What you see is what you expect

"[...] a scientist must also be absolutely like a child. If he sees a thing, he must say that he sees it, whether it was what he thought he was going to see or not. See first, think later, then test. But always see first. Otherwise, you will only see what you were expecting."

Douglas Adams, "So Long and Thanks for all the Fish."
