Gary Young's Epiphany
An epiphany ( "manifestation, striking appearance") is an experience of a sudden and striking realization. Generally the term is used to describe a scientific breakthrough or a religious or philosophical di but it can apply in any situation in which

an enlightening realization allows a problem or situation to be understood from a new and deeper perspective.



"I had an epiphany in 1973 during the oil crisis while sitting in line to buy gas and I thought to myself if we’re gonna run out of oil soon, maybe we need to start looking at ways to do things that use less resources, can be replenished by nature, and do less harm to the environment." Gary Young, '66
