A Matter of Perspective
It’s not from the known, but the unknown, that creativity and inventiveness are born.
In yet another message from “The Universe” this one caught my attention because it really makes sense. If we work from only what we know, then nothing new would ever be created.
I think the world would be pretty boring if nothing new ever happened. Granted, there are probably millions of things that have been invented that I don’t know about, but our creative minds would dry up if there was nothing new to think about or invent.
Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes that there is nothing new under heaven, but I like to think that there is a lot of new and new yet to be discovered!
There is still so much that is unknown and still so many people who are curious to find out about new things that I don’t know that there won’t ever be something new to discover.
It’s fun if you think about it.
I mean, I don’t care about the mating cycles of mosquitos, but at some point, that information was studied and it probably helped create some repellent that works to keep those nasty blood-suckers away.
I don’t know a lot of things, but I am grateful for those whose curiosity leads to new discoveries and advances.
I am glad I don’t have to wash clothes by hand. I am glad for the invention of air conditioning and heating. Without exploring the unknown we wouldn’t have these things.
I am still staring at the blank page to write my book (as I talked about previously) but I am grateful for the person who invented the computer so that I could capture my thoughts and ideas and share them globally.
