In this revised edition of Creative Intelligence and Self-Liberation: Korzybski, Non-Aristotelian Thinking and Enlightenment Ted Falconar has written a comprehensive new introduction and provided additional work on enlightenment and visualisation throughout the book.
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.
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.
