Letter 3 by The Joshua Letters on January 19th, 2012, 9:52 am
I’ve said before, that despite the fact that for the first time in history all of the information necessary to answer life’s great questions is available, I can’t find anyone that has put it all together and published it. I don’t know exactly why this is, but I speculate that it is not because the answers are overly complex but rather because they are all together unbelievable. This brings me to the last topic on truth itself that I will discuss prior to proceeding - belief. If you go through the trouble to discover and comprehend the truth, yet then for one reason or another chose not to believe it, what good is it?

The first picture has been taken with the open body of a digital camera, and a laser beam a pen) shining into the body. As you can see, the same patterns appear that are usually associated with constructive and destructive interference see in the double slit experiment, or in the use of two thin plates showing so-called Newton rings.
