Are good ideas born among the stars? Do they get transmitted to us through some mysterious satellite of the heavens? Or do good ideas come from within us, from our brain making connections across the billions of data points we actively and passively collect throughout our lives? Is there such thing as an original idea that borrows from previously-shared ideas? Are ideas exclusive to individuals or can groups come together to ideate?
Join us in conversation with Daniel Schmachtenberger as we explore answers to these questions and more. As you will hear, an examination of where ideas come from develops into a discussion about how to develop good ideas — for ourselves and for the benefit of the wider world.
