A New Breakthrough Process For Innovation


Tectonic forces are colliding in the modern world as cultural and commercial ecosystems are increasingly becoming entangled internally and externally in conflict. Furthermore, the persistent momentum of transformative technology; robotics – artificial intelligence – predictive data modeling and soon quantum computing are going to accentuate this volatility. If we are to find future success in this new environment then finding a path through the maze of ‘what’s next’ is mandatory. That means that innovation is the wormhole through which we must travel to find consistent success and evolve at optimal efficiency.

But depending on the year and field, anywhere from 70% to 95% of new product launches fail and around 75% of all venture capital backed start-ups fail. So it has always been assumed that innovation is just a blind shot in the dark for the few willing to try it. This is now about to change as OIsource consulting (oisource.com) has unearthed a path to innovation as a scientific process for everyone to use. The fundamentals of this process came from years of study in the diverse fields of physics, philosophy and education along with the personal disciplines of ideation, meditation and stoicism. The totality of this learning has brought a unique insight into a new paradigm of human existence that guides OIsource to empower individuals and organizations for the future.

The gateway to that insight and the process for innovation that was derived from it starts with the ITP, which stands for Innovative Thinking Process. The ITP is a mental and writing exercise that enables us to intentionally originate, interconnect and validate relevant ideas as the foundation for successful innovation. But the ITP is not a groupthink ideation exercise we are used to. It is a demanding, self-directed, solitary endeavor that challenges us to think differently. The ITP reaches beyond ideas and actually develops Idea Models. This is the reason breakthrough innovators succeed, because of their natural skill to develop Idea Models that have the capability to project future disruptive concepts that cannot yet be experienced directly. Idea Models are the conduits through which Steve Jobs could, in his words; “project the future”. In essence, Idea Models have the dynamism to explain what is presently impossible while simultaneously providing a map to build that impossible through the future maze of ‘what’s next’.

Everyone can now have the opportunity to experience this breakthrough process for innovation with the ITP course, which is currently being offered free for a limited time at: oisource/teachable.com/p/itp

A New Process To Generate Relevant Ideas For Innovation

The heart of successful innovation is not just about coming up with new ideas but come up with relevant ideas. This is critical to do in today’s business world where you are constantly required to come up with ideas to address problems in your company. Furthermore, you may be tasked to come up with ideas for products and services as well. If you think about all the ideas you have come up with in the past, maybe around half worked and half didn’t. But statistically the bigger the idea the more likely it is to fail. For instance, depending on the year and field, anywhere from 70% to 95% of new product launches fail and around 75% of all venture capital backed start-ups fail. The people involved in these failures all thought they had great ideas and then invested a lot effort and money to implement them. But clearly there was a disconnect between their ideas and what actually could be successful. The reason these innovators failed is because they did not have a cognitive process for generating relevant ideas.

This may seem like a blanket oversimplification to most people but it would not have been to a man named Edwards Deming. He was a renowned engineer, professor and consultant who lived by a very powerful phrase, which was: “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.” So based on this dynamic, if you don’t have a process to come up with relevant ideas then, simply by default, you don’t know what you’re doing. Hence the high rate of innovation failure throughout all fields. To change this dynamic, OIsource (oisource.com) was launched to teach you a skill that will develop your ability to generate relevant ideas to successfully innovate. This is done through a mental and writing exercise that enables the participant to intentionally originate, interconnect and validate ideas. This exercise is called the ITP, which stands for Innovative Thinking Process.

The ITP is a demanding, self-directed, solitary endeavor that challenges you to think differently. Research studies are beginning to show that this type of isolated thinking is the most productive form of thinking: https://www.inc.com/​melissa-schilling​/the-science-of-why​-brainstorming​-in-groups-​doesnt-work.html Nikolai Tesla understood this even in his time when he noted: “Originality thrives in seclusion, free of outside influences…”.

The ITP is therefore the complete opposite of the interaction within group ideation sessions you may be used to. But after going through the ITP is when you should participate in a group ideation session. At that point you will have a thorough and deep understanding of the relevance of your ideas. Then you are much better prepared for the group ideation session and it can become more productive and impactful for all parties involved. Ultimately, the skill you develop will empower you to discover your potential of being a high-level innovative thinker.

