We are born creative geniuses
Our natural creative genius is stifled from birth.
Awaken your inner 5 year old

Scientific tests confirm repeatedly that the education system dumbs us down.
At TEDxTucson, Dr. George Land disclosed the shocking result of a creativity test developed for NASA and subsequently used to test school children.
NASA contacted Dr. Land and Beth Jarman to develop a highly specialized test to effectively measure the creative potential of NASA’s rocket scientists and engineers. The test was successful for NASA’s purposes however the scientists were left with a few questions:
Where does creativity come from? Are some people born with it or is it learned? Or does it come from our experience? The scientists then gave the test to 1,600 children between the ages of 4 and 5. What they found shocked them.
This test looks at the ability to come up with new, different, and innovative ideas to problems. What percentage of those children do you think fell in the genius category of imagination? A full 98 percent!
THEY KNOW EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING! RESIST. USE HOME SCHOOL. STUDENT DIRECTED LEARNING.
We promise it works. Check out John Taylor Gatto for ideas, inspiration books and YouTube videos. After teaching for nearly 30 years he authored several books on modern education, criticizing its ideology, history, and consequences. 13:06 mins
We need to find our five-year-old again b/c our capability as a five-year-old never goes away. That part of our brain that produces this wonderful imagination is something we exercise every day when we’re dreaming.
To create a meaningful future requires individuals to discover how our internal systems work and learn to master them. With practice the possibility exists to be in that 98% genius category again.
There are 2 kinds of thinking
Divergent is your imagination generating new possibilities. Convergent is when we’re making judgements, criticizing, testing something. Divergent is like an accelerator. Convergent is like the brake.
Try this exercise
Pick up a table fork, call forth your five year old and come up with 25 or 30 ideas on how to improve that table fork. This exercises the part of our brain to become the great innovator of a wonderful path forward.
The rewards of being authentic are priceless
