Always Go For Gold!

Few people know that Sir Isaac Newton, along with being one of the best scientific minds the world has ever seen, was also an alchemist.  On the one hand he created the theory of gravity and on the other hand he was trying to turn lead into gold.

It may seem absurd to us now, but years ago it wasn’t clear whether alchemy was real or not.

So the question is; If Isaac Newton didn’t have the sort of mind that would explore the idea of alchemy, would he have created the theory of gravity?

Probably not.

So, if given the choice you should always choose to investigate ideas and concepts which have not yet been explored.  

You might not find gold, but you could discover something just as valuable.