Experience how effective the ITP can be for you through a new online course that is being offered free for a limited time at: oisource.teachable​.com/p/itp

Why Augmented Reality Will Be Remarkable And Virtual Reality Will Be Regulated

The remarkable potential of Augmented Reality is just starting to be realized. It will continue to thrive and advance throughout all the fields of business, science, medicine, education, government, military and entertainment. Augmented Reality will then take a hyper leap forward once the Unified Field Theory in physics is understood. At that time it will become accepted that mass and density are independent states interlinked only in nature, but mass specifically can be produced separately within Augmented Reality. This will be achieved by isolating images within areas where intense frequencies can be emitted from one source and then forcibly restricted by another source, thereby increasing the frequencies amplitude to attain mass without density at specific points. In essence, Augmented Reality will evolve into the first Holodeck. This will just be an augmented process of nature where the non-physical constructs of quantum frequencies (i.e. the field) self-restrict into the physical construct of a particle. So that’s the remarkable value of Augmented Reality. It will always be just an extension of nature. Consequently, Augmented Reality will only help humans become more creative and evolve society as a whole.

The reason for this positive outcome is due to Augmented Reality only being superposed onto our Genuine Reality. Therefore no matter how advanced the technology becomes, Augmented Reality will still enable the mind to have a steady connection to our Genuine Reality. This is a critical aspect because Genuine Reality, as-it-is, has enough challenges of emotional and intelligence complexity for the mind to properly function within. So adding any additional interaction with visual and auditory technology only has the result of separating the mind, to one degree or another, from Genuine Reality. In the future, it will be understood that within our Genuine Reality there is already a separation between the physical brain and the cognitive mind. Furthermore the mind is not just one component but comprised of multiple components. Therefore there is an additional separation within your mind between the identity you sense and perceive your Self to be and your thoughts, intuition and emotion. So there are already two stages of separation between your Self and Genuine Reality as-it-is. That’s why something as elementary as a movie can separate your mind, to some extent, from Genuine Reality. This is what Psychology labels as experience-taking.

Since Augmented Reality is only being superposed on Genuine Reality, a combined experience is produced which limits the potential level of additional emotional and intelligence complexity that the mind is challenged with to experience. But Virtual Reality is completely and fundamentally different from Augmented Reality, even though the names and commercial terminology used for both sound similar. They are in fact so radically different that Virtual Reality can actually be described as having the same effect on the mind as poison has on the body. Yes, a correlation can be made between poison and Virtual Reality. Poison unhinges the operating system of a physical organism until it leads to the organism’s failure. So a higher level of poison just leads to an accelerated rate of unhinging the operating system of that organism. In turn, Virtual Reality has the same effect on the cognitive mind. Virtual Reality unhinges the operating system of the cognitive mind until it leads to the mind’s failure to comprehend the difference between Genuine Reality and the substituted Virtual Reality. This is possible because Virtual Reality does not just superpose images and sound but instead substitutes a new reality by completely isolating the minds vision and auditory experience. Therefore the more intense the Virtual Reality, the greater the emotional and intelligence complexity that the mind is challenged with to experience. Which leads to an accelerated rate at which the mind is separated from Genuine Reality. This process of separation from Genuine Reality is what unhinges the operation of the cognitive mind just like poison unhinges the operation of the physical organism.

Inevitably, Virtual Reality technology will advance until its commercial and illicit use will have devastating affects on society. There will be lawsuits against the companies, wherever they may be in the world, making and using this technology. The government will also start targeting those same companies due to the technology being used by criminal organization and rogue nations. Eventually, government will regulate all Virtual Reality technology and designate its use solely to approved agencies. The reason Virtual Reality will not be banned and outlawed completely is because it, like poison, can have extremely beneficial effects in specific circumstances. For instance, specific poison, in specific amounts, under specific controlled conditions, can actually heal and transform organisms. Similarly, Virtual Reality will be used in specific situations in the medical field to heal trauma patients. It will also be used in specific situations in the military field to transform a terrorist into a model citizen. So in the end, Virtual Reality will have uses. But those uses will not be scalable, sustainable or commercial.

