Creative Intelligence
By Ted Falconar

Albert Einstein thought in an entirely different way from ordinary people, and the theorist Alfred Korzybski wanted to know why. Studying Einstein's unique thought processes in his extensive study Science and Sanity, he explained and explored this genius way of thinking, and named it, simply, 'Nous'. Nous involves seeing events as they really are, and not as they are presented to us through the illusion of words and memory. It stresses how no one thing is like anything else - that even two pins are never the same; and that the word can never contain what it names. Creative Intelligence extends Korzybski's concept of Nous by weaving into its fabric insights from Eastern philosophies. Introducing us to Realization (the seeing of reality) and Liberation (the aim of life), it teaches us, step-by-step, to 'unlearn' Aristotelian learning, that rigid pattern of thought that we are indoctrinated with from birth and to escape the confines of memory, association and, most importantly, words. Reading this exposition of Nous, we learn how it even forms the basis of many aspects of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) that other radical system for re-thinking the self. We discover how Nous is vital to human progress how it fuels invention and solves problems and we realise its potential to overcome the distorted materialism that defines us. One of the most important studies of creativity ever written, Creative Intelligence guides us towards a state of pure creative intelligence, communicating the very secret of creativity. Written for teachers, trainers, therapists and principally the curious individual, this book enables us to achieve the main goal of existence, Self Liberation.
