Nothing is disappearing faster than balance in the global economy
so please stay on top of evolving stories. Next week will be big.
Your life as you know, it could disappear.
This week I seem drawn to stories about things that disappear. Many of you may be experiencing the rapidly accelerating closure ... faster and faster until it disappears. People are noticing the illusion of reality while looking at objects in their daily lives. Let's call this the Inception Effect when everything collapses at the end of the film and the creators of the illusion wake up.
Cloaking devices are advanced stealth technologies still in development that will cause objects, such as spaceships or individuals, to be partially or wholly invisible to parts of the electromagnetic (EM) spectrum. Fictional cloaking devices have been used as plot devices in various media for many years, but developments in scientific research show that real-world cloaking devices can obscure objects from at least one wavelength of EM emissions. Scientists already use artificial materials called metamaterials to bend light around an object.
today we talk about a way to make events disappear ... check this out.
Space-Time Cloak Possible, Could Make Events Disappear? National Geographic - July 12, 2011
Material would adjust speed of light to hide actions, physicists say. Fiber optic cables (pictured) could help prove the theories behind the new "space time" cloak concept.It's no illusion: Science has found a way to make not just objects but entire events disappear, experts say. According to new research by British physicists, it's theoretically possible to create a material that can hide an entire bank heist from human eyes and surveillance cameras. "The concepts are basically quite simple," said Paul Kinsler, a physicist at Imperial College London, who created the idea with colleagues Martin McCall and Alberto Favaro.
Unlike invisibility cloaks - some of which have been made to work at very small scales - the event cloak would do more than bend light around an object. Acoustic 'Invisibility' Cloaks Possible
Instead this cloak would use special materials filled with metallic arrays designed to adjust the speed of light passing through. In theory, the cloak would slow down light coming into the robbery scene while the safecracker is at work. When the robbery is complete, the process would be reversed, with the slowed light now racing to catch back up.
If the "before" and "after" visions are seamlessly stitched together, there should be no visible trace that anything untoward has happened. One second there's a closed safe, and the next second the safe has been emptied.

Our view of the world is determined by what our eyes see, our ears hear and our noses smell, or what the philosopher Bertrand Russell termed "sense data". But we know from simple optical illusions that our eyes can be fooled things are not necessarily always what they seem. However, the techniques that physicists have recently developed to manipulate the path taken by light and other electromagnetic radiation are not mere tricks of the eye: they are real advances that can result in some fascinating and useful effects.
