My Mom sent me the link for this Insight Course. I am only on the 1st of 21 lessons so far..but enjoying it so far. The foreword is interesting - about fluid vs static intelligence and about transparency or openness.
"Fluid intelligence has little to do with IQ or "book" intelligence. It is rather the ability to step outside of our beliefs and consider information which does not fit into our previously accepted view of reality. .. At the other end of the spectrum from fluid intelligence is static intelligence. If an individual is rarely willing to reconsider or challenge their established beliefs, they are said to have a high degree of static intelligence. They aren't much interested in thinking outside of the box."
"Scientists with a high degree of fluid intelligence who are attracted to study matters outside the current paradigm are often labeled kooks or wacky by those operating with static intelligence." & yet, we all know whos coming up with the great ideas in life!! - Einstein, Pasteur, Tesla, Galileo..
I enjoyed this video - Its a Perception Test
"..the more transparent we are to ourselves and to the world around us, the more consciously we can make choices. And the more fluid we are in expanding our intelligence and beliefs, the more powerfully we can adapt to and make good use of the changes that occur in our lives and world...
Let us then choose to be open, transparent, and fluid both with ourselves and with each other, and to offer support for the limitless possibilities of growth and expansion which lie within each one of us. "
