The MISkeptics Get Together: The Creative Thought Process

  • Jun 13, 2015 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please note that for our June, July, and August Get Togethers we will be meeting at 4:00 PM instead of 1:00 PM due to the venue opening later in the summer.

What is the creative thought process? How does it work? Experience, problem solving, learning, adapting, simulation, and experience. All these are components that contribute to creative thought. It is a misunderstood process we all employ throughout our lives, whether cooking at home, solving difficult "problems" at work or building quantum computers, it is all the same process.

This month our special guest is Tom Flowers. A retired automotive engineer, naval aviator, and engineering inspector for the Saturn V main engines and the Sikorsky H-3 helicopter. 

He will talk to us about the creative thought process, how and why it works and the implications it had for explaining how we view the world.

Come and join us for lively discussion, drinks, dinner and debate! This is a good event for Skeptics of Michigan to come together and discuss local, national, worldwide items affecting skeptics. All are welcome to listen and participate.

Please be sure to RSVP so I know how many are coming. That way I can modify the reservation if necessary.

I hope to see you all there!

    Agree with Vijaya and Norma Jean - but found the place and its pizza and beer to be a great way to pass a Sunday afternoon.

    Had to miss the meeting (picking up family from airport), but perhaps it isn't so bad I missed it if Vijaya says it was a dud.

    This one was a dud.

    Service continues to improve at this venue. Enjoyed getting to know some new people. Speaker had very interesting background.

    The anecdotes from the presenter were entertaining. I wish I could have stayed longer to hear about the creative thought processes.

      The problem is that during hockey season the rooms are damn near impossible to get. Which is why we switch in the fall.

    Glad it's 4 pm. I'm usually not very open till well after 1, making the trek from the Far Upper East Side even more difficult.

    Is the meeting actually 4 pm as the notice says, or 1 to 4 as it usually is? Kathy

      BTW, if any MISKeptics are interested in the conference, I may have a room to share.

    Sorry to miss y'all this Saturday! I had a hot date with my son, Chris. It was hot outside and we had a date arranged to get my pond / fountain up & running for the summer. The fountain is going & the Goldfish are IN! Yippee! Summer! (How was the meeting on Saturday?)
