Hi Harv,

I recently looked at a book full of nursery rhymes and found almost none seemed to offer physics models!

You know what "free association" is?

Edward de Bono (who invented the phrase "lateral thinking") tells how you can invent stuff just by bumping words into other words. Example: clock radio.

Let me try: I'll bump "car" into "bird": wonder what I could do with that? How about a mechanical bird! Voila: invent the aeroplane. Oh, that's been done. How about: put a float in a Christmas parade that looks like a bird.

I allow ideas to meet freely in my head; I allow all sorts of things to suggest ideas and connections to me.It so happened that some nursery ryhmes seemed to fit re: looking to map physics ideas. But Beatles songs can be good too.

I can see patterns that appear in many different ways.

My mapping of physics apparently WORKS spectacularly well. It also easily sheds light on new stuff (as I showed in "Curved Pentagons" post. Loop quantum gravity fits easily it seems.
