“When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains however improbable, must be the truth.” [Spock in Star Trek]
The truth will always be found. In the recent movie Star Trek, an impossible circumstance becomes realized. It is important to consider all options when looking for the truth. There is a space ship that seems out of the ordinary. It seems to be somehow from the future by the looks of it. But that is impossible. However one of the characters, Spock, realizes something when he says, “When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains however improbable, must be the truth.” [Spock in Star Trek] In school, children are always taught to think outside the box. It is a common saying that refers to attempting to come up with a solution to the problem that is different or original, and that solves the problem in a different way. This skill is exactly what Spock is demonstrating in this part of the movie. Because Spock is able to think outside the box and realize that the impossible may be possible, he and his colleagues are able to devise a plan to fight and ultimately destroy these enemies from the future. Thinking outside the box is a skill that all people need. It is almost synonymous with ingenuity and originality, skills that we all wish to possess. If you can learn to think outside the box, you will be better equipped to solve any problem.
