Is it difficult to propose a new idea, something to invent or discover? Is it destiny elected? What you need to open a brand new? Case? Knowledge? Perseverance? What else? Interesting questions and they should understand. Rousseau and Spinoza is very welcome regular purposeful meditation on the problem. Ponder, turn it this way and that – and, look, come across a solution. What place and what time of day chosen to purposefully meditate about the problem – a matter of taste and habit. For example, Dekartunravilos think immediately after waking up in bed.
Of course, the famous philosophers have not denied the 'insights' and 'insight'. But here the unexpected happens, so the 'Guaranteed' otkrytiigovorit not necessary. For example, Charles Gudir invented a method of vulcanization of rubber, accidentally dropped the rubber mixed with sulfur on a hot stove. Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin by carelessness – badly washed tubes. Unfortunately, a regular 'by thinking' on the problem it can not be solved. Otherwise, everything would be easy – just to encourage the efforts of professional 'dumateley' to get some time 'Guaranteed' otkrytieili invention.
It is even easier – to entrust the 'thinking' computer. He never gets tired, he does not need food, he can 'think' 24 hours a day. It is also true that apart from constant thinking problems as well requires a certain chutzpah and courage to deny authority. And this is a purely human qualities, associated with high energy individual that is typical for people gifted or enthusiastic. As is known, famous inventor Robert Wood secret of the so-called 'pink' gold pharaohs, his secret for a hundred years, has allowed in the hotel room with his wife's manicure set, stove and nail polish. Development new ideas can go carefully and long. Everyone knows the author of the theory of evolution, Charles Darwin, who worked on it for twenty years. Much less is known, that the first foundations of the theory of evolution Darwin did not set out as a young biologist Alfred Russel Wallace. The main tenets of the theory of evolution he advanced during the week and was preparing to publish them shortly before Darwin. Authoritative British scientists have asked Wallace to give priority to Darwin – in a kind of Darwin studied the theory of evolution earlier and longer. And so we can not say for sure as the 'right' to address the problem – hope for 'inspiration' or methodically and consistently to experiment. Yet the fact remains that the world's scientists are much more able to think logically and beautifully set out, but do not make discoveries. Science move basically loners. What is involved here – wit, observation, and a special mentality and way of thinking, like Edison? It is still unknown. Another curious fact – from inventors ideas are much more likely than ordinary mortals. But the most interesting that the opening is not necessarily committed to the facts or the outcome experiments that are inconsistent with existing scientific theories. Often enough to take a new look and interpret the existing provisions, make 'inventory' is already known patterns. So Einstein found a new 'look' on all the known facts, which were then fitted to the theory of Newton, and gave them a new interpretation. But Einstein's example gives a practical way to obtain new knowledge – new knowledge may provide another systematization and interpretation of the already known. That's all!
