He was a salaried alchemist in Nuremberg.

In 1677, he was promoted, at his request, to Privy Counselor of Justice, a post he held for the rest of his life. Leibniz served three consecutive rulers of the House of Brunswick as historian, political adviser, and most consequentially, as librarian of the ducal library for the Brunswicks from 1677 till his death.

He had begun construction of a calculating machine in 1964 which he hoped would be of interest. The calculating machine that Gottfried Leibniz invented received mixed reviews. It received criticism from peers, but it garnered support from the Royal Society of London. In the end, however, Leibniz’s inability to finish the project affected his relationship with the institution.

Gottfried Leibniz also invented the binary system, which today forms the basis for many computer programs.

"For indeed, there is nothing in the intellect which was not in the senses, except the intellect itself. Music is the pleasure the human mind experiences from counting without being aware that it is counting. Nothing exists and nothing happens without a reason why it is so, and not otherwise."
