I cannot for the life of me understand what people* mean when they make vague claims of:
- unprecedented insight
- a new perspective on life/evolution/[insert something big here]
- meriting a fresh look at Life/Universe/[Everything]
- having important implications.
- bringing answers to some [major][open] questions
What do these things mean? What is the new insight? What does it imply?
*particularly scientists in the “Conclusion” section of their papers. I suspect that these phrases are used just to flesh out the section.
PS. I, too, am guilty of supplying vague terms when I don’t know what I am saying or what I want to say.
