"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

In these two beautiful composite conceptual symbols, Dilip has systematically arranged the three earlier conceptual symbols, namely Copycat or Copycatting, Piggyback or Piggybacking, & Leapfrog or Leapfrogging, to line up in a sequence to form the Co-Pi-Fro process, which is the essence of making a quantum leap in one's creative process, by "riding on the shoulders of giants".

That's to say, Ideas Build On Ideas!

Isn't that interesting?

Although Leapfrog or Leapfrogging may seemed to be the end-point, I would want to consider it separately or independently from the first two, especially when one decides to take a sudden detour or an unbeaten path during the creative journey, in order to make a breakthrough.
