How to Develop a Beautiful Mind

One of the basic foundations of The Perfect Male Blog, besides making our readers better men in general, is to induce innovation. A man that can innovate is a man that will hold his own future within grasp. In the past we have written posts which we have tried to do exactly that. For example our post based on Schopenhauer’s premise of genius (How to Hit a Target No One Else Can See) and our post The Brilliance of Innovation have intended to initiate you in this proccess.

We, nonetheless, would like to delve deeper. For this post we have decided to share with you a concept which is universal throughout the ideas developed by the beautiful minds of the past. It is a concept which may seem obvious to some very few people, but actually could provide direction for those who strive for it.

In this case, we will be making reference to The Imaginary Foundation, a company dedicated to developing new ways of thinking. They have proposed an eye-opening argument which states that “To Understand Is To Perceive Patterns”. It seems that the pervasive concept behind intricate thinking, according to them, is the ability to perceive patterns. To some extent, we believe there is a great deal of truth in this idea. Patterns, after all, are what help us find meaning in the inconsistencies of the universe.

Here we would like to share with you a list of some of the great minds of our time and the pattern they have discovered:

Leonardo Fibonacci
"The Fibonacci sequence, a set of numbers intimately connected to a mathematical proportion that yields beauty in nature, art, and the human form."

Howard Bloom
"Omnology, the idea that patterns emerge when the arts and sciences are viewed as a whole. Bloom’s synthesis strives to make aesthetics, intuition, emotion, logic, politics, business, and science all facets of a common process, offering us the broadest view conceivable."

James Lovelock
"The Gaia hypothesis. Lovelock proposed that Earth is a living, self-regulating system that functions as a superorganism. His hypothesis has been hugely influential in the development of ecology and environmentalism."

Albert Einstein
"Relativity. Einstein revolutionized modern physics by demonstrating that time and space are not fixed and that mass and energy are manifestations of the same thing."

Ray Kurzweil
"Exponential change. Technological progress will continue to accelerate until machine intelligence surpasses human intelligence—an event called the singularity—at which point humans will transcend biology."

Johann Sebastian Bach
"The art of fugue. Bach’s use of counterpoint to organize thematic variations into intricately detailed works called fugues is unequaled in Western music. While he didn’t invent the form, Bach’s fugues have been credited by scientists as a source of insight about nature and the cosmos."

And a personal favorite of ours, 

Peter Russell
"The Internet is the central nervous system, and each user a discrete neuron, of a newly evolved global brain."

Since we cannot expect you to do something if we haven´t tried it ourselves, we would like to share with you an attempt we once did in trying to perceive a pattern in the universe. The post is called, The Reason Beauty Exists. And even though this attempt at perceiving a pattern is a little far-fetched, we concluded that beauty is a form of curiosity. That we fascinate at things because we want to understand them.

Have you ever noticed a pattern no one else has? Share it with us. Tell us what you think. Your ideas and opinions will truly enhance the value of this post.
