Philosophical Concepts

 

“Technology is our word for stuff we don’t understand.”

- Douglas Adams

 

 “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
- Arthur C. Clarke’s Third Law

 

Arthur C. Clarke’s Three Laws:

 

          1.  “When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. 

            When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

 

          2.  The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

 

          3.  Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”

- Arthur C. Clarke’s Three Laws

 

         4.  When technology becomes sufficiently obsolete, it becomes an art form.

- Hytowitz’s Third Law of Technology and Rule #8 of Science

 

 

“Technology is the use of increasingly accurate, self-evident, and reproducible information to replace energy and matter.

The benefit of technology is NOT in what it lets people accomplish, but in how it improves the character of people.”

- Hytowitz’s Rule #9 of Science

 

“As a culture we are only as good as our memory.  As a species we are only as good as our vision.”

 

“Knowledge is good.”

        Emil Faber (“Animal House”)

 

“It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irreverence to their studies;

they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it.” 
- Jacob Bronowski, “The Ascent of Man

 

The first rule of science is to challenge your own assumptions.

Origin of the Dyop®

(Acrobat Document)

 

 

 

 

Cyclops – The World’s Largest Vision Test Device

Acrobat Document

Cyclops is a 10 foot diameter Dyop® image used at Boy Scout Camp Rainey Mountain to determine

the line of sight distance from Big Rock to the Camp Administration Building.

The rotating Dyop® segments were moved inward to reduce the rotating image diameter in 3 inch increments.

The Dyop® acuity endpoint Image diameter of 9 feet 6 inches indicates a Big Rock Viewing Distance of 3800 feet.

From the “Gates of Repentance” Prayer Book: 

“Just as the hand, held before the eye, can hide the tallest mountain, so the routine of everyday life can keep us from seeing the vast radiance and the secret wonders that fill the world.”

                        - Chasidic, 18th Century

 

The Scientists’ Prayer:

“Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of the Universe, who enlightens us with Your Commandments and allows us to use honest weights and measures to better see and understand the Universe and You.”

                          - Hytowitz’s Research Prayer
