Holly: Newton said that he only achieved what he did through standing on the shoulders of giants.
Holly: But who had the original idea that set things going?
Holly: Have we forgotten how to be original?
Meridien: Perhaps originality is sometimes overrated when it means lessons are forgotten.
Holly: How can I tell if my ideas are original or based off a subconscious memory?
Oliver: Perhaps you just have to live with that.
Holly: But how can society progress when stuck in this lack of originality?
Oliver: Surely changes and improvements are just as innovative as original ideas.
Holly: I think I'm stuck in a counterexample.

The author writes:

A remix of Dinosaurs Made of Owls.

Since I was using David's art, I felt it appropriate that the comic should reflect this!
