Those who claim that our “culture always borrows from the past” would have us discount the possibility of an original thought or expression, a concept which, in turn, does injustice to such thinkers and creators as Einstein, Schrödinger, Michelangelo, Da Vinci, Monet, Mozart and Beethoven. The fact that such creative genius can be rare does not eliminate its possibility, nor its probability. A world devoid of original expression is a dark world indeed, and not one that we as a society should wish upon ourselves.
