  1. in my humble opinion,dearest, the world goes forward with enquiring minds. An enquiring mind is a brilliant mind, therefore shedding more light on an otherwise controversial or obscure subject is the way forward.
    B. please!

  2. Ah Rinoula (you should use this nickname btw, sounds like you!), I don’t really know if there’s only one answer to my question. The thing is, others don’t share my opinion. So, we have to fit our ideas in an academic box that is not always compatible with the artistic side of that thing we’re researching. It’s easy to start talking about the arts, but when it comes to narrow it down, it’s a pain in you-know-where. Anyway, I shouldn’t complain that much!
