Should it be called as “disappearance” or “appearance”? When an overcurrent runs through a tungsten filament in the dark room, the filament that was not visible emits strong light and burns out. The afterimage of the light is burned into the eyes for a moment. (or while) Photographic paper records the trace of the light of the moment as an image. It is as if the image of filament visualizes the large-scale structure of the universe spreading out through the space like a net. The moment could be “disappearance” but also could be “appearance," perceived as the ambiguous event.