This forecast, by itself, will not stop companies and investors from collectively allocating billions of dollars over the next decade into Virtual Reality. But the fact that almost all will lose their entire investment just may give some pause to consider this alternative paradigm. If you are part of a leadership team investing your time and/or money in the development of Virtual Reality then OIsource ( oiscource.com ) can help you create a strategy which will give your investment the best chance of success in the very narrow future window you will have.

Unmasking The Cognitive Process Behind Questions And Why They Are The Linchpin To Innovation


Many articles and books have been written about the importance of questions to achieve innovation. Entrepreneurs and business leaders have also talked about the critical impact questions have on innovation. Eric Schmidt, former Google CEO, went even further when he noted: “We run this company on questions, not answers.”

So there is clearly an immense reliance on questions. Yet not even Neuroscientists understand the cognitive process behind how questions work. Their best guess is that the brain cells produce the mind, which then produces you, who then asks the questions and then proceeds to answer them. Unfortunately, that’s not a scientific model. That’s science fiction. To truly understand a valid cognitive process, a new paradigm called the Mind Model is going to be presented here. It is one where the brain/mind dynamic is identical to the model of how the computer works. The computer has mechanical hardware that is run by an operating system. In turn, the human has biological hardware that is run by an operating system. We label the biological hardware as the brain and the operating system as the mind. In the computer, when the operating system advances to the point of making the mechanical hardware obsolete, that mechanical hardware has to be thrown away and replaced by upgraded hardware. But in a human, the biological hardware that is the brain is continually upgraded by being rewired by the operating system that is the mind.

But that is only a partial description of the Mind Model. The rest of the description is one where the mind is not one single component but is comprised of several separate components. Starting with the main mind component which is you – the identity you sense and perceive your Self to be. This is an important aspect to recognize because there is a critical delineation between your Self and your other mind components. Those other mind components will be labeled henceforth as: Creative Thought, Reactive Thought, Rational Thought, Intuition and Emotion.

Let’s first take a deeper dive into explaining who you are. Your identity includes your core attributes of intelligence, personality, talents, likes, dislikes, strengths and weaknesses. Your identity also includes your memory, for which the new term Personal Knowledge Base will be (i.e. Virtual RAM) substituted from here on. You are also the decision maker. The other mind components of Thought, Intuition and Emotion only present choices for you to make decisions on. These choices are a form of guidance and influence on you that have helped determine who you are now.

These other mind components have been guiding and influencing you throughout your whole life as you were making decisions. Influencing you for good and for bad as well as for collaboration and for conflict (i.e. Cognitive Relativity). Yes, this process of interaction between you and your other mind components has been so seamless and fluid that you have always considered your thinking to be the function of one solitary unit. But it is not. Only you make the ultimate decisions on the choices the other mind components present to you. Jesus and Buddha described these mind components masked in the cloak of religious terms. But societal evolution has now advanced enough for these concepts to finally be openly unmasked in scientific terms.

The last aspect that needs to be described has also, up to now, been masked in religious terms. It deals with where the informational-choices come from that are presented to you by the other mind components. That information originates from one source that will be labeled henceforth as the Universal Knowledge Base (i.e. Virtual ROM). In essence, the other mind components perform a function similar to highly advanced search apps that also originate their information from one source but are customized and personalized for each unique mobile device – which in this case is you. Yes, you are unique, like your iris and fingerprint. Furthermore, out of all the mind components, only you are curious. Only you ask questions. If you already have the answers you need within your Personal Knowledge Base then you would not be asking questions. The act of asking questions means you are seeking answers from a source outside of your Personal Knowledge Base. So when you ask questions internally, the responses are coming in the form of choices from the other mind components. Then you perceive those choices as answers to the questions you asked. The mind components of Creative and Reactive Thought offer you the positive and negative information-based answers that you did not know before to facilitate innovation.

