"Liquid Thinking" - an invention of the author and creator of the Theory: The Four Phases of Being.
Liquid Thinking is a new terminology to describe flexible thinking that exemplifies the new mind that according to de Bono, rejects 'rock logic' and embraces 'water logic'. And according to the theory on Human Potential and Its Shadow, the metacognitive strategy "Being Metaphor" allows the person to keep all experience within the human range of "Quest:Provocation" and "Active Database Expertise" in the 'change-able' perspective of "Wonderment:Liminality" in Overlaid Bisociation with "Flux:Transformation". Liquid Thinking engages The Four Phases of Being.
The spiral is still conditioned linear thinking since progress moves sequential, it is suggestive of limited systems because the energy of experience, left behind, once the moment on the spiral passes, flows forward tangential--forgetful.

Multi-spiralling web formations are nature's stalwart configurations: atoms in motion. . . magnetic fields . . . chaos flows . . .idea storms . . . "Liquid thinking" in preparation readies the body-mind perceptions for reading the "need-thought" dynamics behind our "action-responses."
Mind maps link persistent, as fine a filament as sentiment memory and wishful thinking: cosmic, synchronistic connections elastically bound over space and time compacts wisdom out of life's remote and distant, making replete the now moment . . . "overlaid bisociations" of my Liquid Mind. Mary Angela Nangini
