    2.) A: Although life is often filled with chaos and unpredictable futures, I do agree with the author Steven Johnson. I believe that as unpredictable this world is, that we must do our very best to predict to the best of our ability the effects each new innovation may bring. I would never have recognized some of these connections that have been made in this book between two things that could be so different. My favorite one being the air conditioning. The push for the invention of the air conditioner was to keep the ink from sliding off the papers. A reason that I would never connect myself. The simple explanation in my mind is, “well they were so sick of being hot, and they just needed to find a way to cool down.” As I sit in my air conditioned house, car, classrooms, etc. I disagree with the second quote and do believe that we already have a value system in place when it comes to deciding which strains to encourage and which to not. Coming from a Jesuit prep high school in Pennsylvania, my religion class was one that I often enjoyed and did well in. I have written countless papers on morality, along with a paper that I had to list and explain my value system. As a Roman Catholic, I believe I do have an established value system, and I think the world has a set standard of values. I do not believe that we really need to worry a whole lot about whether it is worth tangential cost. A perfect example and the example that Mr. Johnson uses is cars! Although many people die in…

    Many optical illusions take advantage of our perception, being a "construction project" and our brain constantly trying to estimate the best guess, leading for us to be easily tricked. The moon illusion is an optical illusion which causes the moon to appear larger near the horizon than it does higher up in the sky. One of the most famous illusion and most widely discussed has been the so called "Moon Illusion". For many years psychologists have known about this and have proposed many theories to…

    Fiber optic communication systems are light wave systems that employ optical fibers for transmitting information from one point to other through an optical fiber. The driving force behind the widespread use of fiber optic communications is the demand for economic, reliable transmission media that can transmit required information capacity. The transmission capacity of optical fibers has drastically improved over the years. Today, optical communications up to 100 gb/s for several kilometers have…

    Optical Illusions are a neurological phenomenon that allows a person to believe an alternate reality based on what they see visually or encounter haptically. Illusions can come in all shapes and sizes and can be presented to us in many different ways sometimes, subliminally throughout our daily lives. The most famous and widely studied illusion is the Muller-Lyer illusion. This illusion consists of a horizontal line with opposite facing arrows at either end. The next portion uses the same…

    Optical Fibres By Jaydan Fibre optics are wires made of pure strands of glass or plastic spliced together (weaved together). These wires are as thin as strands of hair so their can be millions of them in a fibre optic cable. The wires are in bundles called optical cables and are used to transmit digital information over long distances. Fibre optics can be used for telecommunication, networking, decorations, endoscopy and much more because they are flexible, carry much more information than…

    What is Fiber Optic Cables? Back in the day we used copper wires for our tele-communication and to interconnect throughout the world. However as technology and machines start to grow more powerful, we are forced to put a change in this production of copper wires. The wire density becomes a very critical factor in the modern era, however the limit in size must always result in better performance. Fiber optics proves to be highly effective in its high bandwidth, as it allows on a single fiber to…

    Review of Literature Introduction: Optical illusions are usually described as visual images that differ from reality. The eyes and brain “sees” something that does not really match the physical measurement of the image. Optical illusions can function in many ways, they can be images that are different from the objects that make them up, they can also be ones that come from the effects on the eyes and brain through excessive stimulation, and others where the eye and brain creates unconscious…

    depending on the angle at which strikes the surface. This principal is the heart of the operation of optical fibers. Just by altering and controlling the angle at which light is incident on the fiber, we can transmit this light signal efficiently. By this principle of Total Internal Reflection the ray of light is trapped within the denser glass of the center of the composite cylindrical glass fiber, the core as if it is guided down the core in a zigzag path of successive reflections. These light…
