The first step, and underlying mechanism, of science is pure and unconstrained ideation.
Without such, evidence is never sought.
Ideation becomes hypothesis, hypothesis is tested, evidence is carolled, further ideation is triggered.
Pure Ideators are indispensable.
Without ideators the world will be in control of the Reptile People forever. 🤣🤠🤔
Smother us ideators with hugs and energise us with pecuniary bonuses.