So the process within our complex matrix ecosystem is one where you have free-will to make unique random choices on existing Universal Knowledge Base information for the purpose of co-creating completely new experiences and innovation that has never existed before. But people have not understood this process and therefore have only used it incidentally. With this process unmasked, you are now empowered to use your mind components intentionally, like tools from a toolbox. Yet, this can only happen if you ask questions. So, now we finally get to the crux of the entire paradigm to ask what is so special about questions in this process?

In computer terms, asking questions is like initializing command prompts.
They have three outcomes:
1. Questions give you the mandate to set the agenda for the other mind components to follow and focus on.
2. Questions always prompt a response from the other mind components. Be it in the form of a complete answer, an assumption or just a hint.
3. Questions unlock and make room in your Personal Knowledge Base to receive and store new information from the answers you receive.

When you are not asking questions the other mind components are guiding and influencing you with their own agenda. Also without asking questions your Personal Knowledge Base is blocked from retaining any new information, therefore severely limiting your ability to innovate. In essence, you are either using the other mind components or they are using you. The other mind components using you has been observed by Psychology and given many different labels. One of those labels is ‘automaticity’ or the ability to effortlessly take actions. This ability of being able to act without really thinking about it is the state most people are engaged in most of the time.

So now we understand there to be two types of completely different mind functions that can happen in your mind. The first type is where you are able to make effortless and fast decisions on the agenda the other mind components set for you. There is no potential for Self-identity growth in this reactive mindset. Therefore it has also been labeled by Psychology as a ‘fixed mindset’. Then there is the secondary type mind function comprised of laborious and slow thinking. Within this type of thinking you are setting the agenda by asking questions, analyzing the answers to those questions and accessing your own Personal Knowledge Base to solve problems. There is nearly unlimited potential for Self-identity growth in this creative mindset. This has been labeled by Psychology as a ‘growth mindset’. Again, you are either using your mind components by asking questions or the mind components are using you. That is why questions are the linchpin to the cognitive process of originating new ideas for innovation. And the highest level of this process is not just to originate new ideas but to use the technique breakthrough innovators use and develop Idea Models.

At this point you may be asking if there is a bold use for this paradigm? The answer is yes, and it is anchored in the understanding that millions of future years of information in the form of breakthrough physics and technology exists and can potentially be sourced. While the construct of planned randomness (i.e. Uncertainty Principle) ensures that future human experiences and conflicts remain only as planned probabilities, the information for breakthrough physics and technology to continually evolve sentient societies is set. Everything from powerful conscious AI, to medical instruments that use frequencies in repairing DNA, to geometric shaped starships that are propelled forward at near light speed – without resistance – by internally moving magnetic fields that move external space-matter/space-time around the vessel. ALL. THIS. INFORMATION. EXISTS. NOW. And it can be sourced through questions and Idea Models. Wouldn’t it be fun to hack our matrix ecosystem and go source it?

These Mind Model concepts are not isolated. They are derived from a larger physics Unified Field Theory model. The full documentation on this new paradigm is found at: oisource.com/why-we-exist. But the only place you can learn the practical application to this paradigm, to come up with the right questions and to use your other mind components as tools to develop Idea Models, is in the OIsource ( oisource.com ) training.

The Bold Strategy To Transform U.S. Education Into America’s Most Promising Opportunity

 

The following three-step process develops a bold strategy for any large organization:

  • Define the main challenge.
  • Understand the critical factor within that challenge.
  • Apply organizational strength into the ‘most promising opportunity’ within the critical factor.

So let’s use this process to develop a bold strategy for a large organization called America.

First Step:
The main challenge for America is to grow its economy.

Second Step:
The critical factor for the growth of the American economy is having communities be the vehicles, along with their companies that are the internal engines, to continually innovate. (In turn, that innovation level will dictate how quickly the adjacent government and financial systems are forced to evolve).

Third Step:
The organizational strength of America is its ability to empower and then benefit from trillions of internal decentralized, diverse and competing choices being made within communities. The ‘most promising opportunity’ within any one community is a school of U.S. Education that needs to produce individuals with evolving skill sets to continually foster innovation. So America’s organizational strength should be applied to its most promising opportunity. That is to achieve an outcome of U.S. Education, as a whole, benefiting from its own internal decentralized, diverse and competing choices.

