Thaumcraft 4 Research Notes
Book of Knowledge
Knowledge is power
Research aspects in this block
"Research and discovery make up the very essence of Thaumaturgy, yet sometimes the sheer amount of paperwork is enough to make even the toughest thaumaturge want to jump off a giant cliff WITHOUT a Thaumostatic Harness. The solution to this problem seems relatively simple. Animating a book to do the writing for you will be easy, right?..............Well, no.
Making a book able to store knowledge is relatively simple since that is what books do by default (obviously). Making it able to compile its knowledge into useable and comprehensible research is another ordeal entirely.
In order to make the book able to do anything, it must be animated so it can open, close, and turn its pages on its own. After the book of knowledge itself is assembled, it needs to be placed on a flat surface that conducts magic in order to activate, a role which an arcane pedestal serves perfectly.
Once it is placed on a pedestal, the book of knowledge can be used for research. Simply dropping a research page on the ground near the book and supplying it with Cognitio essentia will start the research process. From that point on, the waiting game begins.
You have found that placing any form of booster that can affect an enchantment table nearby will speed up the process, albeit not in any significant way.
The Book of Knowlege has one more use other than performing research. It can be opened and used like any other Thaumonomicon, removing the need to constantly lug around a Thaumonomicon wherever you go."
