Developed for "Open Minds,
Open Doors: Leadership in the New World" a conference hosted by Women's Foodservice
Forum, March 22 - 23, 1999.
David Bohm, quantum physicist, stated that “any theoretical science has four
aspects. They are: 1) insight, to perceive the structure of new ideas; 2) imagination, which projects a mental image of the whole
idea, not only as a visual image, but a feeling for it; 3) reasoning,
to work out the consequences logically; and finally, 4) calculation, to get
numbers that make possible precise tests with experiment.”
Bohm laments that most often we spend far too little time exploring the imagination
phase together, in dialog and exploration. We rush to rationalize and bring our familiar
reason to a new thought. We abort our sense of new possibilities.
The aspects on this site are to spark imagination -- to provide possibilities for
the senses to taste, to feel, to ponder as you come to know leadership in the New
World. Make haste slowly in bringing reason and calculation to your imagination.
The future is rational only in hindsight.
