Re: Now you see it.....
If you think about the reason the monolith has always been such a potent in regards to allocating significance to a proximity, site, place, idea, notion; you will evnetually realize that it was not the size/weight of the thing, the rock etc, that was effective it was the resounding, emanating, radiating, vibrating, loaded, barely-harnessed, about-to-burst, aggravated stasis...all these things are NOT the result of optical perception. They are purely cognitive, and cognition is not attached to a sense-organ (no, not even the bulbous brain). So where are the sensors? Are they meaty? or are they leaping legs of magneti, or are they anti-material tentacles? Back to the ol' substance and void conundrum.
