Research by Aspect (Thaumcraft 3)

For the Aspect list and the items that have those aspects, see List of Aspects or List of Aspects (Thaumcraft 3).
Spoiler warning!
This article contains detailed information of discoveries, recipes, or secrets, which are intended to be discovered through in-game mechanics.

Just because you know a recipe doesn't necessarily mean you can make it (yet). You must complete tier 1 before going onto tier 2, and you must have the research done and learned before you can do something with the researched items.
