It indicates indicates the whole whole structure of education is shifting beneath beneath our feet. We need to radically radically rethink our view of intelligence. We know three things about intelligence. One, it's diverse. diverse. We think about the world in all the ways that we experience it. We think visually, we think in sound, we think kinesthetically. kinesthetically. We think in abstract abstract terms, we think in movement. Secondly, intelligence is dynamic. dynamic. If you look at the interactions of a human brain, as we heard yesterday from heard yesterday from a number of presentations, intelligence is wonderfully interactive. The brain isn't divided into compartments. In fact, creativity which I define as the process of having original ideas that have value more often than not more often than not comes about comes about through the interaction of different disciplinary ways of seeing things. The brain is intentionally intentionally by the way, there's a shaft of nerves that joins the two halves of the braincalled the corpus callosum. It's thicker in women. Following off from Helen yesterday, I think this is probably probably why women are better at multi tasking. Because you are, aren't you? There's a raft of research, but I know it from my personal life. If my wife is cooking a meal at home which is not often, often, thankfully. thankfully. (Laughter) But you know, she's doing no, she's good at some things but if she's cooking, you know,she's dealing with people on the phone, she's talking to the kids, she's painting the ceiling, she's doing open heart surgery over here. If I'm cooking, the door is shut, the kids are out, the phone's on the hook, hook, if she comes in I get annoyed. annoyed. I say, "Terry, please, please, I'm trying to fry an egg in here. Give me a break." (Laughter) Actually, you know that old philosophical thing, if a tree falls in a forest and nobody hears it,did it happen? Remember that old chestnut? I saw a great t shirt really recently which said, "If a man speaks his mind speaks his mind in a forest, and no woman hears him, is he still wrong?" (Laughter). And the third thing about intelligence is, it's distinct. distinct. I'm doing a new book at the moment called "Epiphany," which is based on based on a series of interviews with people about how they discovered their talent. I'm fascinated fascinated by how people got to be there. It's really prompted prompted by a conversation I had with a wonderful woman who maybe most people have never heard of heard of she's called Gillian Lynne have you heard of heard of her? Some have. She's a choreographer and everybody knows her work. She did "Cats" and "Phantom "Phantom of the Opera." She's wonderful.