But this has not happened because American leadership has failed to understand their role within the bold strategy. Consequently, U.S. Education is not set up to foster innovation skill sets but is instead focused on copying centralized education systems of other countries. But other centralized education systems will always seem more successful because they are more effective at developing homogenous students that can memorize and regurgitate current information – which is the opposite of achieving an innovation skill set. So the counter productive focus of U.S. Education actually has the result of negating America’s organizational strength and turning its most promising opportunity into its greatest weakness.

But this failure can be overcome with a breakthrough solution. That solution is to implement a system that will be the internal engine that continually advances and innovates the vehicle of U.S. Education. LED accelerator
( CreateLEDaccelerator.com ) would achieve this result by being a dual system within U.S. Education that will develop high-level creative thinkers. LED accelerator, which stands for Leadership Empowering Diversity, shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X that were created to be vertically intensive within their respective parent organization. The difference with LED accelerator is that malleable brains of the selected gifted students are going to be continuously wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences. LED accelerator students will collaborate and compete using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products and services they intuitively see existing in the future world. This is a process of intentionally developing our future breakthrough innovators and adult leaders. This dual system will be sustainable because the hyper competitive student teams, within each LED accelerator school district, will continually adopt best practices, learning strategies and interactive culture from the decentralized, diverse and competing choices the student teams will be making.

In turn, the continually changing curriculum and team achievement results will provide for educators and administrators the evidence-based data on which aspects of LED accelerator can be scaled and implemented in U.S. Education, the parent organization. So internally generated evidence-based data of LED accelerator will be the impetus to continually innovate the entire U.S. Education system ahead of evolving needs of American communities.

Why Google Is One Of The Few Organizations In History That Has Earned A Legacy

The concept of a Legacy is misunderstood as something having to do with a large organization achieving recognized successful outcomes. It does not. A Legacy is a progression level higher than success. A Legacy means that in future history a large organization will be remembered, not for its success, but for the significance of its impact on societal evolution in its time.

It is not enough for an organization to have a mission and vision statement to intentionally achieve a Legacy. If a large organization aspires to be historically significant, it must also develop a Legacy statement along with a strategic plan on how to execute it. A Legacy statement for any organization is understood through the universal and scalable objective of:

Abundant resources will be used and wasted
on attaining what is scarce.

At the macro level, within the cosmological organization, the resources of energy and time are abundant. So those resources are used to create billions of complex galaxy systems, each having billions of suns and solar systems. The abundant resources of time and energy are wasted on the creation of these systems in order to attain what is scarce. That scarce objective is the small quantity of evolving sentient life on habitable planets. That is why iconic physicist Fred Hoyle noted: “The notion that not only the biopolymer but the operating program of a living cell could be arrived at by chance in a primordial organic soup here on the Earth is evidently nonsense of a high order.” 

There are about 2000 enzymes on Earth. The chance of obtaining them all in a random trial by accident is impossible, even if the rest of the cosmos consisted of (which it does not) an “organic soup”. So at the macro level, there is clearly an intentional strategy being executed to waste abundant resources to attain what is scarce. That is a Legacy at the level of cosmological evolution.

At the micro level, within any large human run organization, the resources of proprietary goods, services, skills and access to capital are abundant. The low price point of the resources dictates their status as abundant. Once those resources are identified, the large organization needs to decide what scarce objective it will waste its abundance on. It does not mean the entire organization needs to do this. A division thereof will do. It also does not mean the venture should lose money. Huge profit is possible.

But to date there has been no intentional strategy for any organization to waste abundant resources to attain what is scarce. That is why throughout history there have been instances of large organizations that only incidentally achieved what we now recognize as a Legacy. Those organizations did not have that as their objective but they achieved a Legacy none-the-less. Here are some examples of what their Legacy statements may have stated if those organizations had that as their intentional objective:

Alexander III of Macedon’s (Alexander the Great) organization:
The Macedonian military will use their resources to uproot stagnant fiefdoms in order to impact vast regions with significant cultural diffusion and innovation.

