Every word stated in the article I wrote is true. Including the much-maligned laser hit on me. At the time it happened, I didn't believe it either.
Seemed too fantastic to me as well. That is, until I got home at looked at the back of my coat, and there it was. A burn mark about 1-2mm in diameter.
It wasn't there before, that was certain.
People tend to malign anything that exists outside their paradigm. This seems to be human nature, to "stay inside the box" or as some call it,
their "comfort zone."
Others like Edison chose to step "outside the box" and by doing so, broke new ground. Without people like him, not only would you not have a
monitor to read this on, but you would also be cleaning and filling kerosene lamps every day...
What is at stake now, is our freedom. Even our freedom to write and speak what we want to. Yet few take notice of these precious values being taken
away, until one day they wake up one morning and realize what's happened....when its too late. People that spend their energies maligning someone
else, are often that type of person still asleep.
