Quote from: SGOS on April 09, 2021, 06:04:19 AMAs a society, all we need to progress are just a few "thinkers" to parse out solutions to problems and put the solutions together in a way that moves the society forward.
Quote from: aitm on April 09, 2021, 07:56:01 AMTrue enough, and a position I have long held. Humans arenâ€™t as smart as we think we are. We are â€œmonkey see, monkey doâ€ but we are not â€œmonkey thinkâ€. Only a few of us can invent, only a few of us can really think, the rest simply watch what happens and repeat the actions and they think they are smart. I have often wondered how long humans existed before someone made the first straw basket. It most certainly was not a dozen at the same time. Go back 100,000 years and pluck those first â€œgeniusâ€™sâ€ out of the clan, we would still be using clubs.
