I See You

When developing the retinal biometric identifier, there was a stage where the electronics that connected the camera to the computer was called an Interface Control Unit (we used the acronym ICU). Acronyms were a big deal in electronics in the early eighties. As ideas for application of the invention grew, one could not help but to think of the health industry acronym ICU for Intensive Care unit. But after seeing James Cameron's Avatar and in the context of the invention disclosed in this blog ... another minds' eye link - I see you. More here than meets the eye, if you get my drift.

So I asked her, "What phrase do you think represented 'the arc of the story'?"

"The Turning Point", she replied referring to when the protagonist first realized the deep meaning of the conflict and his role in it. Two views from two genders and on deeper consideration he thought, pretty much the same thing.
