Do you buy this idea from Mark Chussil?
A box is a frame, a paradigm, a habit, a perspective, a silo, a self-imposed set of limits; a box is context and interpretation.
We cannot think outside boxes. We can, though, choose our boxes.
We can even switch from one box to another to another.
Boxes get dangerous when they get obvious, like oft-told stories that harden into cultural truth. Letting a box rust shut is a blunder not of intention but of inattention.
Boxes are invisible until we look for them.
In other words: driving yourself to think "outside the box" is a box onto itself. The "outside box" is a box --- gasp!
