In that case x-ray photography and stellar photography is a "sham" also,
after all, the images are taken outside of the visible light spectrum, and
converted down to visible wavelengths. Better not look at those x-rays, I'll
be "duped!" I wonder if I thought an image of the horsehead nebula or the
pillars of creation was beautiful, would I be guilty of "duping" others by
somebody's standards?

Come to think of it, I'd better not listen to a thunderstorm either. After
all, all that random, naturally-occuring expansion of air waves can hardly
be listenable or beautiful.
