Research statement

“Penetration means to enter something, not just to stand outside it. When we want to understand it, when we want to understand something, we cannot just stand outside and observe it. We have to enter deeply into it, and be one with it in order to really understand... There is no other way to understand something”

from The Heart of Understanding by Thich Nhat Hanh.
