Bonus message for SOT Lateral Thinkers: Meet Sir Gus :-)

As a special bonus message I’d like you to meet Sir Gus Nossal who is a great friend of the School of Thinking and is a founding member of our SOT Science Symposium which meets quarterly to discuss issues relating to thinking and science.

Sir Gus is also one of Australia’s greatest science lateral thinkers of international reputation. Most importantly he is a very nice gentleman. I love being in his company and you always learn and laugh at the same time.

In the July 2018 symposium the question under discussion was: How can placebos work in the triune human brain? Click for more info

I recently found this wonderful video (27 mins) which is full of great stories and allows you to go for an intimate joyride with Sir Gus. Yes, the sound is quite scratchy but, no matter, there are sub-titles and it’s a fun interview and will lift your spirits and inspire you, as a lateral thinker. The episode is called Scientists in a $h!tBox Spelling it Out and just click here and fasten your seatbelt …


If you would like to get your Lateral Thinking Certificate – Advanced (LTC-A) from the School of Thinking just complete all 10 DFQs from these lessons and email me requesting your Certificate.

  1. I’ve enjoyed the journey through the x10 thinking lessons. Thankyou for the opportunity and tools that I have incorporated into my daily thinking.
    I look forward to receiving my Lateral Thinking Certificate – Advanced (LTC-A) from the School of Thinking.

  2. How good is Sir Gus – would have been a fun lab to work in that’s for sure. This has been an interesting course to think about thinking and I have several things to take away and practice, so that flicking the CVS2BVS switch becomes more natural.

  3. I enjoyed my adventure into how my PFC operates – particularly loved the TPF activities and am trying them at home now too. I would appreciate having the certificate forwarded. Thanks for the opportunities over the last 10 (plus one) sessions.

  4. Really enjoyed the bonus interview with Sir Gus, thank you for the course Michael. Please send the Certificate.

  5. Thanks Michael for the x10 course. Really appreciate the challenge to think differently. will be switching from cvs 2 bvs as often as possible from now on. Interesting chat with Sir Gus.

    I will like the certificate sent. Cheers
