“NO is the basic tool of the logic system.
YES is the basic tool of the belief system.
PO is the basic tool of the creative system.”


Our minds act as a patterning system creating ideas out of experience. Once created, these ideas become firmly established and control the way we look at situations. Yet all patterning systems demand a method for breaking out of an established pattern in order to see things in a different way. Without such a method there can only be continuity of the old ideas which become more and more obsolete. Creativity provides a means for change, but it is haphazard and we wait for unusual events or unusual minds to stimulate new ideas. We rely on this passive waiting because we have never developed creativity as part of our thinking system but instead have put our efforts into developing the YES/NO system which is anti-creative. PO provides a mechanism for changing ideas.
