a lot of folks seem to think that we are so much smarter than we used to be and that's why this can't be right

personally i think we've been massively dumbed down thru the stay here

Yeah a lot of that goes on in Egyptology too sky.

I think what we're looking at with Vermeer is superior talent enhanced by an eidetic memory.

Some people seem to regard it as some kind of cheating, which I do not. The painter with Penn & Teller who had to learn as he went certainly benefited from these aids. Is the deblurring technology for photos cheating? If an artist could use this tech to sharpen their project then why not?
I don't think it's cheating either, it's just a tool, like using a different brush or a spatula.

I agree completely.
