Ono writes: "The apparent emissivity has deep minima around d = 0[degrees] at which specularly reflected radiation escapes through the lateral hole.
Thus, specularly reflected as well as diffracted multiples can be attenuated simultaneously.
This is valid if neutrons are reflected specularly from a horizontal mirror and if any influence of a scatterer, or that of any other force, is negligible to those neutrons which penetrate through the slit.
The specularly disturbing, paranoia-prompting uncertainties of author and reader brought about by both inscriptive frame and inscribed content leads to a recontainment of disruptive effects by returning to a kind of materiality in the same moment of its flickering virtuality.
