Let's Rethink

There are thousands of brilliant ideas that have not been spread to billions of people in the world.
There are people who have found different and unique values about those ideas.
In TEDxTitech, those people spotlight the idea and
different point of view about the idea that lot of people never had in their thought.
We aim to awake those dormant ideas and let people know about them.

Original.—Original minds are distinguished not by being the first to see a new thing,
but by seeing the old, well-known thing, which is seen and overlooked by everyone, as something new. The first discoverer is usually that quite ordinary and unintellectual visionary—chance.

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche

Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsch, one of the greatest philosophers in history, expressed the word original in the following way in his book “Human, All Too Human.” Going back to the past, the things around us often drop a hint of a great discovery or invention. It is well known that Thomas Alva Edison brought the study of his light to completion by using Phyllostachys pubescens inside the ground of Hachiman shrine in Kyoto as the most optimum material for the filament. It is said that he eventually came up with the idea when he saw a folding fan on the desk at that time.

All you see in this world is filled with many patentable ideas.
Having second thoughts about something, you will be able to let them have a new value.

Let’s rethink of the past or other side of the world beyond time and space, or even any trifling things around us.
A number of wonderful ideas which no one knows to date might be waiting to be discovered by us.
