Assuming you did the aspect combination listed in the Thaumonomicon, try scanning a seed.I simply seem to have trouble finding enough stuff to scan and get research points right off the bat Seems like either I cannot scan it yet (plants, trees, the like) or I've scanned it already (stone, ores, etc)...
What does it mean when appears a glowing dot in the top left of an aspect in the research table?
You need to combine aspects in the research table to obtain new aspects to scan new items.
I thought about this and I knew about the crystal clusters but the thing is that I don't have any crystal clusters around my research tables but I have every aspect glowing, I do have lots and lots of bookshelves, it might be the cause.Nobody's really sure about this, so don't take this as fact, but here's what I've gathered...
When you have the glowing dot by an Aspect on the Research Table, that aspect will automatically refill itself when it runs out - essentially making that aspect infinite. Certain nearby items can cause this to happen (ie: Placing a Air Crystal Cluster near your Research Table will make the Aer aspect glowy)

Check your thaumonomicon. It records all discovered aspects and lists how to craft them in the research table. That book is truly your friend for research.This part confused me. Sometimes I was able to scan an item that I had the pieces for and it would unlock something new. But at least one time I had to go to the table and unlock something in order to scan. It seemed oddly inconsistent. I think it was granum, or whatever...I couldn't scan anything that was alive until I constructed the correct aspect, but I'd had no problem discovering new aspects by scanning all kinds of non-living material.

Victus is actually the one combine that the Thaumonomicon actually tells you about, mainly because I think anything that has it also has more complex aspects that you can't learn until after you have Victus (I'll have to verify this later, but it's a good assumption/guess).
If you have BoP installed, you should check out ash and ash stones (or blocks? I always get them mixed up). They have permutatio on them in decent proportions and is readily available if you find the right biomes.Once more mod devs plug into the TC4 api, you'll start having more opportunities for aspects. For me permutatio mainly appears in expensive items that I don't necessarily want to melt down in large quantities just to make a magical item.
Research, Meh. I thinks there's enough aspect opportunities. Crafting is a weak point IMHO.
