as merely lacking diversity can alter emotional attitude toward uncertainty (an influence). 

People that are bilingual have an advantage for creativity.  They experience the world from two distinct forms of reference.  And immigrants demonstrate greater upward mobility here in the US than citizens that have similar cultural background but have been here for generations.  Tons of indicators for the advantage to broader ranges.  Keep reading novel topics and exploring range so you may avoid the pitfalls of polarization.

Parts of your brain function similar to today’s computers.  Initiate a question or topic and it uploads responses (intuition, sub-conscious programs, etc.).  But other parts of our brain have a network that cross-indexes or integrates.  Here the responses may be innovative and creative concepts.  Could be, at least, the structural component to what we refer to as intelligence or consciousness.  Marcello Massimini, Giulio Tononi and a world-wide group of researchers have put together the Integrated Information Theory (IIT).  I see this as a strong component here to support being a global individual.  Check out their little book, Sizing Up Consciousness, and build some intriguing range.

As many of you may recall, I see phenomena as a separate stream of the energy of life with elements that are not logical by design.  In fact, range is one of the gateways to access phonological experience.  For example, most folks believe knowing everything about a subject makes you an expert.  That is true for a limited time.  Research proves that a highly knowledgeable person with a diverse range of skills maintains their level of mastery for a longer period of time.  It offers perhaps a broader stroke of energy to sustain the level of skill longer.  In our logical system, not all things are possible.  Everything has to conform to logical structure.  Therefore, the range of all possible is not logical but would be a phenomenon.  

The basic premise of the scientific method is that nature is objective and not projective.  Perhaps originated from the ancient Greek requirement that a concept in math science had to produce a proof to be a truth.  Today’s quantum physics with all its uncertainty and entanglement is seen as logical because we can calculate a range for the uncertainty, of course employing imaginary numbers.  But people praying (imagining the possibility) for a friend to recover from illness is not a logical influence.  Not part of scientific method but a phenomenon that folk who bear witness believe as a truth.  You may avoid this offer to polarize (define one view as correct) if you consider the presence of two different ranges or systems where only one is logical.  My creative ideas are not mostly logical but after I tumble them around for a time a few mature as good practical logical solutions.  I believe creativity is birthed in the phenomena range or system but that is not logical; or it could transform into one of those missing logical puzzle pieces.  What is possible?
