What is research? [ back ]

Research is hard work and a long way paved with drawbacks and fallacies.
The harder the problem, the more obstacles and going in circles are left behind.
Snaphosts are often premature, never ever give up.
Often unusual methods are necessary, but everything may end in a mess.
The greater the conclusions, the more make sure the proof doesn't collapse.
Often it needs a different point of view to discover a treasure.
Be prepared for the unexpected.
