Bury your ideas in a vault for a thousand years to await the unfolding of human consciousness to comprehend your vision.

"My project was retarded by laws of nature. The world was not prepared for it. It was too far ahead of time. But the same laws will prevail in the end and make it a triumphal success." - Nikola Tesla

Well folks, there's a few quotes in regards to the ways of a visionary!
Anyway, I'm wondering what essential qualities are captured by the archetype of the visionary.

In my opinion, a visionary constructs worldviews that are ahead of the times and invents revolutionary ideas that can transform paradigms.

What are your ideas on visionary archetypes?
