Abstract

Thinking entails mental manipulation of images and concepts. What you do not see mentally may not be understood, and what you do not understand you might not be able to handle. To release or withhold implies manipulation. The techniques of handling thought by imagination are housed in the right hemisphere of the human brain. Understanding activates potentials. This underscores the vitality of wisdom and understanding; images enhance understanding making it tangible. Images are crucial to seeing as seeing is crucial to understanding. Whatever is actualized has been made visible (seen). Nothing can be purposively made visible without mental handling via thinking (manipulation). Potential must be seen, understood and worked out for it to be realized, actualized or released. Thinking skills should be taught to scientists and future leaders. Human development studies hold the key to Africa's mental liberation and development.
