"Nieves was very aware that the intuitive mind, the essential mind toexecute science, is an experience of awareness rather thanintellectual reasoning, which takes years of mind training andpersonal development to conquer.I remember very vividly the day she introduced me to Palaeooölogy inSuterranya in the Catalan Pyrenees. Instead of bombarding me withbiomineral and parataxonomical theory on Megaloolithd palaeooötaxa,she encouraged me to visualise quietly for sometime dinosaur nestingbehaviour from the vertical outline of eggs and eggshells on thestrata; and to feel the soft sandy sediment for a couple of hours fromwhere we were uncovering dinosaur eggshells.The clarity of mind I developeded from such direct experience with theenvironment I was working, was critical in understanding the aim,elaborate, and consummate the Masters project. However, I have beenreturning alone to the site many times, trying to recapture “somethingelse” I knew Nieves wanted to transmit me, but, I could not decipheruntil her departure.Nieves, I understand now that the Masters degree or whatever else youdo in life is just accessory. The essential wisdom in life is torealise that a constant “Clarity of mind” to live moment after momentwith neutral intensity is the key to experience awareness of live.Nieves posthumous teacher, I cannot thank you for having planted in mymind such seed of wisdom, but, the seed has finally sprouted, and itwill grow into a tree that will produce many seeds that will pass onyour wisdom.