Gandhi’s organization:
The Indian people will use their bodies and volition as resources to force out subjugation in order to impact on world consciousness how structured non-violent disobedience can be employed instead of armed conflict.

Google’s organization:
Google will use their resources to facilitate world-wide prompt access to constantly updated relevant information in order to impact human ability to learn and assimilate that information into new ideas, concepts and understanding.

History has shown us that the success and effect most organizations have on society, no matter how large they become, is short-term. But now the reason has been unmasked to why some organizations are able to achieve a long-term impact, far beyond their existence. A path to earn a Legacy has been outlined. If you are part of the leadership team of a large organization, then you have an opportunity to intentionally achieve eternal significance; a Legacy. OIsource ( oisource.com ) can help you create that Legacy statement and the strategy to achieve it.

Why LED Accelerator Is The Sustainable And Scalable Future Of U.S. Education

With relatively minor adjustments, a schoolteacher from decades ago would feel right at home within the modern classroom. Other than replacing books with tablets, there has been little system advancement. In the past, educational excellence meant providing students equal opportunity to learn information that was not easily or publically accessible. Today, information is available for free anywhere, anytime, for anyone with Internet access. Furthermore, the biggest impact on society is yet to come from artificial intelligence, big data, robotics and quantum computing. All this technology has made information a commodity that no longer has any value in education. So the current process of forcing students to memorize information and then grading them on how well they regurgitate it is obsolete. Students already understand this and know that their education has become self-defeating as it teaches them to compete with technology rather than using it as a tool. In the future, the value of education will reside solely in how students’ minds can be engaged to creatively find, aggregate, transform and use information in new ways. Creative skills will ultimately define professional and personal success.

Consequently, individualized Project Based Learning, intertwined with the arts, will be the ultimate future of U.S. Education and will be the best way to stimulate creativity. Yet educators cannot explain, as a process, how to establish and then continually innovate an ever-changing Project Based Learning curriculum. Furthermore this curriculum cannot just have short-term success. It must be sustainable, scalable and innovate ahead of the needs of an evolving society around it. Yes, U.S. Education should not be decades behind but instead should be decades ahead of society. Unfortunately educators are completely and totally out of their league to achieve these necessary results even though they will be forced to try. ‘Education experts’ will experiment with teaching systems for decades to come until evidence starts pointing to a system that can be successful. This will be a chaotic transition with many brutal failures. These transitional system experiments will waste generations of students’ lives as well as being detrimental for society. But these future failures can be bypassed with a breakthrough solution. That solution is to implement a system that will continually advance and innovate U.S. Education from the inside.

LED accelerator ( CreateLEDaccelerator.com ) would achieve these results by being a dual system within U.S. Education that will develop high-level creative thinkers. LED accelerator, which stands for Leadership Empowering Diversity, shares the goals of other dual systems like Xerox, PARC, DARPA and Google X that were created to be vertically intensive within their respective parent organization. The difference with LED accelerator is that malleable brains of the selected gifted students are going to be continuously wired for adaptive algorithms by their experiences. LED accelerator students will collaborate and compete using tools that exist in the current world to manifest the products and services they intuitively see existing in the future world. This is a process of intentionally developing our future breakthrough innovators and adult leaders. This dual system will be sustainable because the hyper competitive student teams, within each LED accelerator school district, will continually adopt best practices, learning strategies and interactive culture.

In turn, the continually changing curriculum and team achievement results will provide for administrators the evidence-based data on which aspects of LED accelerator can be scaled and implemented in U.S. Education, the parent organization. So the current process of relying on failed guesses of ‘education experts’ to originate future curriculum and doctrines will cease. The internally generated evidence-based data of LED accelerator will be the impetus to continually innovate the entire U.S. Education system ahead of evolving social, economic, government and military needs.

This type of dual system, no matter what it’s named, within U.S. Education will absolutely be the eventual end-system that all Project Based Learning experiments will lead to. There is no way around it, as the gifted students have always and will always separate themselves from the general student population when they are unchained from their desks. It is by design that naturally gifted individuals have the potential, when developed, to lead and guide the evolution of society. So this breakthrough solution for U.S. Education is just part of that leadership to bypass the future failures of ‘education experts’ and proactively launch the first beta LED accelerator system now.

