We think of a creative genius as a mysterious person who spontaneously creates ideas out of the blue. This is not so. This is not how a creative genius gets ideas. They get their ideas by working hard and incorporating deliberate thinking practices.
There is in the universe a vast order. It never forsakes you. I throw a coin into the air, and it returns and hits the floor every time. Because there is a vast order, all things can be separated and understood. Observe that when NASA sends up four rockets one-half second apart, their after images are approximately simultaneous. So we say that we se four rockets at the same time. This is the illusion of simultaneity. In the order of things, we attempt to comprehend spontaneously those things, which are not simultaneous.
