The whole point of standardization is to *redirect* (not discourage) people's
creativity into useful channels. Isaac Newton spent an unconscionable amount
of time, by our standards, messing about with astrology and numerology --
far more than he ever put into physics or calculus. The "standardization"
of science since his day has helped reduce such effects.
