Missing Worlds

  • Ruth Richards
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Creativity and Culture book series (PASCC)


Beginning with a sudden awareness that startled the author (see vignette, over 188,000 views on in March, 2018), one finds ways we humans have “blinders” on, and miss worlds of experience “out there” including the brilliance of the present moment. Also considered are states of consciousness, conceptual frames, attentional issues, preconceptions, memories, expectations and more. Meanwhile we honor our human meta-awareness and potential for self-reflection and change, allowing expansion of our creative vision (across multiple sensory modalities and ways of knowing).
