The rules and work flow that go into my filters and processes are those
that accomplish *my goals*. Your rules and work flow should be based on
your needs and goals. That is self-evident enough that no one will

"You look at science (or at least talk of it) as some sort of
demoralising invention of man, something apart from real life, and which
must be cautiously guarded and kept separate from everyday existence.
But science and everyday life cannot and should not be separated."
 — Rosalind Franklin
