Her er en aritmetikformel: III=III+III. Den er åbenlyst forkert.Du må kun flytte om på en streg, for at ligningen skal blive aritmetisk korrekt. Hvordan kan det lade sig gøre?Svaret er: III=III=III. Du har taget den lodrette streg i plustegnet og lagt den vandret, så får du et lighedstegn - og hele formlen bliver til en såkaldt tautologi der altid er sand.
Why is a relaxed state of mind so important for creative insights?

However not alle daydreams are equally effective at inspiring useful news ideas. In his experiments, Schooler distinguishes between two types of daydreaming. The first type occurs when people notice they are daydreaming only when proddedt by the researcher. (...) The second type of daydreaming occurs when people catch themselves during the experiment - they notice they are daydreaming on their own. (...) "The point is that it is not enough to just daydream," Schooler says. "Letting your mind drift off is the easy part. The hard part is mantaining enough awareness so tht even when you start to daydream yo can interrupt yourself and notice at creative thought."
