Ted Falconar on 'Non-Aristotelian Thinking (Nous)' in Creative Intelligence and Self-Liberation (2000)

“Creative scientists know very well from observation of themselves, that all creative work starts as ‘feeling’, ‘inclination’, ‘suspicion’, ‘hunch’, or some other unspeakable affective state, which only at a later date, after a sort of nursing, takes the shape of a verbal expression worked out later in a rationalised, coherent, linguistic scheme called a theorem.” (Korzybski in Falconar, p.3)

“When we use creative thought we become one with reality – then we find a wonderland that is always mysterious and exciting.” (p.10) 

“A creative person can be likened to an explorer of the real world who takes with them the minimum of baggage.” (p.10)

Osho in Creativity: Unleashing the forces within (1999)

“To bring intelligence into activity you don’t need more information, you need more mediation. You need to become more silence, you need to become more thoughtless. You need to become less mind and more heart.” (p.88)

“Life is not a philosophical problem, it is a religious mystery. Then anything can become the door – even cleaning the floor. If you can do it creatively, lovingly, totally, you will have some taste of life.” (p.108)

“Nirvana is to live the ordinary life so alert, so full of consciousness, so full of light, that everything becomes luminous. It is possible.” (p.129)
