The process of Invention is extremely interesting. From somewhere you get a spark of an idea and recognize that it's possible to create something new, different or improved.
Often it is an amazing variant of something that already exists, like the Apple II computer, not the first computer by decades and not even the first small, affordable computer by years. Virtually all creators build on the successful and failed results of others; this in no way diminishes their achievements.
Very often when you present your invention to someone not part of the process, the response flashes between the ignorant and the naive.
Rarely can others understand the creative drive or imagine the market need.
Creative people somehow have freed themselves from the "can't be done", absolved themselves from "the fear of failure" and rarely worry about "the risk of losing it all". They are in love with what they do in the deepest sense. Their days, nights and even dreams are in the creative mode, forever bonded to seeking new approaches and solutions.
The creators, big or small, successful or unsuccessful, deserve to be honored more than they are.
