I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
- Nikola Tesla
As another mythic inventor working in the shadow of Tesla, I agree with him in this instance.
When under the influence of such mood altering states, we mythic inventors are very easy to exploit and often are, as was Tesla, which is why he died penniless and alone.
