Philosophy Wire: Graphene. Hearing. God…


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-08-20]: “Humans and other animals effectively use acoustic waves to communicate with each other. Ultrasonic acoustic waves are intriguing because they do not interfere with normal voice communication and can be highly directional with long range. Therefore, wireless ultrasonic radio is a useful communications method. Here we find that graphene has mechanical properties that make it ideally suited for wide-band ultrasonic transduction. Using simple and low-cost fabrication methods we have produced an ultrasonic microphone and ultrasonic radio prototypes.” scientists announce. [1] Even though we seem to have boundaries, we can create things of “higher” class than us. In a limitless world there can be no limits. Even though we are little worms, we can touch the higher essence of things. Even though we are finite, we can see the infinite. Because we are not finite. Because we are not worms. Because we are boundless… [higher limit: God?]
