Late at night, by candle light, John Larkin
This has nothing at all to do with truth, design or ideas. It's pure
pointless speculation going nowhere in a hurry. This far you've made a
great effort of avoiding coming with anything tangible. So has most
everyone else, so that's OK.
I really hope you don't think of your designs as you think of the
origins of life, the universe and beer.
I do find thinking of random assembly of organic molecules far more
reasonable than some kind of supernatural intervention.
If it exists, it's natural. And your opinion of reasonable is not
going to retroactively change the history of the universe. Most
historically "reasonable" science has been dumped.
You seem to start out by reasoning about some entity made of something
simpler coming with the superior DNA based organisms.
I didn't invent that concept. It's called "evolution." But the
previous entity may have been *more* complex, not less. There's
evolutionary precedent for that, too.
Are your designs more evolved you?
I'm in the business of inventing things. You don't invent things by
clinging to orthodoxy and approaching every new idea as a target for
Ever brainstorm? It's a team sport, as complex and as hard to learn as
soccer or baseball. Part of its process is wandering through the nooks
and crannies of the M-dimensional solution space, exploring
uncritically, playing with outlandish ideas. And that goofy path often
leads back to something concrete, brilliant, and profitable.
The evolution thing isn't all that importent to me. The interesting
thing is how many "electronics designers" struggle so hard to avoid
speculation, as if ideas threaten them, as if their life consists of
plucking up handbook schematics and reference designs and tweaking
them a little.
No speculation is pointless is it has the potential to get you
It shocks me how few people here are unwilling to riff on ideas. No
wonder I make so much money.
