Everyone knows that brainstorming is a big buzz word today in business, and for
good reason. Without fresh
ideas, marketing and problem solving gets harder and harder. ParaMind makes
one of the leading brainstorming
programs on the market, and it is the only brainstorming program used by
both scientists and businesses. See
some of our feedback below.
With 3 1/2" diskette and documentation. New copies from manufacturer.
Version 2.3 -- A $59.95 value.
From Inc. Magazine "ParaMind Brainstorming Program. A great way to
brainstorm ideas on almost any topic."
From Ziff Davis: Paramind Brainstorming Program: Just the thing for the
sole proprietor, this program is an idea
multiplier. You enter them and the program replaces words or fills in ideas
to help you expand your horizons. The
AutoMerge feature will generate up to 100 pages of sentences related to
your initial idea.
ParaMind works differently than any other writer's helper on the market.
ParaMind was built on the new idea of
brainstorming by getting every idea that can be expressed in language by
"meaningfully exhausting the interactions
of words" in any given subject area. Unlike other brainstorming programs,
you can configure ParaMind to suit
your individual needs.
ParaMind was created to help businesses, technical specialists, and writers
of all kinds. It can also teach young
students about grammar concepts while helping them develop their own ideas.
It works with related word chains
that are broken down into the parts of speech. The user picks their own
words from their own sentences and the
program replaces and merges them for up to a hundred pages of new ideas.
ParaMind is a serious yet fun program that operates on the principle of
generating new text from your text. It is
totally configurable and can be used to logically expand any idea. It comes
with a database of 450 related word
chains, and you can add as many of your own as you like. You can paste in
text from any Windows, Unix or
Mac program into its editor to logically expand the text in infinite ways.
In a few minutes or less of key clicks one sentence or paragraph is turned
into up to 100 pages of related
sentences. It's a great and easy to use creativity tool.
ParaMind copies any text you type or paste into its screen and
systematically merges your text with new words.
The words are all related, such as adjectives related to sight, or adverbs
related to walking. In the text that you
type or paste in, a word or two is selected where these new words will fit
in, in the way that you want. The result
is a new listing of your idea changed in several fascinating ways.
"A truly GREAT program!" -- Don Davis
"Paramind is a trusted workhorse, friendly sidekick and a powerful verbal
tool. I've used it to "unpack" ideas into
their comprising components by, for example, using a keyword and follow
certain "threads", as it were. Example
-- "relationship is based on mutual trust" turned - after some *massive*
selection - five or six stunners!"
"I have also used Paramind to form "neural threads" - a line, or stream, of
ideas that are seemingly unconnected,
yet prove to be able to open some mental block. Example -- I've done some
work on the use of DNA testing -
and using PM I came up with a whole range of ideas related to DNA - such as
hereditary problems, historical
"urban legends" and much more!"
"I'm a content editor and 'creative contentsmith' on Africa's largest
Content Hub (come see us -
http://iafrica.com). We have over 10 million access per month."
"We serve content in units of information (for example - a news item) and
these units form a single content thread
within "neural" contextual networks. PM is great for this purpose because
it unpacks sentences so that each word
can be replaces with another word that's semantically equal to it on a
vertical level. It helps with the process of
brainstorming all creative / lateral choices involved in the kind of work I

I am a researcher/artist from Brazil. My work is strictly academic. I am
very interested in Paramind, as a process,
as a linguistic theory.

I have long admired your software. It is ingenious! Jan Justesen
"Now Paramind is appearing. It's a new type of genetic engineering but of
sentences. The Charm of "Paramind"
appears because it gives soul to the computer. We get a strong feeling that
the computer is no longer a machine
because the written screens are never the same. By choosing words which
describe feelings or beauties of nature,
the sensations I've been speaking about increase."
"The exhaustion of contexts producing the reciprocal influences between
meanings of words which is discovered
by the exhaustion of the interaction of words. To give ideas by increasing

Tonio has an entire web page created which is dedicated primarily to his
work with ParaMind. He has written
over a hundred pages of theory in which the ParaMind program and ParaMind
theory play a key role.

"I am looking forward to really starting to use Paramind more. The manual
is very helpful and I'm enjoying
reading about the philosophy behind Paramind."
Peter Burwash International
"ParaMind is an extremely unique program. I write as a hobby, and when I
get writer's block or can't think of a
topic, I just fire up ParaMind, type whatever I'm thinking, and expand it.
A great creativity booster with a neat
interface. It was definitely worth my registration."

I am interested in your brainstorming product for a project I am working
