How to Live in Harmony with Nature


click here to read more

When looking at the grand design of the earth, one might wonder how well humans actually fit into the overall picture. Do humans tend to live in harmony with nature or against it? And, what does it even mean to live in harmony with nature in the first place?

To live in harmony with nature means to observe, learn, and live in the way that things naturally occur. It means to trust in and live by the natural processes of the Earth, rather than to modify or alter them.

Oftentimes, the demands from consumers, along with a need to produce a product quickly to make a profit means that conventional farming generally goes against nature instead of with it. Learning ways to coexist with the animals and elements around you can naturally help you to live in harmony with nature.

A Real Life Example

While we were still deep in the midst of planning out our homestead dreams, we spent a lot of time watching different YouTube videos and channels, gaining inspiration. But it was actually a DVD that was given to my son for Christmas that made one of the biggest impacts on my husband and me in terms of how to live in harmony with nature. The movie, The Biggest Little Farm, is a documentary sharing the story of John and Molly Chester as they built up their regenerative farm in California. With beautiful shots of Mother Nature and their farm, and a relatable story much like the dream that we held, it was a story that pulled us in and spoke to our souls.

The Biggest Little Farm

What we learned from this video is that everything is connected in a really big way beyond our understanding. Mother Nature is designed perfectly to be in balance, and everything has a purpose. Pests, predators, plants, and weeds; it all plays an important role in the natural ecosystem relationships that make up our Earth.

One of the biggest lessons that we took away from this documentary was learning what to do when things went wrong. John and Molly had a mentor, Alan York, who helped as they learned to live in harmony with nature. His advice when things went wrong: Step back and observe. How does Mother Nature handle the issue? Because truly, Mother Nature does have something in place, almost always, to keep everything in balance and harmony.

Everything is Connected

Everything on this Earth serves some type of purpose. Even the most annoying or tiny animals and plants play a role in keeping everything balanced in nature. Mosquitoes, for example, seem pointless and irritating to us as humans. Yet, they serve as an incredibly important part of the food chain. Without them, many other species like birds, bats, frogs, fish- and even some plants- would suffer.

In the documentary The Biggest Little Farm, John and Molly became immersed in nature. With this immersion came struggle. Coyotes killed their chickens constantly. Gophers and snails destroyed their peach trees, and the fruit that was produced was eaten by birds. It would be easy to give up and quit, to spray with pesticides, and to shoot and kill the predators.

But John and Molly chose to live in harmony with nature, and step back and observe. They came to realize that ducks love snails, and so, they released the ducks into their orchard. They built owl houses, and soon, owls came to hunt for the gophers and birds that had been destroying their fruit trees. And one day, John found a paralyzed coyote that had broken its back while chasing a gopher along a fence line. The coyote, the same species that had devastated their chickens, was also helping to lower the gopher population.

Everything has a purpose. To live in harmony with nature means to find everything’s purpose and use it to your advantage.

How to Recognize Connections

When you have a problem occur on your homestead, take a step back and observe. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How would nature handle the problem?
  • What purposes do the problems contribute to the overall ecosystem?
  • What can I do naturally to help combat this problem?

We’ve had a fox hanging out around our yard quite a bit. We’d been seeing the tracks all winter, but now, the fox itself has been presenting itself during daylight hours.

One morning after chores were done, we noticed the fox across the pasture. It was close enough to the house to make us cautious for our free range chickens who pecked around, unaware.

“Do you want me to shoot it?” my husband asked. We stepped back and watched.

The fox playfully rolled around on its back, but then got down to business. It walked across the top of the snow, stopped, and jumped high into the air. He was catching mice.

Mice had been an issue for us for a while here. There were so many and they were into everything. Our potatoes and tomatoes were covered in holes. They were in the chicken coop eating feed. In the barn. Even in my husband’s truck, which cost us a lot of money to repair.

But this winter? We haven’t seen more than one or two.

Perhaps the fox had something to do with it. Maybe his presence is helping to balance the problem of the overabundance of mice.

“Let’s just see how things go.” I answered my husband. As long as the fox isn’t directly hurting our flock, he’s serving our homestead too by helping us with the mice population.

Natural Solutions to Common Pests

Working with Mother Nature is always a balancing act. Too much of anything is never a good thing. It’s always important to keep this in mind when trying to find solutions so that you can live in harmony with nature.

