If Isaac Newton had kittens (and I'm not saying he did, because, for all I know, Isaac Newton was an iguana person), you can bet they wouldn't have been interested in physics or calculus. They would have wanted to move to Italy and become painters or layabouts in spite of Catdaddy Isaac Newton's strenuous efforts to spark their interest the STEM fields, and only when all the kittens had grown up and left home would an older Isaac Newton meet a stray dog with a knack for discerning fractal patterns, adopt it, and, much to the consternation of the layabout painter cats in Italy, leave his entire fortune to the adopted dog. That's just how these things go.
