W HAT IS DI ?
Suppose you had a box… What could you do with it? Sure you could put things in it, but think bigger. Make something? Like a tower? That’s a little better. How about an objective? How could you make it float? What did you think of, a boat? Why are you floating on water ? Who said the box was cardboard? Who said it wasn’t the size of a house? It’s whatever you want it to be if you think outside of the box. Let’s try floating with a hovercraft