In rural areas, some animals or plants are more pesky than others. They can cause devastation to gardens, crops, and even equipment (like the mice). So how can you naturally deter these animals or plants from destroying everything you’ve worked for?

Search for Natural Enemies and Attract Them

In the garden, consider planting beneficial flowers amongst your vegetables to attract predatory insects that can help keep pests at bay.

Flies come with owning cows. Consider pasturing your chickens with the cows, feeding them on the cow’s manure. The chickens will scratch the cow manure pile apart and eat the fly larvae, lessening the amount of flies you’ll see on your homestead.

Mice and squirrels are a common nuisance on homesteads and often look for an easy meal. Building owl houses near your garden to attract these predatory birds can help combat the issue. Just make sure you don’t attract them too close to your chicken coop!

Deer can be burdens to farmers, and we ourselves have struggled with these animals as well. Deer have broken into our hay storage and eaten many dollars worth of valuable hay that was intended for our cows. We’ve been able to keep them out of the garden with a 6 foot fence that has a strand of barb wire another foot higher. Adding a dog to your property can also help keep deer away at night.

Hawks can be notorious for hunting down chickens. Consider attracting crows to your property as a natural defender. Crows hate hawks and eagles, as they recognize the danger they pose to their own eggs and young. They will often come together to force hawks and eagles out of an area to protect their own. And while crows can potentially be predators themselves to chickens, they most likely will leave them alone while keeping the hawks and eagles away too.

Observing Nature

The biggest way you can live in harmony with nature is to watch and learn from it. Nature has lots to offer and teach if we can learn to listen. So often, humans seem to think nature is here to serve and benefit us, when in reality, we are just a small part of a larger system.

When trying to live in harmony with nature, listen and see what nature can teach you. Nature teaches us how to behave. Notice how the leaves remain on the ground when they fall from the tree? There is purpose for it. See the importance of water to the animals? We should value it as such too. Notice how there is no hurry in nature- everything grows at its own pace and in its own time. See the plants that grow naturally together? There is a reason they have thrived in that spot. There are lots of lessons for behavior that we can learn by observing the natural processes of the Earth; we just have to listen.

Expert Author Johnna ShryackThe morning dew illuminates the colors of the earth, magnifying the intensity of each hue to its most vibrant and purest form. The luminous rays of the sun upon the moist blades of grass and the gently opened pedals bring life to a resting meadow. Darkness has been replaced with a soft color palate for all to enjoy. A gentle breeze breaths life and movement into this awaking valley, as a chorus of plants swaying to and fro release their aromatic aroma into the morning.

This orchestra of nature awaking each day, reminds us of the peaceful simplicity that surrounds us on this earth plane. One, who lives in accordance to this song of nature, is one who moves through life in harmony and balance. Present only in the moment, approaching each path in a gentle and kind way, accepting the lesson to be learned and appreciating the opportunity to be present and a part of this grand design.

Just as the pedals open each morning, greeting the day and absorbing the sunshine, so should do our hearts open with appreciation and acceptance of the glorious energy set free by this boundless beauty. Absorbing the pure positive energy released from the eternal spirit to energize and renew our hearts, mind and bodies.

The dew glistens only for a short time before being absorbed back into the atmosphere. Opportunities are ours but a short time before they too are absorbed back into energy for another. With this cycle in nature, the plants will return to the earth, only to be the food source for another to show its beauty in the morning dew.

We have a choice to renew our energy through spirit or we too are destined to return to the earth plane to repeat the process of reaching our beauty in our higher self. As the sun sets on this peaceful piece of the earth plane, we hold the knowing of a new a glorious orchestra of color for another day; but what of our souls and their knowing. Have we absorbed the beautiful energy presented by spirit to orchestrate our own chorus of life?

The eldest of three children, I was raised in a christian home in rural Illinois. A college graduate, I chose a career path in the medical field. Married and divorced, I guided two children to adulthood. From a very early age I have known of a strong spiritual presence in my life and I feel privileged to share their guidance.

Knowledge is power
and LIFE.

The Source of All Good Things
click here to read more

“When you expect anyone to meet a need that only God can fulfill you are setting yourself up for disappointment and bitterness. No one can meet all of your needs except God.”

Rick Warren

Many times we experience unresolved inner conflict because we emotionally draw from a well of shallow resources. This inner conflict sometimes results from looking to those we are in relationship with to fill certain voids. Whether it was intentional or unintentional in most occasions, it does not end well.

