Thought process-based education courses

The classes are designed for learners to develop thought processes

There are 4 levels in this course and each level will be either 1 or 2 terms depends on learner’s performance.

Level 1-1: Building concepts (knowledge) – foundation of thinking outside the box

  • Building knowledge is different from learning knowledge. Learning knowledge to understand inhibits brain from thinking since once a concept is understood or known, there is nothing left to think about.
  • With this training, learners will be able to learn how to build knowledge using the thought process.

Level 1-2: Connecting concepts (expanding knowledge) – foundation of creative thinking

  • Connecting concept is essential for creative thinking. For example, Isaac Newton created satellite concept by connecting concepts of force and gravity. In case of Albert Einstein, by connecting the concepts of the speed of the light, space, and time, he created relativity theory.
  • In this training, learners will be trained to connect concepts.

Level 2: Project development and research (Bring curiosity back)

  • Curiosity is essential for creative thinking. But it is not easy to answer to questions out of curiosity. For example, anybody could ask questions like ‘Where does gravity come from?’ ‘How the gravity and force related?’ But finding the relative relationship between the gravity and force won’t. This level is to train learners to develop brain power to find answers to the questions out of curiosity.
  • This level focuses on topics that are observable with 5 senses directly.

Level 3: Simulation (relativity and the law of causation)

  • Questions like ‘what would I see if I travel faster than the speed of the light?’ is very difficult to generate because the phenomenon is not visible. This level of training focuses on simulation skills for non-observable phenomenon and generate questions out of curiosity. Then, simulating relative relationship by applying the law of causation.

Level 4: Application of the law of causation on existence

  • Human exists because water exists. Life forms don’t exist if water doesn’t exist. The concepts are easy to think about but visualizing the phenomenon is NOT. In order to be free from the box and think creatively, visualizing these relative relationship based on existence is required.
