By: Dylan Schleicher @ 5:38 PM – Filed under: Innovation & Creativity

I just like The Elegant Solution alot. You are going to see a Jack Covert Selects on it this month. This morning, I posted a podcast that I did with Matt a couple of weeks ago.

Here is another story I had not heard before:
According to neuroscientist Dr. William Calvin, author of Ascent of Mind, we're hardwired with a natural ballistic ability--the innate and uniquely human ability to throw an object and hit a moving target. Only humans have the genetic ability to think ahead, to project ourselves into the future, and to launch a plan of attack that hits the objective.