I’ve been in relationships that started out really good but ended with me feeling lost and depleted. In the beginning, I believed that God gave those relationships space in my life for the season that I was in at the time to help me grow. The issue evolved when my focus changed and gave those relationship complete rule over my heart. I’d developed a longing for consistency from inconsistent sources. I lost sight of the true source of my fulfillment which is God.

If you ever reach that point, you must stop and self evaluate for a moment. Ask yourself a few hard questions…

  • What am I feeling?

  • Why I am I feeling like this?

  • What am I longing for that I may not be getting from this person or thing?

  • Do I have misplaced expectations for this relationship?

If you can honestly answer those questions, I encourage you to present those answers to God in prayer. He is the source of all good things. Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Earthly relationships, careers, money, achievements can all be good sources of happiness but they are all temporal. God is eternal. He is the source of everlasting joy [Isaiah 51:11]. He is the source of peace that supersedes our understanding, guarding our hearts and minds [Philippians 4:7].

Give God access to your heart. Give him permission to expose those areas of bitterness and disappointment so that healing can begin. When you realize and rest in the truth that all you need is in Him, your life and relationships will be healthier and fulfilling as God intended.

Psalm 100:5 “For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.”


Heavenly Father, I choose to look to you, the source of all my needs. Help me to see you for who you are with clarity and confidence. You are not only my provider, you are my provision. There are many things that contend for my dependency but I declare today that you are more than enough. You know what I need and that supersedes my wants. I choose to seek first your kingdom from which everlasting joy flows. Lord you are good, your love endures for ever, and your faithfulness continues through all generations. In Jesus name I pray, Amen!

Tools Of Love
click here to read more

The tools of love are in fact the tools for change. We can not bring about any change, with in ourselves or around us, unless it is genuinely backed up by Love.

Love is the will to grow ourselves Spiritually and mentally.  Thus to start loving some one begins with loving ourselves first.

Through out my writings, when ever I have used the word love, I have used it with the four senses and meanings or tools which it contains. I therefore am not referring to the love from romance literature or Holly Wood movies when I speak of love.

We grow ourselves through the four tools of love.  Love is the energy with which we use the following four tools in our lives.

Thus if any of the four tools is absent, we can question the genuineness of Love. In a sense, these can also be called the 4 test signs of Love!

Thus to change your self to a higher level, follow the four simple themes. They are not new. They are perhaps as old as the humanity. The key, however is to follow them in total and absolute commitment to yourself to change.

I promise you would change because I have.

The First Tool:

To Love ourselves first we have to be willing to assume and accept one hundred percent responsibility. We have to accept that what ever we are, what ever we are getting in life and how so ever we are spending our lives is determined by us and us alone. i.e. we are responsible.

There are two signs of not accepting the responsibility: blaming and complaining. If we are either blaming others or full of complaints about life and whatever life has to offer to us, we are in fact not being very responsible.

Accepting responsibility means, we created our results in life and only we can re-create them. In re-creating we have to face the pain and go through an effort.

Going through this effort nurtures our spirit and grows us mentally. By not accepting our responsibility, we refuse to grow. We show ourselves that we do not think ourselves worthy of growth and nurturing.

We act non-lovingly.  We act non-responsibly.

Step to do: Just repeat this to yourself 5 times: No blames, No complaints. And commit to yourself to never blame or complain again in life.  Ever!

The Second Tool:

Being able to truly love ourselves involves delaying gratification.

This can be best explained by the experiment conducted with children aged 4 to 6 at Stanford University in 1972.  They were offered marshmallows on a condition. Those children who would eat it right now, would get only one. Those who would chose to eat 30 minutes later would get two. Those who would choose to eat after an hour would get three.

Majority of the children chose to eat now. A little less opted for half an hour wait and further less number of children opted for wait for a full hour.

Years later studying the careers of the children, was discovered that those who were able to delay or defer the gratification had achieved a significantly higher level of success in their career.

Delaying gratification would thus mean postponing instant relief and joy for a much higher cause.

For that first, we have to have a higher cause; a direction or a destiny which we want to achieve. It is a fact that people with aimless lives are not able to exercise delaying gratifications and they can fall for any thing that brings instant joy to their five senses.

We face countless situations in our daily life, where we have to delay our gratification.

There always exists a deferred achievement and an instant gratification for every emotion we feel.  The gratification for anger for example is to take it out, immediately, instantly, with all the frustration on the person whom you think is responsible.  Yet there is a higher achievement reward if we chose to delay our bursting out. It is a high mutual trust, respect and strengthened bond between us and the  person involved.

