I forgot... I understand relativity quite well (for an EE),
however I still consider SR a mystery. Its in this vain that I am very
much aware of the issues of after the fact knowledge can make one rather
flippant to certain achievements. This does not change the fact that
*most* new things are of no "superior" merit.
As a musician, one of my examples is this. Why clap when a band does a
good set? They are paid to sound good. Its their job. They're supposed
to sound good. There is nothing of merit in a band sounding good. There
is only demerit for one that sounds bad.