Unmasking How Intelligence Collaborates With Emotion to Facilitate Human Innovation

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jw-o7qoBlDE

All intelligence is artificial. This is because intelligence is just aggregated algorithms. An algorithm is aggregated math. Math is aggregated information. And information in-of-itself is artificial. This means that the intelligence associated with a computer, or an insect or a human, is artificial. The only reason humans perceive our intelligence as being real {nous}, and in essence non-artificial, is because of emotion. So emotion is the non-artificial component that makes human artificial intelligence attain significance and purpose. But both intelligence and emotion function through a process. Therefore both are systems. So our cognitive reality can be understood as being a process where an Artificial Intelligence System interacts and collaborates with a Non-Artificial Emotion System.

At OIsource (oisource.com) we unmasked this cognitive process and created a mental and writing exercise that teaches entrepreneurs and corporate teams a skill to innovate. We did this through a new paradigm of the brain/mind dynamic we call the Mind Model that will outline here. But before we do that we need to first present an overview of the currently accepted Neuroscience model as a baseline. The best guess of Neuroscience is that the brain produces the mind. The synopsis of this model is one where the brain cell, which does not know or care who you are, gets together with billions of other brain cells, which do not know or care who you are. This produces; the identity you sense your-self to be, multiple strains of divergent thought and emotion. Unfortunately, that is not a scientific model. That’s science fiction.

In contrast the concepts of the brain/mind dynamic within the Mind Model are identical to the model of how the computer works. The computer has mechanical hardware that is run by an operating system. In turn, the human has biological hardware that is also run by an operating system. We label the biological hardware as the physical brain and the operating system as the cognitive mind. In the computer, when the operating system advances to the point of making the mechanical hardware obsolete, that mechanical hardware has to be upgraded by being replaced. But in a human, the biological hardware that is the brain is continually upgraded by being rewired by the operating system that is the mind. In turn, the mind itself is comprised of a dual structure artificial intelligence system and non-artificial emotion system that interact and collaborate together.

Each human mind saves all sensory information input that the body sees, hears and experiences to its own personal knowledge base {long-term memory}. The personal knowledge base is like a hard drive of experience-created information that the mind can access, use and aggregate into new innovation {incremental theory}. In this process, the mind’s force {volts} and transmission capacity {amps} is limited by how the physical brain is neurologically wired. Therefore it becomes necessary for the brain to be constantly rewired by the mind to accommodate the mind’s increasing force and transmission capacity needs. So the more the mind is stimulated to aggregate information into innovation, the more the mind has to rewire and expand the brain’s capabilities. But the physical brain offers resistance {ohms} to the cognitive mind rewiring it. Emotion within this process acts as a catalyst that stimulates the rewiring of the brain by constantly changing the force, direction and aggregation of information into new innovation.

This model of the brain/mind dynamic is not an isolated theory. It is derived from a larger physics Unified Field Theory model. The full documentation on this new paradigm is found at: oisource.com/why-we-exist The main take-away from this paradigm is that the artificial nature of human and mechanical intelligence is the same. But the biological hardware of the brain and the interaction with emotion within the mind completely transforms the capability of human intelligence. That is the advantage of human intelligence over mechanical intelligence to innovate. Because only with the collaboration of emotion can human intelligence navigate the vast ocean of available data, aggregate specific information from divergent fields and then innovate something entirely new of significance and relevance. Mechanical intelligence will never be able to do this because it will never acquire emotion, no matter how powerful it becomes.

But you and your company still need a path through the constantly advancing and disruptive technology. OIsource offers you this path by teaching you to use your intelligence and emotion as tools to innovate. Contact us to find out how to make our innovation training experience work for you and your company.

Why Breakthrough Innovators Develop Idea Models And How You Can Learn That Skill

We all recognize that global competition and innovation is constantly accelerating. Many people are also starting to face additional challenges from new technologies of artificial intelligence, big data and robotics. In the future, the way we combat these challenges to become successful is by coming up with new ideas that lead to innovation.

