Contemplation should possibly be given to whether the term "serious iris
work" is that applied by the broad powerful stroke of Nature over a
millennium or by the relative insignificance of human intervention and
achievement in the last century (10% of a millennium) And which in itself is
a mere blip in the overall scale of the Earth's historical timeline.
