I think one needs to take risks and wonder and speculate..investigate other larger rock pools spread a wider net. sure theres an increase chance in trawling in matter to be thrown back in the water but you increase the chance of amassing more knowledge and possible links..and stepping stones to understand how interrelated everything is. Who would have imagined BSC and hamburgers and a young adult laying in bed dead and linked?
I'm sure people had to sit down and laterally brainstorm there before finding a lead.
Sure there's a vital beauty in rational logical thinking and in the same breath a beauty in the speculative lateral which is inclusive of intuitive based gut feeling...but manages to hit the nail on the head.
Answers and sign posts and links to the next stepping stone too have come out of what people at first thought were mistakes...With respect...it's hurtfull to those you call idiots...the jesters to the king and queen were by far from "fools"....and the "simpletons" ...i have worked alongside...have astounded me by such profound deep wisdom...you'd think that they lifted it from a philisophical book it's stuff that no rational thinking and text books can reach...!
