Well, that does make a lot of sense, it's just a pity that searching
for the item you want frequently ends up fruitless but I agree that if
you search for anything, your sure to find it.
Maybe there is some higher order philosophical relevance in this.
Perhaps we would advance more if our research was basically open,
random, instead of closed on a specific idea. Instead of trying to
work out which road to take to get to Rome, just take any road as all
roads lead toe Rome.
