Reverse Thinking

This is in continuation with my previous blog Ticking Clock.

Any bottle, be it medicine or ketchup, in order to get the content out from inside the bottle, you need to open it up by moving the cap counterclockwise. Even the door lock of your house can only be opened, if the key is moved counterclockwise.

Is it not baffling your mind that how on earth there is semblance of symmetry in all the things around us. I am sure that the person who thought about the cap on the bottle to be moved counterclockwise to open, and the person who invented the lock in the first place, were two different people, but they thought the same way for something to open.

Now let’s find out how is it linked with my previous blog. In my previous blog, I have talked about clockwise movement of our life for gauging the age, with the counter clockwise movement of heavenly bodies. My understanding about these movements (I may be wrong) is that actually it is counterclockwise move which opens up anything, be it your mind.

Most of the people think the way everyone is thinking (to get to understand what do I mean by this analogy, read my blog by following the link Against the Odds, whereas in order to get to understand the hidden meaning of life, you will have to start thinking the other way round, which will open up altogether new vistas.

In electro-magnetics, the right hand rule is a way to predict the direction of a force in a magnetic field. To predict the behavior of positive charges, use your right hand. To predict the behavior of negative charges, use your left hand.

Amazingly if you look at the concept above, you will see that the counterclockwise movement of your right hand is taken as positive and the thumb directs you in the positive Y direction. The negativity is attributed to left hand and the counterclockwise movement of your left hand will direct you in the negative Y direction, and clockwise movement of your left hand will direct you in the positive Y direction.

(I am sorry to admit that quite a few concepts are not as easy to digest as I am trying to make them understandable to you. I can only request you to please bear with me on this count)

According to Neuro-scientists, the right brain thinks artistically whereas the left thinks logically, which  in a way substantiates one of my previous arguments described in my another blog Art vs Science.

In order to be logical in your approach, you need to make use of your mind artistically first and then let it think in the reverse direction to end up in a logical conclusion.

That thinking would come your way, when you start thinking against the usual thought process and that is only possible when you open your mind through ‘Reverse Thinking.’
