Necessity is the mother of invention.

It is the ability to heighten necessity that empowers invention.

“New organs of perception come into being as a result of necessity.  Therefore, O man, increase your necessity, so that you may increase your perception.” [Sufi sage Julaluddin Rumi (1207-1273)]
