Audio technology is different than any other type of engineering I know of. In normal engineering, we start with a certain problem, and then try to invent a solution to this problem.

However, just because one has a cool invention does not mean that the invention is useful or any improvement to the art.

Rat Robot Beats on Live Rats to Make Them Depressed

Rat Robot Beats on Live Rats to Make Them Depressed.

From Alexander Pope, “An Essay on Man”

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan,

The proper study of Mankind is Man.

Placed on this isthmus of a middle state,

A Being darkly wise, and rudely great:

With too much knowledge for the Sceptic side,

With too much weakness for the Stoics pride,

He hangs between; in doubt to act, or rest;

In doubt to deem himself a God, or Beast;

In doubt his mind or body to prefer;

Born but to die, and reasning but to err;

Alike in ignorance, his reason such,

Whether he thinks too little, or too much;

Chaos of Thought and Passion, all confusd;

Still by himself, abusd or disabusd;

Created half to rise and half to fall;

Great Lord of all things, yet a prey to all,

Sole judge of truth, in endless error hurld;

The glory, jest and riddle of the world.

Alexander Pope,  1733
