### If you sneak in the need to understand the language of scientific
publication and the graphics, including photographs, into Biomind, this
would take care of a huge chunk of perception. OK, I guess this might be
difficult to get by your sponsors, unless they would come to see Biomind as
a scientist of its own, rather than a mere scientific tool. Maybe in the
next version.
