So, where does that leave us? Oh yes -- it leaves us back where we started: you do not understand diffraction in the least.

If that were the only thing he doesn't understand, the situation would be vastly improved. Regrettably it isn't.

There is no sin in not understanding. The sin lies in refusing to learn. The greater sin is to be proud of the first sin.

Let me guess: you hate the sin but love the sinner.

You're making me feel 'itchy'

Thus, a small "cottage industry" of techno-nannies emerged and thrived in the foral domains, pedantic inquisitors whose very souls have dedicated their efforts to mitigating the wanton self-misuse of "false senses of concreteness". An often thankless, but nevertheless sanctious, societal role that will surely (soon come Thunderdome) be of paramount importance, as future luminaries diligently search the ancient disk-drive scrolls, duly discounting any and all "bum steers".

... i'm struggling with a strong sense of the ephemeral.

Perhaps that we inevitably (creatively, as well as validly) re-invent the past behind us. Thus, our inner sense of the non-concreteness of all that we hold dear and essential in the moment will ineluctably change as viewed through the prisms of our implicitly subjective (and only imagining comfort and concreteness afforded by an unattainable "objectivity") conscious thought processes.

The utmost abstractions are the true weapons with which to control our thought of concrete fact.
