I just had one! (An original thought). But I'm not so sure humanity is ready to hear my idea. So I'll wait a few years before sharing it.

Time travel and space travel (not like outer space, but more like if I were to disappear and reappear across the room an instant later)

I think those will be possible within a reasonable amount of time, but probably not this century.


I agree. But those aren't exactly examples of original thoughts. Both time travel and teleportation are ideas that have been around for a long time. They just haven't been realized yet. (Although, what amounts to teleportation takes place at the quantum level.)

Teleportation! Thank you for reminding me of what that was called. I couldn't remember for the life of me.

I was watching The Prestige the other night, that's why I was thinking of teleportation.

Time travel in and of itself may not be original, but the amount of information we learn from the past/future could be.

There may be original thought all the time which is summarily dismissed as ridiculous.

Original thought may not thinking I'd welcome but I'm sure tired of some of the old ways of thinking.

Even if there is original positive thought, it tends to take #s of people in agreement to bring about change.

We've done a lot (good or bad) with synthesis. Not new but new combinations that can add up to something new.

My point exactly!

To the OP: No, you cannot discover sonmething new about yourself that fundamentally changes anything.

Now, if you need to learn something that matters, learn something about everyone else.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

You all have got windows brain chip implants, which are always crashing. Your original thoughts come from head office.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Guess they forgot to tell Bill Buckley.
