what exactly is a transparent methodology?  i know what a transparent material 
object is but how can a method of research be transparent?  if its transparent 
isnt it in essence invisible?  and if invisible isnt it without substantive 
value?  and if it is without value, why use it as a method?

thanks for the clarification  (im old and stupid and i need stuff spelled out).
