I am compelled to ask a question. Given that the light conditions in the original paper models is what inspired me to follow this line of inquiry and study, how does something without physical properties be so central in a discussion about things essentially physical, such as parts and wholes? Should light be considered another part in a study of parts and whole? Or is light something entirely separate – a catalyst for demonstration: The muse upon which poetry can meet the eye and delight. Perhaps it is both.
