HOW AND WHY PEOPLE HAVE ORIGINAL LIFE CHANGING IDEAS THAT CHANGE THE WORLD, AND HOW YOU CAN HAVE THEM TOO.
Why do some people have original brilliant ideas, which move the game forward for all of humanity, while others live lives of quiet imitation? What is the secret anatomy of innovation and originality?
In this groundbreaking new book, Arjuna Ardagh (author of the #1 national bestseller “The Translucent Revolution” and eight other books) offers us a compelling and practical model for the hidden components which together make up a brilliant life.
Ardagh put this book together based on more than 15 years of interviews with more than 420 scientists, artists, musicians, inventors and social architects.
RADICAL BRILLIANCE OFFERS A COMPREHENSIVE MODEL FOR HOW AND WHY PEOPLE HAVE ORIGINAL IDEAS WHICH CHANGE THE GAME FOR EVERYONE. THE BRILLIANCE CYCLE EXPLAINS FOUR VERY DIFFERENT KINDS OF SUBJECTIVE EXPERIENCE, ACTIVITY, AND BRAIN WAVE FUNCTIONING, WHICH RARELY COEXIST IN A HUMAN LIFE.
These are experiences of expansive consciousness, when the sense of a localized me recedes and there is a knowing of consciousness without limits. This is associated with higher activity of serotonin in the neuro-synapses.
This is where things get done. We learn to operate within the constraints of deadlines, budgets, agreements and we have to make responsible choices for which we are liable for the consequences. Although fueled by testosterone in men and oxytocin in women this phase is primarily associated with the neurotransmitter noradrenaline.
This is when new and original ideas are rushing through you in a seemingly effortless way. Think of the artist up all night painting, the writer caught in “automatic writing”, the inventor or the CEO who transforms the culture of a company. This phase is associated with the neurotransmitter dopamine.
This is the all-important phase where you become aware of our own human limitations. What we think we know seems very small relative to all the things we don’t know. We learn to forgive ourselves for our mistakes, and to recognize that we are fueled by something much bigger than our own understanding. This is associated with the brain chemical GABA.
THESE FOUR KINDS OF ACTIVITY RARELY COEXIST IN ONE HUMAN LIFE AT THE SAME TIME. WHEN THEY DO, THE CHANCES OF ORIGINAL CREATIVE BRILLIANCE BECOME MUCH HIGHER.
THE BRILLIANCE CYCLE IS A PURELY THEORETICAL MODEL. VERY FEW PEOPLE ACTUALLY MOVE THROUGH ALL PHASES OF THE CYCLE IN AN UNIMPEDED WAY. IN REALITY MOST PEOPLE EXPERIENCE BLOCKAGE. WE RECOGNIZE FOUR WAYS THAT THE CYCLE GETS BLOCKED.
