As a child, I remember eating clouds of cotton candy, marveling at the simplicity of interwoven sugar, and wondering - “How did the first person ever think of making this stuff?” Seriously, who out there decided that centrifuged sugar would be its own food group?
Perhaps that’s the true genius behind the advancements we enjoy in a civilized world. Some whacked out nutcase wakes up in the middle of the night and shouts, “Injecting Clostridium botulinum bacteria (to produce botulism) into your face will make you beautiful!” Now that’s pure genius!
No, forget that example. That guy actually was in fact a whacked out nutcase.
But it does make one wonder. How do people think up the bizarre inventions and practices that advance (or sometimes curtail) civilization as we know it? Now, I’m not talking about grandiose inventions like the light bulb, the cell phone, the airplane, or the nose hair clipper. I’m referring to the more subtle creative imagination that keeps pushing the envelope of life.
