You're not breathing any more Edith.

Not everyone is capable of breathing such rarefied air...

Every breath has the potential for a new idea.

“No army can withstand the strength of an idea whose time has come.”
― Victor Hugo, French poet, playwright, novelist, essayist, visual artist, statesman, human rights campaigner, and perhaps the most influential exponent of the Romantic movement in France (1802-1885)


“For millions of years, mankind lived just like the animals. Then something happened which unleashed the power of our imagination. We learned to talk and we learned to listen. Speech has allowed the communication of ideas, enabling human beings to work together to build the impossible. Mankind's greatest achievements have come about by talking, and its greatest failures by not talking. It doesn't have to be like this. Our greatest hopes could become reality in the future. With the technology at our disposal, the possibilities are unbounded. All we need to do is make sure we keep talking.”
― Stephen W. Hawking, English theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author (1942-)

an experimental method of detecting dislocations in crystals; it involves chemical or heat treatment of the crystal, so that small but visible particles (complexes of foreign atoms) appear in the volume of the crystal, along dislocation lines. The decorating particles must be small enough to differentiate defects but at the same time big enough for the particles to be visible in a microscope or ultra-microscope using visible light or infrared radiation.

The decoration method has established the existence of networks and other complex dislocation configurations. An advantage of the dislocation method is its great vividness; a disadvantage is that the decorating particles fix the dislocations and eliminate their mobility; therefore, only static arrangements of dislocations can be investigated by the decoration method.
