Please keep in mind that I'm not a teacher and I've had to make some assumptions about the context of these sentences.
The following sentences are discussing how to be creative , but I cannot understand the meaning exactly. Can you help me?( especially the underlined parts)
1. Lifting barriers into place also plays a major part in helping the mind to control ideas rather than letting them collide at random.
In this context, I would say it means implementing some sort of system (probably described somewhere in the text this was taken from) to focus on one idea at a time. It's hard to tell exactly given the limited amount of information here.
2. Parameters act as containers for ideas, and thus help the mind to fix on them.
"Parameters" is another word for "barriers" in the previous sentence. This sentence is basically reinforcing the message in the previous sentence.
3. Once the new idea has been formed, it needs to be contained or it will fly away, so fleeting is its passage.
This means you can lose the idea quickly if a system isn't used to examine the idea thoroughly, on its own, without other ideas affecting it.
4. When the mind has brought the idea to fruition by thinking it through to its final conclusion, the parameters can be brought down and the idea allowed to float off and come in contact with other ideas.
When the idea is fully thought out, it can be joined with other ideas to possibly create even more solutions or ideas.
