Essay 20: “Flatland: A glimpse of things to come”

Imagine the awe and wonder.  What would you experience if – having lived your entire life to this moment confined to a two-dimensional plane in an instant you were propelled into an entirely new and other world, one in which there were three dimensions?  A world of spheres instead of circles.  Transformation.  Never again would things be the same.

With this essay, we embark on a journey.  A journey that propels us into new dimensions of insight.  A journey that will consume the next several essays as we develop a simple conceptual framework, a model to guide our reflection on innovation.  A framework that will help us gain new insight into the epistemology of breakthrough innovation.
