The First Secret Key to Universal Mastery:

	Meta-knowledge is more valuable in the long run than actual 
knowledge. (That's why reference librarians are sometimes referred to as 
the Secret Masters of the Universe.)

The Second Secret Key to Universal Mastery:

	Identify the critical 20% and deal with it first.

The Third Secret Key to Universal Mastery:

	The question is more important than the answer.
	(aka The question IS the answer.)

The Fourth Secret Key to Universal Mastery:

	Fun is the path to genius. Don't let the plodders talk you into 
being "reasonable". Invite them along instead.

The Fifth Secret Key to Universal Mastery:

	The other Keys don't matter. Only Love matters.
