The title caught your eye didn’t it? Ahh the apple of your eyes.
Anyways today we are discussing this well-known legend of Sir Isaac Newton. He was “inspired” to formulate the force of gravity when he observed an apple fall to the ground.
No it didn’t hit his head..
though once in a while I wish it did.. but that is not the point!
What if the apple never fell? What if he never did his research on gravity? WHAT IF THE APPLE NEVER FELL? Would we have remained FOOOOOOLS? Idiots? Who had little knowledge and LOTS OF STUPIDITY about the universe?
Are you really wondering about my question?? *scoff* WHAT IF THE APPLE NEVER FELL? *scoff* Is this a joke?
We as a species definitely, absolutely, would have noticed to the simplest, most basic, most obvious thing in this universe… GRAVITY!
okay.. not simplest tho… the kinds of questions physics textbooks have!! my god
Maybe instead of the story of the apple it would have been orange. Instead of a weird name like NEW-TON, some William or Robert would have been worshipped. Not much would’ve changed really…
We would still know about gravity and would try to understand it. We would still ask questions about how the universe works. We would still discover electromagnetism, invent electricity, travel to space and much more.
The apple did not provide the answer to Newton, nor did it have any magic taste the answer to Newton… it was just a spark. The spark could have been anything or for anyone.
Thus, the question “What If the Apple Never Fell?” is a joke. Nothing would change, maybe our ancestors would have been idiots for a few more decades.. but nothing drastic (:
Though the real question is… What If The Apple Never Falls Again??
What if we don’t get any such sparks before our evident extinction??
What if we are idiots.. and still know nothing… lol.. we will get through it.. if we don’t, we apples will also fall to the ground soon enough..
