According to what the author of this issue claims, many important discoveries or creations are accidental. Although at first glance this statement seems not irrational ;however, I disagree when the writer says ‘many important discoveries or creation’. In what follows I will delineate why I think so.
First, scientist or artists who are searching data , studying events or following objects to discover something or create an artistic painting or sculpture mostly have plans for their research or works. Say, the scientist who concentrate to find out why people die from an specific disease will follow an timely plan for discovering a virus or something else. Besides, an artist usually knows what he or she follows and usually has imagination of his work in mind . like what Michelangelo said before creating the David statue “I see what is hidden in this marble stone and I will emancipate it” so just saying many discoveries or creations are accidental does not seem prudent.
Furthermore, scientists usually work on scheduled plan for discovering an object. For instance, an extraterrestrial object must be followed on an exact time plan. scientist should concentrate on plans without which their goals may be too versatile or even discursive .for instance, if an astronaut try to discover any new objects he or she may never reach the goal of measuring an specific item which is the goal, for example. So many scientist or artist have to ignore other things which are not their goals. Even they culminate in new discoveries.
On the other hand we should accept that there were some accidental creation or even some unwanted discoveries during history, some of them are reported precious such as finding alcohol during other chemical testing experiments by Jaber ibn Hayyan the Persian scientist in 8 A.D. But these cases are rare.
According what I mentioned in body paragraphs above it is not prudent to say many of important discoveries were accidental. History proves that they are not numerous. Instead many of discoveries are on the base of a time lined plan or have stamina which have been determined the way for scientist or artists.
