For The New Lab Rat

First lesson: if it's a yes, say so. If it's a no, say so too. If the question asked begins with a how or a why, then explain exactly how or why. You don't have to be right. You just have to think you are.

It's hard to live within a closed environment because, as in a pressure cooker, no air comes in and gets out---you become enclosed. Everyone around you is prodding you into conformity. To think otherwise would be to deny reality...if you have a guess as to what it is, really. Conformity begins with answering questions without answering them, because that's the safest way to get by. And the safest way to get by is to conform. Petitio principii.

The safest way, however, is not always the best way. Which is best anyway? Let me think about it, and I'll tell you one day. Do you even understand this? After you reach the ∞th lesson, you would.
