Douglas R: This post is reblogged from Rebecca T. Dickson. Enjoy this great post!
The story goes that some U.S. Patent official resigned years ago because everything already exists. His alleged reasoning was since every idea has already been generated, no one needed a patent office.
Though this rumor still exists – and I giggle at the thought – it reminds me of something a college professor told me.
“Only eight story lines exist in the history of the world. No story is ever unique. Therefore, nothing new is ever created. We’re simply regurgitating when we write.”
