Finished level 25

I'm glad that's over. I ran through most of the levels quickly. 18, 23 and 25 were the difficult ones, and for some reason I ran into a perceptual barrier at level 25 that took a while to break through. The bombs were nothing more than a nuisance, serving as a another kind of opaque object. I would have liked another live element such as a diffraction grating that 'splits' a beam into invisible counterparts (that can be reflected but not light up a bullb) until they are rejoined.

High ground?

I know it makes miltitary sense but with our fervent national drive toward empire, I worry mightily when I read about things like operation counterspace. Do we really need a policy to wipe out other countries space assets just because we don't like others looking down on us? This document talks about wiping out neutral or friendly space assets if we *think* they are being used by adversaries against us (us being the U. S.A.).
