IDEAS : creative disruption

100 more words based on a re-reading of On Walking by Phil Smith

2.

‘Walk wavy against rules.’ (pg. 17) When drifting/walking/exploring disrupt yourself. Let go of the everyday and animate your thinking by turning Occam’s Razor (the idea that the simplest explanation is the most likely) on its head. No matter how partial your evidence take a leap of faith, let your imagination do the talking and weave the most complex explanations for the things you find/experience. Look for secret codes. Be a child. Be wide-eyed. Open. Make fantastical connections and see how far your explanations take you down the yellow brick road to the beginnings of stories without middles or ends.
