To develop a theory or product for the world – one of the most worthwhile dilemmas. Not that either need to be grand but valuable and helpful for some. Sometimes this is all I care about in life.
I can be so rigid when it comes to that. But it’s difficult to see any justification for life, other than to end ahead of where you started.
Not necessarily materially, but internally. Ah that’s right, that brings up the paradox of life that’s had me thinking recently… aim for external contribution, while never forgetting that the final score card is graded only on character development.
An inventor is more or less broken into thirds: scientist, technologist, and artist.
Science explicates natural laws. Technology applies science to real-world scenarios. Artistry critiques the current situation and erects a path toward the future.
