What are constraints? (And why are they essential for learning?)

“So many witnesses observed the utter freedom of his flights of thought, yet when Feynman talked about his own methods he emphasized not freedom but constraints.”

              -James Gleick (in reference to Richard Feynman’s use of constraints in physics)

Watch this video to see a highly imaginative use of constraints applied to the game of basketball (Apparently the Belgians are not only innovators in the world of soccer!)

Using prism glasses to alter perception

When used in conjunction with the mirror technique, prism glasses can not only make you more comfortable, but alter your perception in new ways. The result is a new realm of possibilities for generating new neural pathways–ones that are divorced from habitual ways of perceiving.

Using 2 mirrors for stroke, Bell’s Palsy, chronic pain and other neurological issues

Working with 2 mirrors can quickly stimulate non-habitual perception and consequently generate new neural pathways in the side of your brain affected by stroke, Bell’s Palsy, chronic pain or other neurological issues.
