The Time Machine Thought Experiment

Episode Three: Thought Experiments to Stimulate Creativity: The Time Machine

The Time Machine Thought Experiment



I recently wrote a "meta post" consolidating instructions for 4 Thought Experiments for creativity I am familiar with: 4 Thought Experiments to Enhance Creativity.

Since these types of mental journeys lend themselves well to the podcast format, I asked my wife what her favorite was out of the four, and she said "The Time Machine!". So it's unanimous :) hence this episode as a deeper dive into the Time Machine Thought Experiment. It expands on it, while providing the greater ease of an audio walk-through of the process.

The Time Machine Thought Experiment

You can consider this episode as a guided tour to your personal timeline and how to discover special achievements there as well as place new ones on it.

This is not my video below, but it might be a good warm-up for the podcast...



Mental Training in Fitness and Lifestyle Management

In this episode, I also give some personal history that explains how Gregory Bateson*, Milton Erickson, Richard Bandler, and a US Olympic Team training Sports Psychologist all influenced the programming of a chain of personal fitness studios ... that were also the testing grounds for performance coaching methods that now also serve well for coaching-consulting for Strategic Thought Leadership.
