Are ideas invented or discovered? What do you think?

    Oh my lord, this is not Quora place for pretending to be philosophers.

    Invented, as they are made by the person discovering them.

    Inventions are ideas given form, discoveries are merely documentation of something that exists.

    You talk like ideas can be fabricated, but ideas are the catalyst for creation.

    @ArcaneEye Ideas are immaterial goods, that can be created as well. A concept is invented, even though it technically is just an idea and not a thing.

    Neither it’s simply progressed by smart evaluation of existing knowledge and questioning problems that everyone ignores because “that’s how it works man, stop asking stupid questions”. Adding ideology to curiosity is pointless.

    Just ask “why” question and dig one thing as you progress your “why” will evolve. You will get tired very quickly by questioning why for a day but if you continue to ask same question about same problem everyday and try answering differently you will eventually come up with idea, go crazy or die trying.

    I like Feynman why video

    Ideas are not discovered or invented - they appear in our minds and are then shared or not.

    @vane There was an Indian mathematician that got impressions or actual equations by conversing with his god during dreams. We are still discovering how to apply those equations to this day. So I think some ideas may be being dispersed in ways maybe we don't understand. Some kind of cosmic database. I also think Albert Einstein discovered things in his dreams as well. Maybe it is a place to think things through or maybe something else.

    Ideas are the product of discovering problems that need to be fixed or processes that could be streamlined. Inventions are the product of those ideas coming into fruition.

    So technically neither, they're just ideas 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Read "big magic" by Elizabeth Gilbert. It has a very unique perspective on the origin of ideas. You won't regret spending your time on it, I promise. Listen to the audio book of you don't have time to read.

    @uyouthe Oh, somebody's interested in Vuephab after all? Honestly, I've frozen the activity on this project, because of priority on two others: [REDACTED] for managing Enovia database, NosenStory. I came to the conclusion that these both are in more demand. 😅

    @Demolishun before he started writing anything friend of Ramanujan gave him mathematic book which he studied. That book inspired him to writing own equations. Some of first equations were already present in the world of science but it wasn’t in book so he rediscovered them.

    So don’t assume anything mystical. He was just poor person with high scientific intelligence. I believe there are many persons like him Today but because we just don’t give a fuck about anyone except those with money most of them are probably dying from hunger or resigned from their intellectual potential due to various circumstances.

    I can even write that most of those that are teaching on universities are piece of shit that appeared there just due to rich parents or pure fortunate coincidence called luck or karma.
    Of course some of them are brilliant let’s say 20% to be Pareto principle complete.

    Technically, if it's possible, it's a discovery.

    The concept of invention is purely based on context.

    I'm on the discovered train here...
