Thinking - Science

If we look for new ways to win at say...chess, and start by making moves that leave the board, I can predict the outcome with a high degree of certainty.

I don't think that's thinking outside the box, I think that's trying to solve problems that aren't there.

Sometimes I have the feeling a lot of pre-agendered organizations are doing the same.

Solving problems that aren't there.

Sometimes, if you have no way of answering a question, there's no need to add another turtle under the last, because the question didn't need to be asked in the first place.


Thinking outside the box doesn't bring about good science. You need to solve outside the box.


Thinking outside the box is easy.


120ThingsIn20Years cant remember if it's offending anyone with the turtle reference, but it doesn't think so, and it if it did, it was entirely unintentional.




Thinking - Bricks

Why didn't they make bricks a bit bigger to save a little time in construction?

Just a bit.

Say 20%.

I think that might have saved perhaps 5% in building time and cost.

I'm probably wrong because bricklayers and stonemasons know their stuff...but my question still stands...

Why didn't they make bricks a bit bigger to save a little time in construction?
