Quotable: Robert Moog on Ideas

leave a comment »

I can feel what’s going on inside a piece of electronic equipment.  I have this sense that I know, and to some extent, have control over what is going on inside the transistors and inside the resistors.  When I am thinking about how to solve a particular problem I can think about it for days and weeks and nothing will happen.  And, some day,  when I am cutting the grass, or having a hamburger, or I wake up in the middle of the night, the idea will be there.  I think it would be egotistical of me to say, “I thought of it”.  What happened, is I opened my mind up and the idea came through and into my head.  These ideas, I don’t have to dig up anything.  Sometime I don’t even have to be thinking of them  – and there they are.  It’s something between discovering and witnessing.
