[Please excuse this topic if it is in the wrong area but since it is so vague I threw it in here. If it is in the wrong forum please redirect it!! Ill try and save a copy too!] Has any one given the thought of someone with fresh ideas? I know so much has been done now in sciences, philosophies, and health that almost everything has been thought of and now most people work off of strong ideas. But more then that what about the few that dont go to school for sciences but study hard and devote their time theorizing about such scientific obscure ideas. Is their time considerd a waste? How much good can come from a silent girl who reads jung, and Michio Kaku, and other scientists and philosophers etc.? Who may love math but isn't trained well in it? Or does any one know of a famouse scientest who started around the age of 20 who now is well known for his ideas and mathmatics who studied in the begninning on his own? Sorry if this doesn't make sence or is useless!
