motivation

Hi, welcome, I am Carol, an artist, inventor, author, and psychosensory practitioner and trainer. I enjoy life to the full, and I am interested in how animals and birds learn and communicate. I like cooking, gardening and the arts and technology.  You can find out more about me on here

Over the years, when I have been working things out quickly, people have responded by saying, 'Oh, you are so creative' as though fast solution finding was something I was born with and that they hadn't been born with these skills. It really puzzled me because I knew that I was using a system to work things out. I started to analyse  what I was doing and questioned how I had learned these skills, so that I could share and explain it to others. And so that other people could have the same skills if they wanted to develop them. I noticed that these skills differed from the 'receive and repeat' skills focused on and developed in schools and universities. Instead, these skills are about working out solutions from first principles. This website provides a space to share that information and to engage with people who want to develop these skills and thinking sequences.

Sequence and skills

In brief, the sequence of skills developed and used are :


QOCTU
Questioning, Observing, Calibrating, Tracking and Utilising

are excellent skills to develop whatever your interests are.

ISI

Internal Sensory information

​​​​Accessing Internal Sensory Information (ISI): this term describes how we access thoughts, feelings, and sensations when specific neural pathways are activated. People often describe accessing internal sensory information as a kind of ‘knowing.’ We can develop our skills in accessing ISI. ISI format differs from seeing, hearing,  tasting, smelling, or being aware of our position or touching something in our external world.

BRAIN ART

​​When ISI (Internal Sensory Information) is accessed it is generally a collection or group and the term Brain Art describes that group.
