1. One of you presents the question. On the instant this is done,Whenever possible, this blurt-response should be an image-impression. If words reflexively come as the answer, go ahead and say them and then, in Step # 3 next, develop that response as if it were an image, as descriptively as possible. We trust pictures much more than we do words in this role, because sensory images are the working language of the parts of the brain we're trying to draw upon. Even if your first round or so is an experience of words only, this imagistic descriptive treatment will take hold and let you get future rounds of this process in images.
3. In pairs within your groups, develop your initial blurt response by turning it into a descriptive Image-Stream. All of that Image Stream consists of the answer to the initial presented question and its context. Unlike regular Image-Streaming, squeeze the time down to a minute or so per image-answer per participant, but be sure to get enough detail that you can "spot the overlaps" in Step #4....Also look for a practical "Step One" to implementing that answer or understandingdon't settle for merely a generality.
Also ask yourself, "What more do I/we need to know in this context?"

The one surest of all ways to get our left brain's expectant editing out of the way of getting at our better answers is to present the question in such a way that the left brain doesn't have a clue as to what's being asked! That way it doesn't know which way to bias your experience and response.
Here we take advantage of the fact that much of your brain is far more sensitive to subtle cues and clues than our "loud left" is. There is trace print-through on questions written onto folded-up slips of paper; there is body english, there is subvocalization, there is high-order predictive inference and pattern recognitiona wealth of information telling your subtler faculties what the question is that's being asked for them to answer.
Fortunately, that subtler, more comprehensive 99.99999% of our mind is more sensitive, not only wiser and brighter than we think we are. There are more than enough subliminal cues floating around to account for how that richer part of our awareness is able to pick up what the question is and show us the answer. And while it is doing sobecause your loud conscious mind, not knowing what the question is, hasn't a clue which way to censor, warp, bias or edit what's being shown youyou can get your data cleanly and undistorted from your subtler resources. It is precisely that which makes High Thinktank so remarkably accurate. It's the one format where your loud left brain won't get in the way and edit your answers to suit its expectations as to what those answers "ought to be"!
Crucialdo not try to "psyche" what the question isl Just look in and see/read what your answer is to the question being asked you in the concealed or folded-in piece of paper. Key parts of your subtler self couldn't care less about ESP games but do care about such issues.
1. One of you presents the question silently, or in hidden form such as a folded-in piece of paper bearing the question within, a slip of paper that gets handed around but whose contents are not consciously seen. If the question is being asked silently, a nod or light snap of fingers is appropriate to indicate to partners the end of asking and to elicit the imagistic snap response.After identifying those common themes or elements,
5. The original asker "reveals" the formerly silent or folded-in "hidden" question.The more important the question, the more that people have already developed conscious, even reflexive, opinions which tend to prevent the fresh perceptions needed for an effective answer. This is one reason we remain "stuck" on the greatest human problems and issues, and why great national and world problems remain unsolved for decades or centuries. Even more does this appear to be the case with the most basic issues in science and technology.
Only your own practiced use of the High Thinktank method can effectively determine for you the actual relationship between the answers gotten from your more sensitive resources and the silent or hidden questions asked. Is it anything more than provocative random force-fit? If it is, then you are also looking at your own ability to find effective answers to virtually any question or problem in the world!
Whether it is some sort of common Universal Mind you are tapping into for these insights, as some believe, or whether it's your own Universal Mind from all the awarenesses you have ever had, loud and subtle, past and present at this level it makes no difference. You get these understandings in either case. See a remarkable instance of this in Innate Ethics.
