Embodied Imagination Training

How to learn to imagine but also to synthesise and prototype, all in one experience?

YAML [編輯]

I see imagination as a tool to raise consciousness, because what I imagine brings me on the journey, I learn from this journey, I evolve as a person. This puzzle is an invitation to play with the thought that an entire humanity could raise to a higher consciousness through embodied imagination, i.e. when new worlds are created in our individual minds (zoom out) but also when our bodies follow the mind and create these worlds in reality (zoom in).

What conditions are needed for Imagination, Synthesis, Prototyping to happen?

  1. Space - doing nothing, walking, wandering, daydreaming, flow states

  2. Pause - reflecting, writing, sketching, noticing things, observing, formulating questions or problem statements

  3. Mess - experimenting, thinking small, playing, doing, asking for feedback

If you were to teach someone to imagine and create something from nothing, how would you do it? Share examples. And let's discover experiences to help people learn to imagine what's not there yet and bring ideas to life.

// 如果你要教某人從無到有想象和創造一些東西,你會怎麼做?

“想象、合成、原型”——在技術上等同於:

計算機可以做的所有這些事情,我認爲人工智能也能做。然而,當談到學習時,這意味着,例如,“想象”部分——是高度依賴於它的初始條件(原始經驗和與環境的獨特組合)的部分。想象者所在的實體(一個僞隨機過程)。

他們說——把合適的人帶到合適的地方,他們會創造奇蹟。我認爲,想象力不是可以教授的,而是可以滋養的——可能有各種因素,比如飲食、活動、交流(問題!)、關於如何選擇合適的人和地點來激發想象力的啓發式等等。

你所說的——“空間、暫停、混亂”——可能只是生活中的自然現象:探索、放鬆、參與。誰知道呢,也許他們會聯想到那些 beta, alpha, theta 腦電波,如何改變這些狀態的方法可以重新用於這個集成過程。例如,可能是淋浴、坐​​火車、看風景,使人進入特定的腦電波狀態,然後不同的其他刺激使他們進入其他心智狀態。

"imagine, synthesize, prototype" -- is technically equivalent to:

All these things computers can do, and so, I think, the AI will be able to do. However, when it comes to learning, then, what this means, is that, for example, "imagine" part -- is the one that is highly-dependent on the initial conditions (the original experience and unique combination with environment) of that entity (a pseudo-random process) that the imaginator is.

They say -- bring the right people in the right place, and they will create magic. I think, imagination is not teach-able, but nourish-able -- there can be various factors, like eating, activities, communications (questions!), heuristics on how to select the right people and places to spark imagination, etc.

What you call -- "space, pause, mess" -- is probably just natural occurrences in life: explore, relax, engage. Who knows, maybe they associate with those beta, alpha, theta brain waves, the methodology how to change these states could be re-used for this integrative process. For example, it may be that shower, and riding on the trains, seeing landscapes, puts people into a specific brain-waves state, and then different other stimuli put them into other states of mind.

我想知道單獨的想象力。想象力怎麼會發生在我們自己身上?向內潛入並開始質疑和探索需要什麼刺激?因爲人也是一個生命系統,一直在與自己的思想和環境互動(即使沒有一羣人)。

//“想象”部分——高度依賴於想象者所在實體(一個僞隨機過程)的初始條件(原始經驗和與環境的獨特組合)。

是的。 “認識你自己”仍然是正確的。深入個人解決過去挑戰的旅程可以激發想象力。重新連接一個人的根以激發果實。

在我的工作中,我還注意到合成和原型設計對於不在技術或設計領域工作的人來說既困難又新鮮。解決這些步驟(如何教授這些技能)與想象力訓練同等重要。

我分享這個謎題 id 的原因是因爲我從事教育/學習促進工作。所以我有興趣討論這種“具身想象力訓練”的例子並讓它變得更好——即討論那些對人類發展或培養想象力的活動(教學、輔導、諮詢、知識轉移、發展、等)做或想做培養想象者的活動,然後看看有沒有一些通用的模式,可以作爲一個想象,作爲一個可以解釋和與人分享的過程模板。有一個“精益畫布”模板可以快速進行業務規劃。我對“夢想世界和原型”模板很感興趣。通過這種方式,即使無法接觸顧問的人,也可以學會想象夢想世界並將其變爲現實。

在考慮世界上的不平等和貧困時,這(對我而言)很重要。我的假設是,如果更多的人學會想象和創造夢想世界,這個世界會同時在許多地方升起。

// They say -- bring the right people in the right place, and they will create magic.

I wonder about solo imagination. How can imagination happen on our own? What stimuli is needed to dive inward and start questioning and exploring? Because a human is a living system too, interacting with one's thoughts and environment all the time already (even without a group of people).

// "imagine" part -- is the one that is highly-dependent on the initial conditions (the original experience and unique combination with environment) of that entity (a pseudo-random process) that the imaginator is.

Yes sure. "Know yourself" is still true. Diving into one's personal journey to resolve past challenges can spark imagination. Reconnecting with one's roots to spark fruits.

With my work, I also notice that Synthesis and Prototyping is hard and new for people who dont work in technology or design sectors. Addressing these steps (how to teach these skills) is equally important as imagination training.

The reason I shared this puzzle id because I do work in education/learning facilitation. And so I'm interested to discuss Examples of such "embodied imagination training" and make it better - i.e. discuss how people who also are interested in human development or the activity of nurturing imaginators (teaching, coaching, consulting, knowledge transfer, development, etc) do it or would like to do the activity of nurture imaginators, and then seeing if there are some general patterns, that can be used as a Imagination as a process template that can be explained and shared with people. There is a "lean canvas" template for business planning rapidly. I'm interested in "dream worlds and prototype" template. This way people who even dont have access to consultants, could learn to imagine dream worlds and make it a reality.

This is important (for me) when thinking about inequality and poverty in the world. My assumption is, if more people learn to imagine dream worlds and create, the world would lift up in many places at once.


我的一個朋友正在研究 Cohado Philosophy 和基於此的遊戲,據說“一個人看不到自己,需要一個鏡子”。所以這讓我覺得在創意之旅中擁有鏡像合作者是多麼重要。

A friend of mine is working on Cohado Philosophy and a game based on that, where it's said that "one cannot see themselves and a need a mirror". So this makes me think how important is to have mirrors-collaborators in the journey of creativity.
