Replying to LO9607 -- (MR GEOFFREY F FOUNTAIN) comments on left and right
brain labels, including:

>... Perhaps systems thinkers use "disciplined imagination", as Jim M. coined
>the term in his LO 9574, to visualize in their mind the systemic forces
>(explicit and implicit) that interact in an imagined scene.

There is a body of thought that suggests that the right brain can accept
delegation of tough problems and then solutions spring forth. This is
often encouraged with meditation and when the logical process of deduction
is not available because it was hidden from the conscious, the results are
often considered to be intuition. It is not that the deductive process did
not happen, just that it happened in our subconscious.

I use the term "let's sleep on it" to sum up this process. It can be made
to work consistently with practice. Cheers....Keith
