Gabriel seemed to possess an uncanny grasp of science and technology, and of their potential impact in everyday life. For instance, at one point, Gabriel described his peripheral visual stimulation idea (which he illustrates with hand motions in the photo).
He had found that when working to finish lyrics to a song, he became more productive in environments (such as on a train) where his peripheral vision was in motion. He hypothesized that, evolutionarily, the proto-humans who were able to be creative while being chased may have been more likely to survive, and that their survival may have selected for some correlation between stimulation of the peripheral vision and creativity.
