L'esprit s'attache par paresse
(Our reason burdened with laziness
The human mentality has such the evolution conditioned peculiarity as narrow field of consciousness (NFC), what formely, for forefathers and more ancient human forbears, had been an advantage in survival because of high-velocity behaviour reactions correlating with NFC, but now, for modern people, in the world many more complex and becoming still more complicated, though in conditions more secure (as the average duration of people's life now is over 3 to 4 times as long as that of our forbears' 3-5 thousand years ago), have got a shortage, an evolutionary inherited burdenness of the human race, what may be diagnosticated as the shortage of panoramic thinking (SPT).
there is a persistent necessity to introduce a new notion -- the panoramic
Many authors used visual image of panorama to speak on the panoramic thinking in spatial and generalized spatial senses without definitions. The earliest publications were "Rupert's Country: a Culture's Tapestry" (1946) by Davis Clark and "Organizing Management Work" by Carl Heyei (1960). It were as well precedents of introduction PT as the opposite of a tunnel thinking and at analyzing technical decisions in the astronautics. PT was used as well at juridical science, for mapping, including to visualize cognitive processes. The direction to visualization of cognitive process got its generalization and development in researches by Heiner Benking, presented in his report A Metaparadigm or Sharable Framework (Cognitive Panorama) at Conference “A New Space for Culture and Society” (Prague, 1996) where Cognitive panorama (3D-Space/Time) was determined as “new and common spaces for individuals, culture and society”, and means of computer and communication technologies turned at this of essential significance.
Thus, in contradistinction to H. Benking phenomenological definition, panoramic thinking has to do with individuals only. Moreover, it was defined as psychological notion related to necessary overcoming by them their evolution predetermined backwardness.
Let us mark that PT introduced in 1995, may counted as a new a scientific notion inspite of earlier precedents of its use, because the image of panorama in it for the first time was connected with the main substratum of thinking -- the cortex of head brain, and the manner of thinking itself -- with the overcoming of the human mentality's evolution conditioned peculiarity.
An idea to develop the PT by educational means appears to be quite natural, because the modern world is overloaded with information, and now to know how it to find and to use in creative way has more importance than remember "just in case". Moreover, the idea is turning more and more into the first imperative of humankind’s surviving.
Arguments to use PT as a scientific concept:
- PT it is
new concept having logical reasons to be introduced (because going to
overcome evolutionary emburdeness of human consciousness, NFC, being synonym
of SPT, does mean to begin developing PT, i.e. as a new psycho-phisiological
concept as well);
In science, learning and teaching, in way of life, analytical activities and conduct a person reveals abilities to think panoramically, if he/she:
live mind attuned on creavity, including creation of humour;
A person reveals SPT, if he/she:
*is not containing
In a country where PT is becoming more and more distributed one can foresee 2 groups of consequences of this – anti-negative and positive ones.
and pacification of interpersonal relations;

January 2008 reply on Panoramic Thinking by Satish Kumar (India)
My answer to Satish on 1/16/2008
Your stimuli to do something as being outer for me are stronger then mine own, that is why I am as a lazy boy grateful you for your proposal. It'd be better even to elaborate in-detail programs for the called levels of education (by the way, you left out inside-womb level of one's existing when the one's mother being correspondingly educated might attune her future kind's thinking in panoramic manner), but you see, I would be needed then to collaborate with pedagogues and to waste many time. Well, I'll do my best to write merely notes how to develop PT at different levels of educations.
Thank you for your understanding of my thought that the very human survival problems and all obstacles to better life were, are and will be connected with imperfectness of human minds.
2014/10/25 post: Taking a part at Linkedin.com group on Systems Thinking discussion
Is some thinking over Systems Thinking? I affirm it is Panoramic Thinking to be realized when you produce overcoming the all-human evolution backwardness what may be called Shortage of Panoramic Thinking (SPT). Its signs are seen everywhere and one may even say: ours is SPT civilization. Obviously you are panoramic thinker when you give out systems decision… but at condition that your system has been chosen correctly. (BTW a question: do global problems obviously make up a system?)
