Decaying Naturalists

There are a couple ways to learn. One is to seek more information from Wikipedia and Google images. This can be done from the couch.

The other way is to experience that place, that thing, in real life.

Back in the day researchers had no choice but to get their hands dirty. The only way for Darwin to really study evolution was to travel to South America.

Technology is killing biology. People are much more interested in vicarious Internet studies. Real research requires presence. Sure, there’s a cost to it but if you want to know bad enough you’ll surely make it happen.

The knowing is in the doing, in the depths of the primary source.
