What Is a Gadget?
A gadget is any clever little invention or an immovable object. Gadgets can be called either gizmos or instruments. They may include a hand-held electronic device such as a digital camera, microwave oven, calculator or other small electrical appliance, a clock radio, a personal computer or a video game device.
A gidget is not a brain in itself. It’s a way of asking or hinting that one has something of value to share. A gadget is a gadget designed to encourage the mind to ask questions. So a clever person will go to a brain shop and buy a gadget, such as a tea kettle, that has the potential of giving knowledge of some kind to someone who asks the kettle’s inventor for a cup of tea.
The brain uses concepts such as names, colors, shapes, numbers, words, and so on to construct explanations for things. To build a house, one must think of various shapes and materials, such as wood, blocks, tiles, plastic, glass, metal and so on. These things do not have specific and absolute names but are flexible and adaptable to meet the needs of every person who plans to build his house. And similarly, concepts such as color, words, numbers, shapes, numbers and so on are also flexible to meet the needs of every person who plans to construct a house. And similarly, it is easy to change existing concepts to suit current needs, while new concepts can be used to build new gadgets.
In contrast, an object does not have definite and absolute names, so it cannot serve as a knowledge gland. To make a gadget, someone must think of a number of things that all serve as foundations for the gadget. The brain then combines these foundation ideas into a conceptual framework, which becomes the final shape of the gadget. This framework, called a concept, is in fact the very thing that the brain uses to construct a concept of the gadget. It is therefore easy to understand that brain power and knowledge creation are not the same thing, as the brain has no use for information that doesn’t help it build a concept.
Therefore, we need to ask: Why is it that a brain is able to create knowledge? Is not knowledge created by the combination of experiences and sensory inputs? If this were the case, the brain would not be able to make new ideas or solve problems. The brain is rather like a store room where different objects, which serve to store and organize information, are put in a particular order, according to their shape, size and color. When we look at a picture, or at a video, or when we listen to a sound, the brain puts all of these together in our minds, in order to make us understand the content of what we see or hear.
The question then is, how the brain comes up with knowledge that it can use in solving problems? The answer lies in the idea that the brain synthesizes new information, built from the experiences and sensory inputs, in such a way that the solution to a problem is made. To be able to do this, a new gadget would have to be invented. The gadget would be able to store information in its memory in such a way that future generations would be able to build on the knowledge that was already stored there.
