Psycho-Dynamic Synthesis is a new and little known scientific method of producing meaning by the use of guided imagination and planned intuition. Use of the book will increase the mind power of the reader by freeing him from the usual limits of accidental subconscious synthesis of ideas. The resulting growth in ability to integrate responses to inner and outer stimuli makes it possible for your actions to be more decisive and more efficient. Meaning is created, and increased environmental control achieved, by bringing ideas together in the subconscious mind while it is free from the domination of the conscious mind. No use is made in this book of hypnosis or auto-suggestion. The conscious mind is kept alert, ready to receive and to utilize the newly formed or developed ideas.
Procedures of logical analysis attempt to find meaning by tearing a concept into pieces and bits that are small enough to allow the restricted conscious mind to encompass and understand them. Logi cal analysis, then, is exactly the reverse of creative synthesis in pro cedure and results.
Nearly every person to whom an idea is presented seems quite capable of destructive criticism, of seeing the slightest flaw, while missing most of the good qualities inherent in the idea. Creative synthesis is a virtue rarely expressed, because it requires inner harmony and a unified operation of the complex and little under stood subconscious mind.
It is not uncommon for a given individual to be quite effective as a solo worker in finding solutions to problems that are within the scope of his knowledge and ability. The same person will very often be ineffectual in utilizing the minds and experience of a group of people in finding solutions to one of the complex problems con fronting mankind today. The comprehension and use of the prin ciples and methods of Psycho-Dynamic Synthesis will enable the reader to mine the depths, not only of his own mind, but the minds of other persons even in groups of one hundred or more.
