Invisibility is a very useful basic skill of orthobionomy.
I stumbled into invisibility, or first learned some vestige of the skill through play, unaware that I was learning anything or doing anything but play.
Now I grasping better how to turn it off and on. It has a lot to do with a rate of change scale and that has everything to do with meaning. (What is the meaning of Meaning?) To be invisible to another is the same as to say one means absolutely nothing to another.
Chesterton played with this theme a bit in his Father Brown stories, a murderer hiding in plain sight, invisible.
Taking a leap here. Astronomers, astrophysicists: those sorts of folk, say that something in the neighborhood of 97% of the universe is 'hidden' from us, inaccessible to any of our senses or their extensions. Maybe this is not a statement about the Universe but a statement about Science.
The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

and, if I do not save it, I do not save myself. —JOSÉ ORTEGA Y GASSET
Whatever affects one directly affects all indirectly. For some strange reason I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. And you can never be what you ought to be until I am what I ought to be––this is the interrelated structure of reality.
—MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.
Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.
—JEANETTE WINTERSON Gut Symmetries
