Newton

It’s been said that Newton’s inspiration for the theory of gravity came from watching an apple fall off a tree.

Do we have to sit around and wait for apples to fall off of trees in order to get a good idea? One might say that it would be wise to sit around trees in a windy environemnt in the hopes to get lucky. The
best way, though, is to actually be proactive and climb up and shake the tree whenever we need an idea. . . then see what happens. The process of lateral thinking does exactly that.
