The Philosophical Alien

Usually, my dreams follow a strict Freudian principle, but yesterday's was slightly aberrant. An old king went to meet his pet - a grotesque human-looking alien from outer space who lives in a tunnel underneath the palace. As the king bent down the tunnel and looked underneath, the alien turns his head towards him and says something like, "I always like to know more about the theory of the data than the data in the latest theory". If this sounds gibberish, then let me remind you that this was a dream (inherently meaning that nothing is supposed to make any sense) and was uttered by a philosophical alien who thinks all carbon-based life forms are nothing more than just gas....but I think I kind of understand what the alien meant....
