“It’s between those two places that the most remarkable, creative ideas are found. Like flying in an airplane, or using a phone that can connect to the Internet wirelessly, or being able to change the course of history with just a few words.”
This one has even more subtlety and possible meaning than most of the blog spam I receive (which is usually highly meaningful already). It my even be beyond my intellectual abilities to make sense of it.
Between which two places do they mean? The comment was in response to o post about automatic reminders, so I guess it must be the place of being reminded to do something and the place of being reminded to not do something.
In my case, the reminder to “blog nothing” was definitely more effective in motivating me to blog something. I wonder if I made a new reminder “between those two places” I could do even better. I think I’ll try that.
The examples of “the most remarkable, creative ideas” are also unexpected and therefore remarkable. Is flying a plane or using a phone really that creative? I’ve never really thought about this question, but this spammer believes it to be so, so I will continue pondering it.
The last example, “being able to change the course of history with just a few words,” I mostly understand. The ideas that change history are inarguably remarkable and creative. Is it the words or the ability to change history with them that matters, though? I think it must be both.
