Why does a light bulb represent an idea?
- When active, Our brain produces electrical currents due to nearly 100,000 chemical reactions occurring in it per second.
- These chemical reactions are carried out in our brain by tiny cells called neurons.
- Neurons process and transmit information through electrical and chemical signals that they pass on to each other.
- They pass this information at the speed of 420 km/hr.
- Which is faster than the speed of a race car!
- After processing this information, when we arrive at an insight, our brain literally lights up!
- That is why an “idea” is usually associated with a light bulb.
- The moment when we get an idea, is also referred to as an ‘Aha’, ‘Eureka’ or ‘light bulb’ moment.
