Contributing to Humanity is seeing (or mirage-ing) the goalpost-like constellations in stars, data, or markets and then building meaningful games for others so that they want to build ships to take you there.

In research: it's a Nature paper or a fodder for a new grant

Startups: it's unicorns or pivots

Failures are variants of abandoned PhDs or zombie startups.
