Thinking Between Boxes

By: Mel Rosenberg

Creative thinking involves thinking between boxes, not outside of them. Jumping between two frames of thought, two states of mind, two categories, two things, two words, two disciplines, two ideas that seem to have absolutely nothing to do with each other. Dichotomous. Incompatible. The creativity begins when you start to glue them together anyway. Sometimes the connection is an invention that can be patented. Often the connection is fun and hilarious.
