Lateral Thinking and Meta Thinking

Lateral thinking and meta thinking are related. As meta thinking is about thinking about thinking (…and so on). To be an effective lateral thinker you should think about your thought process.
To explain further we can look at the geometric analogy of lateral thinking. Based on lateral thinking principle, to make your new solution lateral you have to take a ‘lateral’ direction. If you are already a lateral thinker, taking one more lateral step might bring you to ‘parallel’ (90+90 degree will take you to parallel in a plane). To avoid this, look for other planes!
Think about a multi-dimensional space where you have ‘n’ orthogonal planes. To solve a problem, the thought is applied in orthogonal plans. The solutions will be completely from one plane or from combinations of tips from more than one plans which gives the complete solution.
To solve your problem, look for solutions / tips in many plans. This needs put constant effort to guide your thought process optimally to traverse optimum number of plans.
