Try learning about Lateral Thinking. An excellent method of approaching ideas from multiple directions..

Sounds like a kind of twisted koan.

Like, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, how do you know the tree fell" type of thing.

Or is that Vertical Thinking? ;)

No that's aerial molecular energy ;)

I love lateral thinking questions, my favourite (probably because we got it) goes:

When leaving a boat, why do divers always roll over the side of a boat backwards?

The obvious answer being so that they don't smash the glass in their masks....

The correct answer is: If they're sitting on the side of a boat and they were to roll forwards they would end up inside the boat :) Love it!

Or:

Q: Why do chicken coops always have two doors?

A: If they had four doors, they'd be sedans.

So, if they had three doors would they be hatch backs? And if they were hatch backs would all the chickens be hens? (you know. . . .hatch. . . .hens. . ) :hmm:
