The Critical Mind is learned and skilled in critical thinking techniques. It is aware of the natural delusion and bias of the human mind and implements thinking tools to compensate for the mind's natural desire to manufacture evidence that supports it's own beliefs.
The Creative Mind takes on the human need for self-expression. It builds off the critical mind by examining and exploring the unknown while purposefully taking apart and restructuring known information into an elegant, artistic, and aesthetic solutions.
While the Critical and Creative Minds comprise the two sides of human intellectualization, Zen Mind moves beyond thinking and frees itself from structure, expectation or configuration. The Zen Mind is a state of being that eliminates bias and learned conditioning.
