What are my Thoughts about Rejection of my Research?

I think it is best summed up by these statements:

The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter — for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes.

― Nikola Tesla

“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

In summary, there has to be Pioneers in everything, even if you have to suffer for the fact that other people may be ignorant in their understanding of certain facts.  Some people love to remain in their ignorance, and even dedicate themselves to be a part of groups that love ignorance and maintenance of the status quo.
