Welcome to the Escapism tutorial
This web page is a tutorial on just one part of a free training web site on brainstorming.
How to use the Escapism technique
With Escapism you can propose the wildest, most outrageous and preposterous things you can imagine. You use true escapism where there are no morals, rules, etiquette, laws or standards. You escape the physical limitations of the world to see what your ultimate solution would be. You should not limit yourself by anything except your own imagination, and even this you should push.
Your mission in this technique is to write down the wildest, most ridiculous, stupid, wacky ideas you can come up with to solve the probortunity. They do not have to be practical, possible or even sensible.
Once you have done this, and only when you have finished, should you look back at the ideas you have generated. Then you should look for ways in which all or part of these ideas could be made practical. Think of the benefits you could gain by using the idea and work out how you can achieve the same thing in reality. How could you modify the suggested solution to make it work? How could you get the same effect? What changes in the world would you need to make the idea possible and how can you make those changes happen?
Example of using Escapism:The probortunity is : Preventing burglary
Stimulus: Use bananas
Stimulus: Have a crossbow which shoots intruders in the head when they come through the front door.
Stimulus: Windows and doors which lock themselves as burglars approach.
Please try this technique for yourself and you will certainly improve at coming
up with new ideas.
