Thomas Edison, one of the most prolific inventors in history, holding 1,093 U.S. patents, was a telegraph operator (IMO, could only loosely be called a scientist).
Most of his inventions came from his experience, not from his study of science or the theory of his inventions. .
I am not underplaying the value of science in our lives, but see the importance of of getting out to experienc life....like Gaston Bachelard seemed to say.
