Jakob Nielsen says even 14 may be too many.

"Elaborate usability tests are a waste of resources. The best results come from testing no more than 5 users and running as many small tests as you can afford."

Why You Only Need to Test with 5 Users

However, you will always want to, and be told to, seek more information. I, you, and all other human beings, are subject to many cognitive biases which promote gathering as much information as possible, even when that information ultimately adds little to no value -- biases such as the Illusion of validity -- the belief that more acquired information generates additional relevant data for predictions, even when it evidently does not.

Perfection is not a destination; it is a continuous journey that never ends.

“Humans are imperfect. That’s one of the reasons that classical and jazz are in trouble. We’re on the quest for the perfect performance and every note has to be right. Man, every note is not right in life.” -- Branford Marsalis

Imagine the ocean represents potential. Each thing is like a wave arising from it and returning to it. There are no permanent waves. There are no perfect waves. At no point is a wave complete, even at its peak. Nature is a dynamic whole that is to be admired and appreciated, not perfected. Tell me, how can you improve upon the design of nature?

Stanford University Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller has been researching where thoughts exist and identified two substances where thought seems to exist:

  1. The electric atom/molecule level: Substances on this level can be measured with traditional instruments. We can measure them because they are electric-charge based.
  2. The magnetic information waves level: Tiller explains in an introduction to his research on his website: “This new level of substance, because it appears to function in the physical vacuum (the empty space between the fundamental electric particles that make up our normal electric atoms and molecules), is currently invisible to us and to our traditional measurement instruments.”

An intention projected from a person’s mind seems to increase the conductivity between the atom/molecule level and the vacuum level.
