I personally think one of the greatest and most dynamic inventors of all time was Tesla... and a lot of his ideas came from some kind of flash spells.
I don't recall them being described as seizures but some type of distorting episode... or so I read.
Einstein said ideas come from God.
There are actually a number of people who refuse to credit very profound ideas like this to their self.
They often accredit it as some type of gift, if not one from God.
Between us and the inventors, maybe they should have the biggest say concerning where the ideas came from.
The thing is... it's all a gift... every idea, every resource... it's all a compilation of works. This is why no one is really more deserving than
others but in our world, some are more deserving FROM BIRTH.
This is wrong.
What if you were an apprentice for an inventor and the inventor thought of something great for you to build upon before his death... and years went by
where you could chose to use the idea to help a young person who lived very close to you... or you could sell it without leaking any details to anyone
to a company who would not tell you if they were ever actually going to use it.
If you help the child a life could be saved but your invention would spread like wildfire and only help others.... never profiting you.
Or you could sell it and buy yourself the house you wanted and there, you can say nice prayers for the boy in need.
It's already bad enough... the circumstances, Now what if I told you that this boy was reincarnated from the inventor.
Not only are you not helping him, but it wasn't even YOUR idea and you're not going to benefit him with his own idea.
How are you supposed to know such things?
Because we all come from the same mire and the gift belongs to all of us. We built it, we compiled it... but we don't even know who the hell we
We have been all things... down to tiny amoebas and we were lifted up by love, sacrifice and struggle.
Humans did not do all of this, they did not make this world, they did not make the animals, but they rode in on the animals backs. Do they give the
animals credit for their achievements? No, but they couldn't have done it without them.
It all belongs to all of us.... and we should share it... and that includes the technology these assholes hide copyrights on.
I somewhat understand your frustration about giving a human credit, but I really think you are hyperconcentrating on those of us who feel that WAY too
much credit is being given to humans and they can afford to take some piss as it just might build some character because you cannot really say that
humans don't get credit for doing things on their own. The real problem is they get ALL the credit.
Your going to talk to some people who will exercise the opposite for good measure and for good reason.
Humans can't have all the credit. When humans can learn that they cannot have all the credit, maybe they will not be talked like that by some. The
real question is, when are humans going to give out other credit where other credit is due... because I'm not seeing. What I actually see is stuff
like faked artifacts depicting a Neil degrasse looking character in a modern day astronaut suit pretending to be an ancient alien that NASA seemed to
pimp out for themselves on TV for funding by using one of the only decent researchers on alien artifacts as their whore. That's what I see. All KINDS
of stuff like that.
We have ETs on this planet... I've seen one. I firmly believe there was an important mission. Where's the credit, where's the disclosure.
No, people are not going to stop talking about this and the lesson here is not the damage it does to some people's egos... The important lesson is
about CRUELTY and INJUSTICE and LIES.
So, it offends you. It threatens your humanity. Trust me when I say you'll recuperate.
ETs who are pushed away from connection with the REST OF LIFE and prostituted for their knowledge on the hopes that maybe one day they'll have the
same rights as humans like they are some dirty, yet very important useful secret will most likely never forget such an experience... ever... that is
if they actually survive being shot down out of the sky, losing their loved ones prior to be detained in mind numbing isolation.
Sorry if that threatens your confidence as a human.
Seriously, what is YOUR problem with possibly having to give an ET credit for a thing... or two?
