Self-Estrangement Methods for Getting out of Mental Local Minima, or: 'Thinking Outside the Box'
In the course of working in Exposed Arts' 2020 Research group, Intelligence Debiased, I shared one of my working methods: self-estrangement. In Part I, I give a tutorial on how to implement the performance method as a form of 'brainstorming' or 'thinking outside the box'. In Part II, I demonstrate the method by thinking about the topic of our research, non-human forms of intelligence, through the perspective of a fictional character.
