马里兰州已故的埃尔摩·盖茨博士创造了2 0 0多项有用的专利,其中多项专利基本上是通过培养与应用创造能力产生的。他的做法对有意取得天才地位的人(盖茨博士无疑属于此类人物)而言,不只重要,而且有趣。盖茨博士正是世上少数真正伟大但不出名的科学家之一。
The late Dr. Elmer R. Gates, of Chevy Chase, Maryland, created more than 200 useful patents, many of thembasic, through the process of cultivating and using the creative faculty. His method is both significant andinteresting to one interested in attaining to the status of genius, in which category Dr. Gates, unquestionablybelonged. Dr. Gates was one of the really great, though less publicized scientists of the world.
在实验室里,他有个"个人沟通室"。这个房间几乎是完全隔音的,而且它的设计完全阻绝光线。里面有一张小桌,桌上放着一叠纸。桌前的墙壁上有一个控制光线的电钮。当盖茨博士想运用创造型想像力的时候,他就会进入这个房间,坐在桌前,关掉电灯,专注于正在发明对象的已知因素。他就这样静坐着, 直到与发明有关的未知因素"闪入"脑海为止。
In his laboratory, he had what he called his "personal communication room." It was practically sound proof,and so arranged that all light could be shut out. It was equipped with a small table, on which he kept a pad ofwriting paper. In front of the table, on the wall, was an electric pushbutton, which controlled the lights. WhenDr. Gates desired to draw upon the forces available to him through his Creative Imagination, he would go intothis room, seat himself at the table, shut off the lights, and CONCENTRATE upon the KNOWN factors of theinvention on which he was working, remaining in that position until ideas began to "flash" into his mind inconnection with the UNKNOWN factors of the invention.
有一次,构想源源不断地到来,使他写了近三个小时。
On one occasion, ideas came through so fast that he was forced to write for almost three hours. When thethoughts stopped flowing, and he examined his notes, he found they contained a minute description ofprinciples which had not a parallel among the known data of the scientific world.
当意念不再泉涌时,他检查笔记,发现上面详细叙述了一些原则,而那些原则在科学界已知的资料中,找不到任何相同的东西。此外,问题的答案也已巧妙地呈现在笔记中了。
Moreover, the answer to his problem was intelligently presented in those notes. In this manner Dr. Gatescompleted over 200 patents, which had been begun, but not completed, by "half-baked" brains. Evidence ofthe truth of this statement is in the United States Patent Office.
盖茨博士凭借为个人或公司"坐待构想" 谋生。美国一些最大的公司会按照小时为他的"坐待构想"支付丰厚的费用。
Dr. Gates earned his living by "sitting for ideas" for individuals and corporations. Some of the largestcorporations in America paid him substantial fees, by the hour, for "sitting for ideas."
推理经常有缺陷,因为它在很大程度上依靠个人累积经验的指引。但个人通过经验所获得的知识并不完全正确,而通过创造能力取得的构想则可靠得多,这是因为其来源要比推理的来源更为可靠。
The reasoning faculty is often faulty, because it is largely guided by one's accumulated experience. Not allknowledge, which one accumulates through "experience," is accurate. Ideas received through the creativefaculty are much more reliable, for the reason that they come from sources more reliable than any which areavailable to the reasoning faculty of the mind.
