      5 Discoveries Made in Dreams

      ⚘5 Discoveries Made in Dreams⚘

      8 NOVEMBER, 2015

      By*Tara MacIsaac*,*Epoch Times**

      In Beyond Science, Epoch Times explores research and accounts related to phenomena and theories that challenge our current knowledge. We delve into ideas that stimulate the imagination and open up new possibilities.

      1. Dmitri Mendeleev, Periodic Table⚘

      Dmitri Mendeleev (1834–1907)
      wanted to organize the 65 known elements somehow.
      He knew there was a pattern to be discerned,
      and it had something to do with atomic weight,
      but the pattern remained elusive.

      Then, Mendeleev later reported,

      “In a dream⚘ I saw a table
      where all the elements fell into place as required.

      Awakening,
      I immediately wrote it down on a piece of paper.”

      Mendeleev’s words were quoted*in

      “On the Question of Scientific Creativity,”
      by Russian chemist B.M. Kedrov.⚘

      This was how the periodic table was formed.
      The arrangement he saw in his dream ⚘
      was so accurate,
      it even revealed that some elements had been incorrectly measured;
      they were placed in his periodic table according to their atomic weight,
      which wasn’t even known yet.⚘

      Thank you for sharing THIS article, Wow

      2. Niels Bohr, Atomic Model⚘

      “Niels Bohr [1885–1962]
      reports that he developed the model of the atom
      based on a dream⚘
      of sitting on the sun
      with all the planets hissing around on tiny cords,”**

      according to a paper**titled
      “Pillow-Talk:

      Seamless Interface
      for Dream Priming*
      Recalling and Playback,”

      by Edwina Portocarrero
      at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
      and co-authors.

      3. Elias Howe, Sewing Machine

      Elias Howe (1819–1867)
      is often credited with inventing the sewing machine,
      though in reality
      he significantly improved previous designs
      and received the first U.S. patent
      for a sewing machine using the lockstitch design.

      It was a major development
      in creating the modern sewing machine.

      ⚘Before a breakthrough came to him in a dream, ⚘
      however,
      he was stuck
      on the problem of
      where to place the eye of the needle.



      His dream is recorded**
      in a family history**titled,
      “The Bemis History and Genealogy:
      Being an Account,
      in Greater Part,
      of the Descendants of
      Joseph Bemis of Watertown, Massachusetts:”*

      “He almost beggared himself
      before he discovered
      where the eye of the needle of the sewing machine
      should be located. …
      His original idea was to follow the model
      of the ordinary needle,
      and have the eye at the heel.

      It never occurred to him that it should be placed
      near the point,
      and he might have failed altogether
      if he had not dreamed ⚘



      he was building a sewing machine
      for a savage king in a strange country.

      “Just as in his actual waking experience,
      he was perplexed about the needle’s eye.
      He thought the king gave him twenty-four hours
      in which to complete the machine and make it sew.

      If not finished in that time death was to be the punishment.

      Howe worked and worked,
      and puzzled, and finally gave it up.
      Then he thought he was taken out to be executed.

      “He noticed that the warriors carried spears
      that were pierced near the head.



      Instantly came the solution of the difficulty,
      and while the inventor was begging for time he awoke.
      It was 4 o’clock in the morning.

      “He jumped out of bed, ran to his workshop,
      and by 9,
      a needle with an eye at the point
      had been rudely modeled. After that it was easy.”

      4. Albert Einstein, Speed of Light

      “Einstein said

      his entire career
      was an extended meditation
      ⚘on a dream ⚘
      he had as a teenager,”

      explained the Rev. John W. Price
      in an interview with John H. Lienhard,
      professor emeritus of mechanical engineering and history at the University of Houston,
      on the radio show “Engines of Our Ingenuity.”

      “He dreamt that he was riding a sled
      down a steep, snowy slope
      and,
      as he approached the speed of light
      in his dream,
      the colors all blended into one.

      He spent much of his career,
      inspired by that dream,
      thinking about what happens at the speed of light.”



      5. Friedrich August Kekulé, Molecular Structure of Benzene

      Friedrich August Kekulé (1829–1896)
      developed a structural theory in chemistry
      (related to the bonding order of atoms in a molecule)
      that was integral
      to the development of organic chemistry. *

      Dozing on a bus,
      ⚘a vision ⚘
      that provided a starting point for this theory*
      appeared to him,
      as recorded in
      “Serendipidty, Accidental Discoveries in Science,”
      by Royston M. Roberts:



      “I was returning by the last bus,
      riding outside as usual, t
      hrough the deserted streets of the city. …

      I fell into a reverie,

      and lo,
      the atoms were gamboling before my eyes.

      Whenever, hitherto,
      these diminutive beings had appeared to me,
      they had always been in motion.

      Now, however,
      I saw how, frequently,
      two smaller atoms united to form a pair;

      how a larger one embraced the two smaller ones;

      how still larger ones kept hold of
      three or even four of the smaller,
      whilst the whole kept whirling in a giddy dance.

      I saw how the larger ones formed a chain,
      dragging the smaller ones after them

      but only at the ends of the chains. …

      The cry of the conductor, ‘Clapham Road,’
      awakened me from my dreaming;

      but I spent a part of the night
      in putting on paper at least sketches
      of these dream forms.”
