Thinking Style 


If you read my last post, you either chose to collaborate in the conceptual art I'm creating, or you chose to observe.

You can collaborate by trying to imagine the conceptual picture I'm trying to 'paint', and by trying to discover how the picture you're seeing is [different from / same as] the picture I'm seeing.

EXERCISE

What was your first impression of the previous excerpt from the scifi novel I'm writing?

Re-read it if necessary, then choose one of the following statements that best describes your first impression:
  1. It was [crap / brilliant].
  2. Renice must be [crazy / high].
  3. I was [bored or confused / intrigued or enlightened].
Remember the number. In my next post, I'll tell you in which audience set I'm imagining you. In the meantime, here's one of my favorite M.C. Esher drawings to consider:

By the way, happy spring! or, if you use a lunisolar calendar, happy NEW YEAR!
