Why Would a Ph.D. Chemist Become A Brilliance Miner?

Why would I, as a recovering Ph.D. Chemist, embark on becoming a Brilliance Miner?

Here is a quick video of what I’m talking about (see the transcript below):

Greetings. Why would I, as a recovering Ph.D. Chemist, embark on becoming a Brilliance Miner? That is a question I get a lot. Now, Brilliance Mining is the process of pulling knowledge, experience, and wisdom out of someone’s brain and documenting it. It is done in such a way that knowledge can be handed off to somebody else so that we don’t necessarily need to have that person around all the time. Besides, that person isn’t going to be around at some point, that’s for sure. 

We make it possible to use that knowledge at a much greater level, and we make it immortal at the same time. That gives the person who has that knowledge a lot of freedom that they didn’t have before.

Why A Ph.D. Chemist – Why Me, Why Did I Come Up With This? 

  • I saw a need for it. 
  • I find it very interesting to learn what someone else has in their brain.
  • As scientists, we know about connecting dots and seeing how they hang together and build systems

That’s a strong component of this. It’s not just the extraction of that knowledge, but it is then to make it into a system that genuinely is transferrable.

  • You can’t just pull it out like a bowl of spaghetti and then throw it at somebody; that doesn’t work.
  • You have to actually line up the spaghetti cut them to the correct length so that it is possible to absorb it.
  • Therefore you also have to understand who is that target recipient, who is supposed to actually eat this spaghetti at the end to stick with that metaphor.

That’s my quick answer. See you soon. 🙂 

I’m Curious

How do you like that “spaghetti” metaphor?

Live Brilliantly,
