I had never been a believer that there is any such thing as failure.  Failure is about an education.  It’s just up to you to see what you learned there.  There is no situation where you can discover something — an antelope fossil, anything — that is not immensely valuable to us, as humans, to understand.  We’re just not smart enough at any one given moment to recognize what the question is.  The pressure of colleagues, and your society you exist in, whether it’s academic in my case, or society, business, whatever it is, it’s that pressure.  It’s that enormous pressure of what they perceive as success that causes the lows.  I never thought I was failing.  I never for a moment thought I was failing.   I am one of those scientists that has been fortunate enough to have something truly extraordinary happen to me.  I thought I had made big discoveries before.  I thought I had made contributions to science, incremental or major.  I only realized after this when truly a discovery of magnitude occurs.  It’s so much bigger than you are that it doesn’t need justification.  You don’t have to tell anyone how big it is.  And that was the moment I had to make the decision, “Do I keep this for myself, or do I stick to what I had gone through hell for in those wars of ’99, 2000, 2001?”  And I would like to think that there wasn’t a moment where I said, “My precious.”  And if there was, it didn’t last very long.  I fortunately stuck to that belief that there was a better way to do this, and I opened it, and brought in a great team which grew osmotically, in a way that people could — I mean, to over 100 scientists.  That’s in no time at all.  And publishing magnificent papers in the highest quality journals, and really, I think, contributing to our understanding of something about where we come from.
