The process of research has three steps. First, you find a very attractive event, such as honey bee colonies well build nests inside which sound that they make reflect on the hexagonal walls so that any individuals can catch and respond to it. Second, you think about what kind of model mimics the phenomenon well to be implemented in a physical basis. Finally, you find a way to perform experiments on your model and write a paper about it.

The first step belongs to your cognitive understating of the situation outside yourself. The second step is based on your intelligent analysis on the finding mentioned above. In these two steps, you think about things that exist before your eyes as natural phenomena. The final step is a bid different from them. It is called abstraction in computer science and AI. You have to go beyond the natural phenomena and to provide them with abstractive principles. This final step looks to me quite similar to the step of soul purification mentioned in the book by St. Juan de la Cruz. He calls it supernatural mediation in the midnight that is a kind of the status of souls.

He affirms that even if God gives such a kind of status to you, you should cast it away and ignore it in your life, because it is very much seductive to stick to it longer that God expects you. He also mentions that it might come from the reverse side of heaven.

Actually, it is true. I was very happy to get the letter of acceptance. But, soon after that, the next things that I have to do with HFL and YKG for advancing what we have done came out into my mind. Without such advance, we have to be stuck in the status quo. A success in researh is always a trap to scientists, because we need to describe the belongings to natural in a supernatural language that is mathematics. I cannot understand or even feel the context of Juan de la Cruz, but his words are very instructive to me. I thank Fr. Jackson who lets me his name.
