Albert Einstein Quote

"Creating a new theory is not like destroying an old barn and erecting a skyscraper in its place. It is rather like climbing a mountain, gaining new and wider views, discovering unexpected connections between our starting points and its rich environment. But the point from which we started out still exists and can be seen, although it appears smaller and forms a tiny part of our broad view gained by the mastery of the obstacles on our adventurous way up."

This does give some insight as to my thoughts while on "the" mountain...
Why not climb in a group?
Why not climb with a Sherpa?
Well, the journey of mastering the obstacles on the way up is what its all about.
The summit? Well (again) that's a bonus, but not a necessity!
