I have to admit that “Secrets to a Creative Mind: Become the Master of Your Mind” by David Judd Nutting was not an “easy” read for me. I was very interested in the content, however, and learned a tremendous amount of valuable information regarding the human brain and how it works.
In this book, Nutting talks about quantum physics, transempirical reality, the complementary principle, the quantum self, and more. It was a bit intimidating for my simple mind, but I was able to develop a better understanding of all of these terms, and make a few connections that I never would have learned had I not read this book. He describes the brain, including the conscious and subconscious, and he uses a phrase called “Thought Talk,” where one has the power to influence and guide one’s subconscious mind to achieve one’s ultimate dream. Nutting suggests that through purposeful and focused meditation, it is possible to connect with the subconscious, where problems can be solved using stored memories. This is what leads to tapping into our creative minds.
Nutting says that creativity is “the ability to take known and established events and rearrange them into a new meaningful order.” He shares many examples from his personal life about using his creativity and tapping into his “Thought Talk,” and how he was very successful practicing these skills. As an industrial engineer, he was instrumental in early video game development as well as designing the first SUV (Jeep Grand Wagoneer), among other significant accomplishments. The most significant nugget I took away from this book is that the brain needs to be challenged and learned new things regularly to maintain strength. Without new challenges, the brain can suffer.
I recommend “Secrets to a Creative Mind: Become the Master of Your Mind” by David Judd Nutting to anyone who is interested in learning more about how the brain works and the connection we all have with quantum physics. I plan to implement the suggestions Nutting offers in this book in the hopes of improving my own creativity that is ready to be released in my brain.
