Holy COW!

'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

Everyone does realize, I hope, that this is a man being lauded for reproducing something a machine is better known for?  That is a marvel of the 21st century I guess.  For so long it was just opposite.  But yes, the drawings are amazing!
