Knowledge is its own reward.

It matters not from whence the knowledge comes, for what ends it is used, or what is done with it. All that matters is that the information is truthful.

Gather information. Only by being gathered may it be protected.

Test information. Ever strive to ascertain what is true and what is false. Set aside the falsehood, keeping it only as a record of error.

Protect information. History is a series of wheat shoots, planted, growing, reaped, and burnt. Knowledge is the seed, and it must be shepherded through the burning. Every piece of information is a life spent collecting it, and every piece of information lost is an end to the immortality of its creator.

Knowledge is the only immortality of which the living can be sure. Protect it, add to it, and see to your own immortality.
