Bearing New Thoughts

Can New thoughts be created?
Why are there so few prominent philosophers.
Is there only a small allotment of fresh thoughts, innovative ideas per century. Must we wait between each allowance of fresh ideas.
Philosophically it seems to all have been said already, there are many just rewriting the words others have said with a different perspective that amounts to the same concept.
If there is an allotment of thoughts, a predetermined measure of genius, how is it doled out. Is it reliant on a specific number of intellectuals passing away to allow their “brain energy” to collect and pool and eventually fill a single individual.
Or is there a greater power that chooses the precise moment to allow a prolific thinker to exist so that there is always some sort of balance?
