"Necessity is the mother of invention, though."

That's a cute tagline, but far from being a foolproof maxim. Necessity can just as often (if not more often) lead to surrender or death before a solution is invented. And as another poster stated, the necessity is far from being a proven fact. It's still mostly inductive reasoning and models.
