You wonder what popped this into mind. Actually an old Starship song. Don't know the title, as most 80s 90s pop songs don't have much relevence to me. What I do remember is Marconi being used within the song. Which made me think of this. How many believe Marconi invented the radio? Really... Gas lighting or spinning happens even by our own rational. To prove it a added something visual to make you ponder about being properly spun. Ha!

Primary colours brought to light
Scrutinized by interpretation
When all they see is white

Blurred within a spun reflection
A conundrum, how can this be right?
Truth hidden, within moderation

Noise unseen, noise unheard
Static's paradox, in being dynamic
Not one had spoken a word
Silence in contrast, dramatic

When understood they applaud
A money monger soon saw
No accolade, a scientist appalled
An idea stolen but not his law

What's in their correlation?
What is it, your not seeing?
At a loss, with rotation?
Is seeing, make believing?
