What is Blinding Light?
I decided to name this site Blinding Light because of an analogy that came to me while I was doing research.
Light is what allows us to see. Without light there is utter darkness and you can’t see a thing. In fact, even night vision sees infrared light. A dim light allows you to see a little bit, normal room lighting allows you to see better. Many of the science labs that are often my topic of scrutiny use even brighter lights for picking up on little detail. But what happens when light gets too bright? It stops serving its function. We see less and less until we can’t see a thing because we’re not accustomed to it. The brightest light can blind us permanently. Just try making out sunspots by staring at the sun. So my question to you is this: In a world guided by the twin suns of reason and science is there anything so blindingly obvious that we miss it entirely? That’s why I’ve been looking into the shadowy areas of human perception, all the inconvenient things that are ignored or dismissed.
