Instead of working to find a solution, he would relax until the solution came to him. McKay had that kind of revelation a few times during his work in the Atlantis expedition. (SGA: "Home", "Broken Ties")

Sheppard initially confused McKay's reference to this scientist with another Archimedes, a Greek member of the Atlantis expedition who once had a crush on Teyla
