As humans, we use the power of thinking to make scientific discoveries, develop technologies, manage social interactions, and transmit knowledge to the next generations. With the ability to think, we can trace back and discover the origin of the universe, the natural world, and ourselves. The content of this book, Mindsponge Theory, is part of that...

The book explores the nature, underlying causes, and the information processing mechanism of serendipity. It proposes that natural or social survival demands drive serendipity, and serendipity is conditional on the environment and the mindset, on both individual and collective levels. From Darwin’s evolution theory to Sun Tzu’s war tactics, major i...

Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter integrates major concepts presented in the preceding chapters into a new theory of serendipity. We formulate a framework that incorporates three aspects of serendipity: its conditionality, its nature as a survival skill, and its role in an information process incorporating the mindsponge mechanism and the 3D principles of creativity. W...

Video games have long been considered an effective educational tool. Environmental education studies have found that games positively affect the feeling of nature connectedness, producing pro-environmental attitudes and behaviors. With growing urbanization, video games also provide chances to interact with nature. During the COVID-19 lockdown, Nint...

This paper examines technological acceptance for automated emotion-sensing devices and non-conscious data collection (NCDC). We argue that conventional 20th century scholarship of human-machine relations is ill-equipped in the age of intelligent machines that sense, monitor, and tracks human sentiment, emotion, and feeling. We conduct a regression...

This chapter is dedicated to the hypothesis that serendipity is a survival skill. The motive behind serendipity is one’s desire to survive, and its outcomes increase one’s survivability. Humans are always under existential threats due to stress from the natural or social environment, so serendipity – the ability to notice valuable information in re...
Preprint
This chapter proposes that the occurrence of serendipity is not purely based on chance but conditional, despite the unexpectedness upon noticing and realizing the value of the “missing piece” information. A serendipity phenomenon requires many different conditions to be satisfied, including the environment and the current mindset. One needs to ask...
