Ideas for Life — The Introduction to "The 7th Sense," by William Duggan

We conclude our week-long feature on The Seventh Sense: How Flashes of Insight Change Your Life, by William Duggan by returning to the book’s beginning and its introduction (see below). In “Ideas for Life” Duggan explains “the seventh sense” and why it is so important for developing new ideas. Duggan writes:

The seventh sense is the mechanism of the human mind that produces new ideas. It’s the epiphany, the flash of insight, the Eureka moment—in the form of an idea that not else had before either. The seventh sense is how new ideas are born. And not just new ideas, but useful ideas. Human achievement advances through flashes of insight that come from the seventh sense.
