Within each of us is a whole inner world, in which we sometimes spend an inordinate amount of time. It is populated with anything that our imagination can dream up, from replays of past events to fantastic dreamscapes.

In generating new ideas, creative people often spend much time working in our inner worlds and make much use of the powerful imagination that we all have. Nikola Tesla designed the electric motor entirely in his head; he could design and build complete machines and even mentally run them for days on end, then stop and disassemble them and examine the parts for wear!

We regularly flip our attention between the outer and inner worlds, living only in one place at a time. This can be a problem when brainstorming in a group when you go inside to think of your own ideas and miss ideas from other people which could trigger off even better ideas from you.