The gratification for a news paper reading is that no one disturbs us but if our 4 year old kid comes to us with a drawing book, we have to delay our gratification and attend to the child. For a higher reward of bond, love and value.

Step to do: Despite all the lazy day and a dull mood and a grey sullen sky, chose to do the difficult task first. Choose the hard nut to crack first. Begin with the hardest problem. Begin by taking a small step towards the hardest problem. Begin!

The Third Tool:

is observing and succumbing ourselves to Truth.

We have to be determined in its purest sense to bow our heads down before the truth, no matter what it is  or how much does it go against our benefits or previous beliefs or against how we have been handling things previously.

We may have been believing some thing for years and suddenly find out that we were wrong; if we truly love ourselves, we have to accept the truth.

Truth some times is like a tree outside our house, but we often do not know what tree is it or how many branches its’ stem spreads into? Or in many cases, we do not know if a tree is there or not?

If we are not able to do that, we clearly do not love ourselves. We love our egos. We love to keep our head high and believe and make others believe that we were right, but in side deep down of ourselves,  we would know that our size has shrunk.

Step to do: Every single night before retiring to bed. Think about the tasks that you did not do out of laziness. Think about all day that you spent. Think about every important task you did or you could not do. Think about the time that you let go waste. Think that you could have been wrong. Think that you could have accepted a fact, which you did not.

Just keep on doing that. Even if this exercise does not make you take an immediate action, gradually it shall pull you up for taking an action. Taking an action against mental laziness or sticking to your past or to things.

Do not take this exercise as light. Just keep on doing it. It would sow the seeds of transformation, that would germinate into seedlings when the right time comes.

The Fourth Tool:

Keeping  a balance. We tend to lose balance at times. We cannot judge how much time we are supposed to give to our work and to our kids. We lose how much important people are some times as compared to the new promises made to keep a routine and that routine is broken by an unannounced guest.

We have to know how to keep the balance. We have to be a good athlete, a good learner / teacher, a good monk and a good farmer at the same time.

We have to keep a balance between work and personal Life.

We have to keep a balance between physical fitness,  mental and spiritual growth, contribution and financial activities or professional / business life.

Keeping the balance involves wise judgment, which at times becomes quite painful.

Balancing also means to discipline ourselves before we try to discipline our children, subordinates or our spouse. We find our child misbehaving in front of our guests and we feel threatened at our up bringing. So we try to discipline her /him through scolding, lure or threat of being left alone. The act of disciplining has to be disciplined itself. That is called balancing.

Keeping a balance when to allow your son a toy and when not involves a great deal of wisdom. This is often painful. Our willingness to go through this pain is a sign of true love. Keeping a balance is the fourth tool, through which we exercise Love !

Step to do:

Stop considering your life into separate compartments of home, office, social or sport activity.

Rather decide to give equal time to each activity, daily. Though no matter how small the time slot may be.

Decide to take care of your health, walk back home if possible or get off the car 2 miles away and walk the distance. Decide to spend half an hour with your kids, just you and your kids. Spend time to read. Spend time in silence. Daily for ten minutes or fifteen.

Decide to be representing balance and do that. Balance out life and your roles through time. Write your roles and time spent against each role per week and balance that.

Yesss ! that’s hard work. All this is effortful, but who said it wasn’t ? But it is worth the effort.

Full HD Wide Nature Wallpapers & Images I Beautiful Nature ...The Power of Deep Thinking:
Essence of Creativity

True or False: “This sentence is false.”

What was your answer to the question above? Did you quickly fire off an answer or did you have to think about it and then think about it some more?

Imagine for a moment that you could put on a set of inverted goggles and see the world through an entirely different lens. On one hand, you would literally see differently, but you might not view the world differently. If we look deep enough and allow ourselves to observe from a new lens, we will. Thomas S. Kuhn remarked in The Structure of Scientific Revolutions,[1]

“What a man sees depends upon what he looks at and also upon what his previous visual conceptual experience has taught him to see.”

The power of deep thinking is the essence of creativity. By learning how to think differently and deep, you will find that it is not only your creative thinking, but your critical thinking skills that vastly improve. This leads to higher levels of thinking and powerful problem-solving skills that you simply did not have before.

Let’s take a look at what deep thinking is, why you should learn about it, and what it will do for you.

How Do You Know That You Know the Stuff You Think You Know?

