I get what I would call original thought all the time.
Here are some of my older ones when it comes to inventions.
Pay as you go fuel top up cards that allow you to buy petrol at capped prices.
(More to that one obviously and no its not a credit card)
In ear wireless headphones, dont know if someones done that one yet but I thought of that a long time ago.
I do have an idea for energy but the technology doesnt exist yet.
My favourite though was a submarine with electric windows but all the test subjects died during testing im afraid.
I think you might be underestimating people in general, there are lots of intelligently minded people its just our education system that makes people
have this fascination with copycat quoting. Bugs the heck out of me sometimes.
Call me cruel here but the only way you could ever find out if there is such a thing as collective thought is to take a kid from shortly after birth
and put them in a room alone with nothing a drip with essential foods etc. Once they reach adulthood, see what they have come up with.
I dont really see that working though to be honest and its pretty sadistic.
Wonder if thats an original thought
