Oh, gravity I canunderstand. In Newton's memoirs he states it was a story he made up to hide the real truth, which is that dogs like table scraps, and the only way to guarantee table scraps will fall down, is by creating gravity. So when you see dogs "sleeping" all day, that is not sleep, that is the hard work of ensuring that everything falls DOWN to where the dogs can get it.

And if you think that is any less likely than "physics" you go explain Bose-Einstein Condensates or why one particle can be split and exist in two discrete places at the one same time. Brookhaven Labs proved that one about 15-20 years ago, spin 'this' particle and "that" one moves with it--despite the absence of any physical connection that we can observe.

So...FOVs...Yeah, when the numbers don't add up, there must be a politician in the room.
