But it wasn't actually derivative, because Newton failed to tell anybody about his invention until Leibniz published! And in that spirit, we all use Leibniz's nomenclature and operation symbols to this day.

Newton was undoubtedly a genius of the first order, but from what I read he also sounds like kind of a jerk.

Say! Is there a version of that for Patriotism?


You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.
