Let us assume that we want to determine the structure of some object which is invisible. It has the supernatural property that it is non responsive to any electromagnetic radiation such as light. But, to make the example more concrete, let’s assume it is an invisible, cream colored, 1984 Alpha Romeo Spider (curiously, exactly like the author’s). If we have never seen such a glorious object before, how can we learn of its structure? How can we visualize it?
