Let me cite here an "alien from Mars"  - Arthur K=F6stler : )

"The discoverer perceives relational patterns of functional analogies 
where nobody saw them before, as a poet perceives the image of a camel 
in a drifting cloud"

or

"The manner in which some of the most important individual discoveries 
were arrived at, remind one more of a sleepwalker's performance than 
an electronic brain's"
