“Imagination is more important than knowledge”. Albert Einstein
But we can easily realize “The way someone imagine will drive his results !”
The Einstein´s refrigerator is a consequence of his imagination. In this idea, to be explained in details in future post, we can find three important features :
1 – The Einstein´s point of view of the world and society – The invention was created not for money but just to save german families against Ammonia leakage, which caused some deaths there, eliminating the compressor by a closed sealed chemical system.
2 – A conception of one system having low engineering performance and consequently no market acceptation.
“The way someone imagine will drive his results !”
3 – An idea based in a strong ethical principles is one idea forever !
A cicle with no mechanical parts where Ammonia (toxic) and Butane (flammable) can be replaced by another components in a circuit having no moving parts fed by the sun power. That Is exactly england engineers did and are trying to improve, showing Einstein was 80 years ahead of time.
“Imagination is more important than knowledge”.
The Einstein´s phrase has two lessons for us today :
As a businessman, manager or engineer, having a limited time, limited resources and having to reach the goal, I mean, all the projects we do, we should to achieve knowledge intensively. Through the inteligence, create a metodology or system as a tool for our acquisitions. It is the point where we are, on line and on time.
Knowledge comes from human resources, hired to be part of the process; systems come from structures based in human experience.
People is more important than systems and are the source we get the power of the knowledge and experience, or intuition, of which result is the inovation. Inovation is the future and will change the world to a best place to live.