Have you heard the saying, the more you know the less you know? If you haven’t, take a moment and think about that phrase. By looking at the Theory of Knowledge, we can pose the following question: How do you know that you know the stuff you think you know?

Let’s look at an example. Solve the following: 2 + 2 = ?

The Power of Deep Thinking: Essence of Creativity

I am hoping you answered 4! Yet, let’s take a look at another way to look at this. In Plato and Platypus Walk into a Bar by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein, we find the following story.

A western anthropologist is told by a Voohooni that 2 + 2 = 5. The anthropologist asks him how he knows this. The tribesman says,

“By counting, of course. First, I tie two knots in a cord. Then I tie two knots in another cord. When I join the two cords together, I have five knots.”

Deep Thinking Is Thinking About Thinking

Rene Descartes famously stated, “Cogito ergo sum” or “I think, therefore I am” where he believed thinking as the essential characteristic of being Human.

In Why the World Doesn’t Seem to Make Sense, Steve Hagen discussed that Descartes arrived at the cogito through an experiment in radical doubt to discover if there was anything he could be certain of; that is, anything that he could not doubt away.[2] Hagen commented,

“He started out by doubting the existence of the external world. Then he tried doubting his own existence. But doubt as he would, he kept coming up against the fact that there was a doubter. Must be himself! He could not doubt his own doubting.”


Essentially, Metacognition is awareness of one’s awareness. It is thinking about thinking or cognition about cognition.

  1. Meta means Beyond
  2. Cognition means Thinking

Thus, Metacognition means Beyond Thinking.

To be aware, it refers to the ability of the mind to stand back and watch itself in action. Here, we are able to examine the way we learn, remember, and think. The knowledge of how we process information gives us the opportunity to change how we process it. [3]

Can We Really Know What Anything Is?

Hagen poses the following question in his book Why the World Doesn’t Seem to Make Sense: Here it is, but what is it? Do we truly know what something is?

Hagen remarks,

When we try to answer this, have we merely answered the question “how do we conceive of it?” or “what do we call it?” Some deeper question remains.


For example, if I say, “Here, in this cup, is water,” you may ask, “What is water?” But as scientists we might wish to point out, “Water is hydrogen and oxygen.” Thus, by using scientific methods it seems we can discover what water is “made of.”

With confidence we say, “What is really in this cup is hydrogen and oxygen, combined and transformed into this unique substance we call ‘water’.” But the questions continue.

Hagen concludes, “What is hydrogen? What is oxygen? And so we look again, using scientific methods, and say, “Hydrogen is an element made of atoms, each consisting of a single proton and a single electron.”

But still the questions remain: what are atoms? What are protons and electrons? It seems that we’ve started on a never-ending regression. At no time do we ever really get to the other end of the question: “What is water?” We can name the mind object, even break it down and name its parts, but we still don’t really answer the question.”

Reading this passage leaves me to ask myself: can we ever really know what anything is? Let’s look at another example from Hagen.

He illustrates just how strange our world is through the conversation between a physicist and a philosopher:

Physicist: …and so we conclude an electron is a particle.

Philosopher: But you also claim an electron is a wave.

Physicist: Yes, it’s also a wave.

Philosopher: But surely, not if it’s a particle.

Physicist: We say it’s both wave and particle.

Philosopher: But that’s a contradiction, obviously.

Physicist: Are you then saying it’s neither wave nor particle?

Philosopher: No, I’m asking what you mean by “it.”

A Gap in the Stream of Consciousness

You might be wondering what the difference is between Metacognition and Cognition.

  • Cognition. This is the process of acquiring knowledge for understanding. Cognition is thinking.
  • Metacognition. This relies on awareness and control of cognitive processes. Metacognition will help you find gaps in your learning and thinking. However, you must have acquired some previous knowledge about a topic prior to Metacognition. As mentioned earlier, Metacognition goes beyond just thinking… it is thinking about thinking.

Now that you have an understanding of the fundamental principle behind deep thinking, let’s take a look at how to develop it.

In the book The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle,[4] we learn the following lessons.

Constantly Observe Your Mind Without Judging Your Thoughts

Here we should ask one simple question, “What will my next thought be?” Try it. Can you think of your next thought? Probably not.

By continually asking this question, you can delay the arrival of your next thought. This is due to what is called the quantum zeno effect, where we can freeze our current state by observing it. Essentially, there can be no change while you are watching it.

