I need a bit of break now because me swede is mashed. I have been doing another trawl trough the patent documents cited as contra-indications for my application. They pointed me to things like this Nature Review article.
It looks like one of the applications was very heavily stimulated by this article and I am not sure how they manged to get grant. Some of the embodiments seem a tad cut and paste. When I was trawling the quantum optics patents a while back, I kept getting this feeling, this question, “how come they got that past the examiner?”
I wrote about a molecular exciton in my Ph.D. theses. The two chromophores were coupled by strong hydrogen bonding. Guess what? I started thinking about molecular excitons coupled to a resonant cavity. Physicists are not so keen on molecules.
I am pretty sure that the examination was a first pass only one, because if the examiner had drilled down into the detail, he would have seen that the two contra-indications are concerning very different phenomena. But I do accept his argument that a couple of dependent claims might be obvious. After all, me with my rusty brain, saw them.
There is this thing that many people skim and conclude. They jump to conclusions at haste without looking at ALL the evidence. There are a lot of people in the world who are not thorough. They think that have understood but they have not checked their understanding. People do not check, they assume..
Surface skimming or fathoming the depths?
I guess I have the second ray approach…
I have been burrowing like a mole and storing my nuts. Tomorrow after I have left things to my background intuitional processors, I’ll draft my reply.
It is 33˚C in the shade outside and will probably go one degree more.
That is a toasty…
The Direction of Ray II
“The Scholar knows the truth. All is revealed to him. Surrounded by his books, and sheltered in the world of thought, he burrows like a mole, and finds his way into the darkness; he arrives at knowledge of the world of natural things. His eye is closed. His eyes are opened wide. He dwells within his world in deep content.
Detail on detail enter into the content of his world of thought. He stores the nuggets of the knowledge of the world, as a squirrel stores its nuts. The storehouse now is adequately full… Sudden a spade descends, for the thinker tends the garden of his thought, and thus destroys the passages of mind. Ruin arrives, destroying fast the storehouse of the mind, the safe security, the darkness and the warmth of a satisfied enquiry. All is removed. The light of summer enters in and the darkened crannies of the mind see light… Naught is left but light, and that cannot be used. The eyes are blinded and the one eye seeth not as yet…
Slowly the eye of wisdom must be opened. Slowly the love of that which is the true, the beautiful and good must enter the dark passages of worldly thought. Slowly the torch of light, the fire of right must burn the garnered treasures of the past, yet show their basic usefulness…
The seven ways of light must wean away the attention of the Scholar from all that has been found and stored and used. This he repulses and finds his way into that Hall of Wisdom which is built upon a hill, and not deep under ground. Only the opened eye can find this way.”
” ‘Again I stand; a point within a circle and yet myself.’ The love of love must dominate, not love of being loved. The power to draw unto oneself must dominate, but into the worlds of form that power must some day fail to penetrate. This is the first step towards a deeper search.
The word goes forth from soul to form: ‘Release thyself from all that stands around, for it has naught for thee, so look to me. I am the One who builds, sustains and draws thee on and up. Look unto me with eyes of love, and seek the path which leads from the outer circle to the point.
I, at the point, sustain. I, at the point, attract. I, at the point, direct and choose and dominate. I, at the point, love all, drawing them to the center and moving forward with the travelling points towards that great Center where the One Point stands.’ What mean you by that Word? “
