Statement of Intent and Planning
I have the responsibility to provide a certain level of detail regarding the planned research and operations for Carnicom Institute during the upcoming year. The primary issue of discussion is the balance between active research and the presentation of that same research to the public. The current situation is that the pace of research during the first half of this year has exceeded the capabilities of the Institute to present and disclose the results of that same research to the public. It is something to be grateful for that such a body of work is in place. The situation is not problematic but the lag is probably on the order of four to six months of work at this time. This dilemma will force certain decisions to be made as to what must be sacrificed with the available resources to achieve the greatest good. The immediate instinct is often to pursue the research needs in the most earnest fashion, as discoveries of some type occur on almost every day of business within this laboratory and associated work. Some of these discoveries are compelling and profound from a scientific standpoint, but the scientific methods demand that such fascinations be held in reserve until they are reliably replicated over a period of time. This is the nature of the work and this has always been the case; however, we must also not assume that infinite time for review and deliberation of our questions and discoveries remain.
