“Any fool can know. The point is to understand.” — Albert Einstein

Did you see yesterday’s #TuesdayTopic? Today’s picture is another example of photoelasticity – a colourful photograph that started as a plain and bland photograph of a discarded piece of bubble wrap. If you look at the photo, it bears very little resemblance to bubble wrap, does it? And whilst I might know how it was produced, I cannot begin to understand how it all works! I just know that it looks good – well, to me anyway!

And I also know that the Bible says that: “a fool’s proud talk becomes a rod that beats him, but the words of the wise keep them safe.”   Proverbs 14:3 (NLT)   So, I won’t even begin to try to explain the process of photoelasticity and how the photo was produced, I’m quite happy to admit that I just don’t know! That will keep me safe.

Coming soon – #WednesdayWisdom booklet, with a collection of quotes.
