   they were not
    specifically

Based on an idea from Mike Anderson, NZ.
No piece of paper can
be folded in half more
     than 7 times.
   How could you find out?
The average person’s left
hand does 93% of the typing.

      How could you find out?
The short term memory
capacity for most people
is between 5 and 9 digits.

A tap drips at a rate of 10 drops
per minute into a large cylindrical
container. Each drop contains 5 ml
of water.

The cylindrical container is 1.5m
tall and 1.1m in diameter, with a
wall thickness of 50mm.
                                      1.1m
How long would it take
for the water to fill the
container?
                            1.5m

“Creativity is just connecting things.
When you ask a creative person how
they did something, they may feel a little
guilty because they didn’t really do it, they
just saw something. It seemed obvious to
them after a while.
That’s because they were able to connect
experiences they’ve had and synthesize
new things.”

Steve Jobs

“Overprotecting intellectual property is as as
harmful as underprotecting it. Creativity is
impossible without a rich public domain.
Overprotection stifles the very creative forces
it is supposed to nurture...

... Nothing today, likely nothing since we tamed
fire, is genuinely new: Culture, like science and
technology, grows by accretion, each new
creator building on the works of those who
came before”
