Ed,

   Nudging this thread in the direction of PLUG-talk, I invoke my rights and
duties as a Doctor of Philosophy to ask, What is reflected in this huge
mirror? [1]

   Do we see reflected an image of where we've been, or one of where we should
be heading? Does everyone see this reflection, or does it take special
viewing devices (e.g., the red and blue "3D" glasses of the 1950s) to see it
clearly? What cultural, societal, or educational values are reflected in this
huge mirror?