Life Is Simply a Series of Present Moments

Here we are informed that the past is simply all the present moments that have gone by. Tolle posits that the only important time is the present, for which we think about the least. Furthermore, the present is simply future present moments waiting to go by.

Imagine leaving your body and watching yourself think. Think of this as a mental movie where your goal is not to judge the actors, but to simply observe them.

Tolle refers to entering into the Now or the Present as creating a gap in the stream of mind. Asking yourself the question What will my next thought be?” creates that gap and allows you to dis-identify from your mind. Once you do this, you have elevated yourself above thought. This is Enlightenment.

Stages of Deep Thinking

Before we look at strategies you can use to become a deep thinker, let’s briefly look at the stages of deep thinking known as the Three Levels of Thought. [5]

  • Level 1: Lower Order Thinking. The individual is not reflective, has a low to mixed skill level, and relies solely on gut intuition.
  • Level 2: Higher Order Thinking. The individual is selective on what to reflect on, has a high skill level, yet lacks critical thinking vocabulary.
  • Level 3: Highest Order Thinking. The individual is explicitly reflective, has the highest skill level, and routinely uses critical thinking tools.

Strategies to Become a Deep Thinker

To enter into the Highest Order Thinking, try the following strategies.

Increase Self-Awareness by Thinking About Thinking

Imagine you could become aware of how you learn. We know that we must have a baseline of previous knowledge about something to use Metacognition. Think of your Intelligence as what you think and Metacognition as how you think. Let’s look at a series of questions you can ask yourself by using the Elements of Thought.[6]

  • Purpose. What am I trying to accomplish?
  • Questions: What question am I raising or addressing? Am I considering the complexities in the question?
  • Information: What information am I using to get to my conclusion.
  • Inferences: How did I reach this conclusion? Is there another way to interpret the information?
  • Concepts: What is the main idea? Can I explain this idea?
  • Assumptions: What am I taking for granted?
  • Implications: If someone accepted my position, what would the implications be?
  • Points of View. From what point of view am I looking at this issue? Is there another point of view I should consider?

Challenge Current Learning Methods Through Meta-Questions

Meta-Questioning is higher order questions we can use to explore ideas and problems. Here are some examples.

  • Why did it happen?
  • Why was it true?
  • How does X relate to Y?
  • Why is reasoning based on X instead of Y?
  • Are there other possibilities?

Let’s look at a practical example.

  • When you say: “I can’t do this.” Change this to: “What specifically can I not do?”
  • You say: “I can’t exercise.” Then ask: “What is stopping me?”
  • You say: “I don’t have time.” Now ask yourself: “What needs to happen for me to start exercising?”
  • You discover: “What time wasters can I eliminate in order to create more time to exercise?”
  • Then imagine how you could start exercising: “If I could exercise, how would I do it?”

View the World Through Different Lens

Here is a technique you can use to foster a deeper understanding of a problem—Four Ways of Seeing:

  • How does X view itself?
  • How does Y view itself?
  • How does X view Y?
  • How does Y view X?
The Power of Deep Thinking: Essence of Creativity

Try to apply the technique like this: suppose we are in the United States looking at a foreign country. First, draw four boxes, then list the questions. Second, start answering the questions.

  • In box #1 ask: “How do we see the United States?”
  • Box #2: “How does China see themselves?”
  • Box #3: “How does China see the United States?”
  • Box #4: “How do you see them?”

Thought Experiments

One last technique you can use to become a deep thinker —Thought Experiments. This is a device of the imagination used to investigate the nature of just about anything. [7] Thought Experiments seek to learn about reality through thinking:

  • Visualize a situation and set it up in your imagination.
  • Let it run or carry out some type of operation.
  • See what happens.
  • Draw a conclusion.

The team at Stanford describes this using the following example: Since the time of Lucretius, we’ve learned how to conceptualize space so that it is both finite and unbounded. Let’s see how this Thought Experiment can work.

  • Imagine a circle, which is a one-dimensional space.
  • As we move around, there is no edge, but it is nevertheless finite.
  • What can you conclude? The universe might be a three-dimensional version of this topology.

Think Deep, and You Will Think Creatively

Thinking deep will change how you think, feel, and view the world. When you understand this concept, you will start to think beyond simple beliefs.

“When the root is Deep… There is no reason to fear the wind.”

Deep Thinking will change how you think, feel, and view the world. When you understand this concept, you will start to think beyond simple beliefs.

By applying all the skills mentioned in this article, you will be able to think deeper and explore more possibilities.
