“Necessity is the mother of all inventions.”
Scientists realized that humanity can be served through scientific experiments. Their inventions are inspired by derivatives of nature, not from fairy tales. Givenchy sketched an aero plan which was an aero dynamical and mechanical form of a bird.
Thomas Edison invented the light bulb which was an electrical and thermal derivative of the sun.
Women of 18 and 19th centuries created 50 life-related inventions. If they would have been thinking about fairy tales these inventions would not be possible.
• Inventor: Josephine Cochran
• Year/period: 1872Disposable diaper
• Inventor: Marion Donovan
• Year/period: 1950When these fairy tales have not affected people of the 20th century then how can they affect the lives of the people of the 21st century who are born and grown up in a digital world where technology is growing day by day. They believe in facts and logic. 1 to 4 years kids watch fairy tales and let’s assume that they get infatuated for some time, but this temporary illusion can not affect their lives because their lives are driven by their parents
They cherish the characters of superheroes and the Disney world just in a costume party but on returning home they totally refuse their mothers by saying that MAMA they don’t have fake superpowers to finish the cleaning of their rooms in just one-hour deadline.
For them, their perspective of reality is to groom themselves to get a job in multinational companies, advertising agencies, and hotel management.
So, the secret of success is the acceleration from the comfort zone to a growth zone that is filled with hurdles and challenges. it can be dealt with through real struggle, and not from any magic or fairy tale dilemma.
