    And I wrote not three days ago, to another, a concerningly similar-

    "The true act of observation is done in silence- no thoughts impede- it
    is a totally receptive state. And, within this state, what flows in the
    mind, and what processes congeal and form to bring sense to this
    silence, is the creative process, and, it works as well upon the field
    of science (and as validly) as it does upon the field of art and poetry,
    each with their own tools and experiences and cultures and technologies
    and practitioners and traditions. But it is where one takes the fruits
    of this silence that determines what is to be next- science or poetry.
    Facts or feelings."
