How To Go Creative: A Is For Aha, Ha ha and Ahh

A is for Aha, Ha ha and Ahh, three dimensions of creative intelligence. The creativity theorist Arthur Koestler gave us these. Aha is a sense of insight, when we move beyond what we formerly knew: the Yes! Eureka! I get it! moment. Ha-ha is our sense of the absurd, the way we laugh when opposites combine, waking us out of our usual, singular way of seeing. Ahhh is the peace and freedom we feel when we sense our interbeing with others, with something beyond ourselves.
