It almost goes without saying that many scientists are very smart. Einstein, for example. However, as in so many scientific pursuits – the search for the highest number, the smallest atom, the very hungriest caterpillar – inquiring minds must ever turn towards determinatorics of the highest magnitude. The world of science is as vast as it is deep, and nearly as wide; it is therefore thus that certain pronouncements must be made periologically by which to hierarchize, ordinate, and prognologicaste the contours of the scientific world.
