If you could choose any historical figure to give a TED Talk, who would it be and why?

This one is pretty open-ended. I'm curious to know who you would choose for a TED Talk, why, and maybe what you think their "idea worth spreading" might be.

    Apr 9 2013: ISAAC NEWTON, hands down.
    When I think of the achievements of Isaac Newton, I become at a loss of words......
    He discovered the laws of optics
    He discovered the laws of motion
    He discovered the Universal law of gravitation
    He discovered - integral differential calculus
    He did all this before he turned 26 years of age. I find this beyond extra ordinary..... I find this mind blowing
    If he could be here to give a TED talk, I would go to any possible extent to secure a front seat.

    cheers
