The Landscape of Inca Empire terms is a random landscape of words about an empire located in South America from 1438 to 1533.

Machu Picchu, Lost City of the Incas

Centered at Cuzco, Peru, the empire at the time of the Spanish conquest (1532) dominated the entire Andean area from Quito, Ecuador, S to the Río Maule, Chile, extending some 2,000 mi (3,200 km). Although the Inca showed a genius for organization, their conquests were facilitated by the highly developed social systems of some of the kingdoms that they absorbed, such as the Chimu, and the established agrarian communities that covered the area of their conquest. The Inca empire proved short-lived: by 1533, Atahualpa, the last Sapa Inca, was killed on the orders of the Conquistador Francisco Pizarro.

High in the Andes Mountains of Peru, hidden by clouds, Machu Picchu is the most impressive and spectacular accomplishment of the Inca Empire.

This brainstorming technique is a mental exercise for producing ideas by right brain thinking (random, visual, subjective, emotional, holistic, intuitive, creative, divergent).

Brainstorming is a group creativity technique by which a group tries to find a solution for a specific problem by gathering a list of ideas spontaneously contributed by its members. The term was popularized by Alex Faickney Osborn in 1953 through the book Applied Imagination. In the book, Osborn not only proposed the brainstorming method but also established effective rules for hosting brainstorming sessions.
