meeting of the minds

Does sitting close to the screen change the perspective of research, making it appear bigger and less insignificant than it really is? Perhaps so as it seems to be the habitual posture of the postgrad creature. Significance. A meeting with the supervisor/advisor ...



... tends to be by de facto lingua franca most often elevating the postGrad's significance the same way puddles regard Maxwell’s equations. In my meeting today my mind was quite like a puddle; imagine a puddle waking up in the morning and thinking.

    Out of the frying pan and into the fire!
