- If you are just stitching together pieces of information that you’ve gathered, without trying to interweave the different elements, you’re making a quilt. Itmight hang together but it looks like it was pieced together from lots of separate elements.
- Weaving a fine fabric requires you to take each piece of information and treat it like a thread in the loom. You must be able to see how each thread relates to all the others, see where some things can blend together, where some things stand out and how it all is interconnected. That is what you are trying to do with the synthesis process.
