From Sonia Maasik and Jack Solomon, editors of Signs of Life:

Perhaps our first principle could be more succinctly phrased, "everything is connected," and our second simply summarized as "question authority."  Think of them that way if it helps.  Or just ask yourself whenever you are interpreting something, "what's going on here?"  In short, question everything.  And one more reminder: Signs are like weather vanes; they point in response to invisible historical winds.  We invite you now to start looking at the weather.  (19)
