Making this little creature was a lot of fun. I think it was speaking to me and told me it wants a hat. So I have made it a hat.
Looking at transparent objects always remind me of how our eyes see objects by processing light waves reflected off the object or absorbed by it. On our two dimensional retinas, all we have is this continues distribution of electromagnetic waves that differ slightly in amplitudes and wave lengths. From those data, our brains translate them into into the three dimensional world we see.
This richness of this visible world (including all the stars, planets and galaxies) is only 5% of the known universe. Knowing there are 95% of 'darkness' invisible to us is very humbling. And they pass through our body every second.
