Prepare to be surprised

Let's experiment, explore the unknowns and prepare to be surprised by unexpected results and to be open to evaluate all the possible explanations  -  Or we will possibly miss even our own maybe fortuitous discoveries and inventions.

Perhaps the only thing better for a scientist than finding the crucial piece of a puzzle that completes a picture is finding a piece that doesn't fit at all, and tells us that there is a whole new part of the puzzle that we haven't even imagined yet and the scene in the puzzle is bigger, richer than we ever thought.