However, just incidentally coming up with new ideas will no longer be adequate. The advancement of globalization and disruptive technologies will create an innovation battlefield that will require innovators to intentionally and systematically come up with relevant new ideas that can lead to innovation. OIsource (oisource.com) was launched to empower innovators in this new battlefield. We teach entrepreneurs and corporate teams a cognitive process that develops their skill to innovate. This is done through a mental and writing exercise that enables the participant to intentionally originate, interconnect and validate ideas so they have the best chance to be successful. We call this exercise the ITP, which stands for Innovative Thinking Process.

But the ITP goes far beyond just originating new ideas. The ITP actually develops Idea Models. This is the reason breakthrough innovators succeed, because they reach beyond new ideas with their natural skill to develop Idea Models. The development of models is not unique to breakthrough innovators; it’s in fact now a mandatory process for scientists to develop mathematical, physical and conceptual models.

But unlike other models, the Idea Models are kinetic and not static. Idea Models have the capability to project future disruptive concepts that cannot yet be experienced directly. Models are the conduits through which Steve Jobs could, in his words; “project the future”. In essence, models have the dynamism to explain what is presently impossible while simultaneously providing a map to build that impossible.

Furthermore, the specific stages of the ITP are like program coding for the mind. In this analogy using the ITP is like upgrading your software. The more you use it, the more innovative your mind becomes. So if used day-in and day-out, the ITP will systematically push you to become a high-level innovative thinker. Those learned skills also yield the only path to ultimately find out if you have the ability of mastering those skills to become a breakthrough innovator.

All this is possible because the ITP was derived from an advanced new paradigm on the brain/mind dynamic. We call this new way of looking at your mind and how it works; the Mind Model. It came from years of research within the fields of neuroscience, physics and philosophy, as well as insight from the methods of ideation, meditation and stoicism. The full documentation of this new paradigm is on oisource.com. But the only place you can learn the practical application of this paradigm is in the ITP training experience.

Why Most Innovation Fails And The New Opportunity To Make It Succeed

 

The heart of innovation is about coming up with new ideas that you did not have before. This is critical to do in today’s business world where you are constantly required to come up with new ideas to address problems in your company. Furthermore, you may be tasked to come up with new ideas for products and services as well. If you think about all the new ideas you have come up with in the past, maybe around half worked and half didn’t. But statistically the bigger the idea the more likely it is to fail. For instance, depending on the year and field, anywhere from 70% to 95% of new product launches fail and around 75% of all venture capital backed start-ups fail. The people involved in these failures all thought they had great ideas and then invested a lot effort and money to implement them. But clearly there was a disconnect between their ideas and what actually could be successful. The reason they failed is because they did not have a cognitive process for generating ideas.

This may seem like a blanket oversimplification. But I believe it to be accurate and so did a man named Edwards Deming. He was a renowned engineer, professor and consultant who lived by a very powerful phrase, which was: “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”

So based on this dynamic, if you don’t have a process to come up with new ideas and are just doing it incidentally then, simply by default, you don’t know what you’re doing. Hence the high rate of innovation failure throughout all fields. OIsource.com was launched to change this dynamic. We teach entrepreneurs and corporate teams a cognitive process that develops their skill to innovate. This is done through an exercise that enables you to intentionally originate, interconnect and validate ideas so they have the best chance to be successful. We call this exercise the ITP, which stands for Innovative Thinking Process.

The ITP is comprised of a rigorous mental and writing activity, which puts you in situations that challenge you to think differently. It is a demanding, self-directed, solitary endeavor. Modern research studies are beginning to show that this type of isolated thinking is the most productive form of thinking: https://www.inc.com/​​melissa-schilling​/the-​science-of-why​-brainstorming​-in-groups-​doesnt-work Nikolai Tesla understood this even in his time when he noted: “Originality thrives in seclusion, free of outside influences…”.

The ITP is therefore the complete opposite of the interaction within group ideation sessions you may be used to. But after going through the ITP is when you should participate in a group ideation session. At that point you will have a thorough and deep understanding of the validity and relevance of your new ideas. At that point, you are much better prepared for the group ideation session and it can become more productive and impactful for all parties involved.
