How the mind makes new ideas

New ideas

DO IT NOW What’s up? Human history is a continuous string of new ideas. Where do they come from?
What’s new?  When humans perceive natural phenomena like a bird taking flight, we’re able to “bend” what we see into an eventual airplane. Neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author David Eagleman explains how humans also “blend” and “break” things to arrive at new ideas. The examples Eagleman provides illustrate the inventive quality of the human mind.
So what? Bend, blend and break.
