If we put a big object in front of a telescope out in space, we can block the light from the stars we look at and see the planets around him. But it has to be shaped like a flower to work right! I am excited about this field, I bet that we are going to see some incredible things with these (perhaps it will take a couple tries at getting that shape right though).
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.
