What is “lateral thinking fiction”?

.

Lateral thinking fiction is a new way to engage … an exciting new concept to turn back the groupthink tide.

.

Disruptive creativity brought to life through imaginative fiction

“Having explored most of Edward de Bono’s offerings, I can only conclude that the man is a genius.

“Honestly, the depth of thinking and the resources he has created are astounding.

“The problem is …

not enough people are being engaged”

A NEW lateral thinking concept

 

I can just imagine the cringe from the die-hard lateral thinking purists out there that consider any messing with “the Master’s philosophy” to be blasphemy. LOL

But … hear me out before you write me off …

 

Lateral thinking … “fiction”

.

What is it?

  1. A new way to engage;
  2. An introduction to some fun and easy basics; and
  3. Powerful demonstrations of lateral thinking derived outcomes.

 

“It’s an opportunity to whet some appetites”

 

Was that so bad … so threatening? LOL.

Let me elaborate a little …

.

Lateral thinking mass appeal fiction.

The thinking behind this is quite simple.

Each book/movie (or series of books/movies) has a leading protagonist highly skilled in the application of disruptive lateral thinking techniques. The character investigates, explores, and extrapolates WITH the reader/audience.

Simple, but specific lateral thinking tools are used to achieve breakthroughs in science, philosophy, crime … whatever.

The first lateral thinking novel of fiction (WIP title):

We should NEVER have trusted the aliens

Our lateral thinking protagonist and hero, Julius “Caesar” Romeo, has a secret passion … to investigate the alien question.

Julius employs lateral thinking techniques to disrupt exiting views, expose the Roswell coverup, build a bridge from science to religion, and solve the assassination of JFK.

(Check out the first book’s blurb here)

 

Future books might be on subjects like …

Lateral thinking investigations … cold case

Lateral thinking investigations … haunted mysteries

 

Or for a younger audience …

Lateral thinking investigations … lost treasures

Etc.

.

“Children are quick to pick up habits … let’s make them good ones”

.

The books will be informative, fun, teach, and most importantly … they will help to turn the tide against this “groupthink Armageddon” that threatens the very fabric of what it is to be distinctly human.

.

 

“My focus is to open the door … to offer that first enticing taste.

If people like what they experience, they’ll wade in a bit deeper”
