Sitting by the fire, staring at the stains on the wall, imagining a battle scene, Leonardo da Vinci forcing a connection between two unrelated subjects, filling in the gap with new ideas – genius.
Natural for him, but we can make it happen and look like a genius even if we aren’t one. Such is the experiment of this blog. Connecting what doesn’t seem connected, randomly forcing together two unrelated things or concepts, finding a new idea in the discontinuity, growing, creating – looking like a genius!
I’ll return with what there is to be found when connecting the movie Memento with an unconnected concept blindly chosen from my hundreds of subjects.
