I watch stuff on YouTube so I am constantly algoryihmed.
That is frequently a good thing.
An example of that is the algorithm that served up an hour and forty minute Neil deGrasse Tyson encounter with Robert Krulwich.
It was a sublime experience.
About twenty minutes in Dr. Tyson said something that may be one of not very many things that have changed how I look at things.
Actually it refined deeply how I look at things.
He talked about horizons in the expanding universe, and the importance of vantage point.
I stewed on it overnight - I had seen the video late one evening - and couldn't forget it.
I drew a diagram that I thought represented what he had said.
I saw several inconsistencies.
I watched the video again to see if I had been hallucinating.
Once I found the spot that I thought that I had seen - I HAD seen it - I rolled it back until, to the best of my ability, I thought that I understood it; I was able to ameliorate the inconsistencies and drew a new diagram.
Here it is on yellow lined legal paper.
