    Tnx Ria, for the clip!

    What I have always admired about EdB is his ability to drive home a complext idea thru simple examples and visuals. That itself is creativity!

An insight switch-over involves discontinuity. It involves breaking loose from an established way of looking at things in order to find a new one. For this reason insight cannot be achieved by the sequential process of logical thinking which insists that you must be right at each stage.

So logical thinking will only preserve the established way of looking at things - not change it. To do this one needs lateral thinking.

these examples are really ingenious solutions. Which of them qualify as examples of lateral thinking?

    I think this is one of them: “Many smoke detectors are designed so they cannot be mounted on the wall until a battery is installed.”

    Number 11: “This airport luggage cart has brakes which are applied whenever the yellow handle is not depressed. Carts will not roll unless they are attended. When carts nested, the rear wheels of all but the last cart are wedged off the floor, so the carts can be pushed easily by airport staff retruning them to service areas.”
