Given the multimedia mediation of our experience of the space around us, it was only a matter of time before this kind of speculation became a part of our virtual dialog. Did internet users spot the Loch Ness Monster on Apple Maps or is this just a trick of light and shadow?
The important point here is that these new technologies allow anyone with an internet connection to explore vast distant places they’ll likely never visit, finding the miraculous in the mundane.
This new discovery might just be a wake from a boat, and maybe the real mystery here is about a monkey that invented a camera in the sky. I hope to spot one of them on my infrared trail camera tonight.
We are the monster at the end of this book.
