The meaning of the search

Link: The meaning of the search

This beautiful essay in the last edition of Wired magazine gave a really nice explanation of why science (and math) is worth doing, even if we don’t get the answers we’re looking for. Worth the read.

On a related note, I discovered an erroneous assumption I made a while back that invalidates the last four months’ results. Still reeling from it a tiny bit, but the main thing is… it’s the search.
