the uphill struggles of research

These metallic guys (yes, all three are guys) are climbing up the stairwell of the Zimmerman Library at the University of New Mexico.  I'm not sure where they can get to, other than to a very solid - not even glass - ceiling.  There's got to be a metaphor in this, somewhere - they are, after all, in a library ... I managed, myself to solve one intransigent, minute problem of chronology, so I feel as if the ropes, at least,  held today - even if the temperature was 104 on a campus full of people with their noses in iPhones, capturing Rattatas and Pidgeys.
