== Goals
+ (grok: verb. "to understand profoundly and intuitively") +
+ Do you think you could ever come to understand what you run on your computer day in and day out?
+ There's something to be said for being able to. While some things in a system can usually be
+ overlooked, on *Mutiny* we want to promote an understandable, conceptualizable system.
+ You don't _have_ to understand what everything does as an end--but it should be encouraged to
+ learn how the pieces fit together, to learn the philosophy, and really become infatuated with
+ some of the unique ideas being brought forth.
