Another ‘how to invent stuff’ non sequitur

The objective of Quantum Leap Haiku verses is to explain how to invent stuff, embracing the principles of environment, energy (physics) and economics. Here is another example using a computer-abstracted version of one of my paintings – this time in a square format, with the verse under the picture, rather than superimposed:

  • Sphere eversion is an apparent paradox relating to the conservation of energy; 
  • forcing a competitive head-start by the adoption of disruptive technology can be turned into an economic advantage; 
  • ‘using’ garbage rather than just putting it somewhere is an environmental concept finally catching on across all sectors. 

Wikipedia defines a typical haiku as a three-line observation about a fleeting moment involving nature, with the three lines having 5, 7 and 5 syllables. Quantum Leap Haiku is a three-line observation about a fleeting tangent involving technological innovation. Again, the lines have 5, 7 and 5 syllables.

What needs to be done to an illustration to make the quantum leap from an illustrated non sequitur about some of the environment-energy-economics aspects of technological innovation...  to a (reasonable) revelation about ‘how to invent stuff’ that will result in cleaner energy?
