I discovered this mind trick a few years ago. First I thought it was working only for me, but after asking my friends, I saw they experienced the same. Now it's your turn .
For example, try to imagine the house where you would like to live in detail (windows, walls, etc.); be precise as much as possible. Then simply ask yourself if you have seen this house or its parts before.
When I did it, I was surprised because I couldn't imagine anything totally new. All those things I have seen or heard before - it's interesting, isn't it? Thinking about it, I came to the even more interesting question: do we create or just translate existing things? Try to give it a thought because it might change the way you live.
