Richard Dawkins once said "Science is the poetry of reality". Resourcefulness will generate your scientific alphabet, your punctuation, and your rhyme. Avail yourself of a broad set of inputs, build a sharpness of focus to lead to your discovery of something no one has known before. Then publish it.
