A Nerd Ranting about Science, Technology, Politics, Science Fiction, and whatever other tomfoolery comes to mind.
The illustrated guide to a Ph.D.. This seems pretty accurate to me.
oh, i love that!
I like it.As I was reading along, I'd been hoping that after pushing and studying for so long, it would finally crack the shell and emerge like a baby bird (am I the only one me who sees a bird there?) into that vast space beyond the original circle -- and realize, on a new level of awareness, how very much it didn't know, and how much it hadn't even known there was to know. Though that might not be PhD specific, it might just be the way I think of growing and learning as an adult. The more I learn, the more there is to learn, and the more I realize I don't know.
Ever read Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions? (http://www.amazon.com/Structure-Scientific-Revolutions-Thomas-Kuhn/dp/1443255440/) I think you're describing a Paradigm Shift. :-)
