Abstract: There are a variety of ways of anticipating the future. One-the commonest-is to scrutinize existing practice and equipment as minutely as possible for flaws, friction, or redundancy, and to seek to eliminate the discoverable weaknesses. That is the most effective means of securing refinement, or improvement in detail. While it is not an effective spur to radical innovations, it is the surest way of making small gains, which in the aggregate and over the course of years may become large. It is unlikely, taken by itself, to have the result of transporting an art on to a wholly new level.
