This project started with great enthusiasm and the illusion (self- deception?) that new truths had been discovered. As it proceeded, with the review of the published works of many other investigators, it became increasingly obvious that relatively little is uniquely new. The discovery that others have had similar ideas is comforting in the knowledge that one is not alone in the intellectual wilderness, but it is also humbling to find that one is not as creative or as innovative as had been envisioned.
In one of those rare instances when intellectual honesty rears its head above the ugly sea of self-deception, I must confess that others have demonstrated at least equal insight and have often communicated with greater style. It seems that we must continually rediscover the truth.
