Can you diverge? Flex yo'self in 2013!
This particular video pertains to radicalizing education, but it addresses a larger societal issue. Our culture is one that has favored Conformity, at the expense of Creativity, in the name of Industrialization (read: Capitalism.)
We ask you, dear readers, in what ways can you nurture Divergent Thinking, the essential capacity for Creativity, "the ability to see lots of possible answers to a question, lots of possible ways of interpreting a question, to think laterally, not just in linear, or convergent ways, to see multiple answers, not one" in your lives?
At Revolver and Voyager we hope to continue to explore new ways of asking questions, new ways of resolving problems, and creative new forms of expression. Let's resolve to remain flexible in 2013. Limber up in spirit, mind and body! But first, maybe we start with some desk-side yoga?
Now, if only this involved taking Shavasana straight across your desk at the end! NAMASTE!!!
