Embodied Imagination Training

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

YAML [编辑]

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.

我的一个朋友正在研究 Cohado Philosophy 和基于此的游戏,据说“一个人看不到自己,需要一个镜子”。所以这让我觉得在创意之旅中拥有镜像合作者是多么重要。

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.


// 他们说——把合适的人带到合适的地方,他们会创造魔法。

我想知道单独的想象力。想象力怎么会发生在我们自己身上?向内潜入并开始质疑和探索需要什么刺激?因为人也是一个生命系统,一直在与自己的思想和环境互动(即使没有一群人)。

//“想象”部分——高度依赖于想象者所在实体(一个伪随机过程)的初始条件(原始经验和与环境的独特组合)。

是的。 “认识你自己”仍然是正确的。深入个人解决过去挑战的旅程可以激发想象力。重新连接一个人的根以激发果实。

在我的工作中,我还注意到合成和原型设计对于不在技术或设计领域工作的人来说既困难又新鲜。解决这些步骤(如何教授这些技能)与想象力训练同等重要。

我分享这个谜题 id 的原因是因为我从事教育/学习促进工作。所以我有兴趣讨论这种“具身想象力训练”的例子并让它变得更好——即讨论那些对人类发展或培养想象力的活动(教学、辅导、咨询、知识转移、发展、等)做或想做培养想象者的活动,然后看看有没有一些通用的模式,可以作为一个想象,作为一个可以解释和与人分享的过程模板。有一个“精益画布”模板可以快速进行业务规划。我对“梦想世界和原型”模板很感兴趣。通过这种方式,即使无法接触顾问的人,也可以学会想象梦想世界并将其变为现实。

在考虑世界上的不平等和贫困时,这(对我而言)很重要。我的假设是,如果更多的人学会想象和创造梦想世界,这个世界会同时在许多地方升起。

// 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.


// 如果你要教某人从无到有想象和创造一些东西,你会怎么做?

“想象、合成、原型”——在技术上等同于:

计算机可以做的所有这些事情,我认为人工智能也能做。然而,当谈到学习时,这意味着,例如,“想象”部分——是高度依赖于它的初始条件(原始经验和与环境的独特组合)的部分。想象者所在的实体(一个伪随机过程)。

他们说——把合适的人带到合适的地方,他们会创造奇迹。我认为,想象力不是可以教授的,而是可以滋养的——可能有各种因素,比如饮食、活动、交流(问题!)、关于如何选择合适的人和地点来激发想象力的启发式等等。

你所说的——“空间、暂停、混乱”——可能只是生活中的自然现象:探索、放松、参与。谁知道呢,也许他们会联想到那些 beta, alpha, theta 脑电波,如何改变这些状态的方法可以重新用于这个集成过程。例如,可能是淋浴、坐​​火车、看风景,使人进入特定的脑电波状态,然后不同的其他刺激使他们进入其他心智状态。

// If you were to teach someone to imagine and create something from nothing, how would you do it?

"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.
