when we happen on an epiphany:
1. it is good judgment to remember that probably someone somewhere has already had it. once the glare of our brilliance has waned (or our awareness of it), we are likely to apply judicious criticism and make it practical
2. we are better off if we moved quickly on, since, as the famous saying goes, "to the one wielding a hammer, everything is a nail." as one of the profs who teaches a class on optimization says on the first day of class: "every one of you will soon have an awakening that everything is optimization! but, take it from me, the sooner you get over it the better for all of us."
