The apocalyptic dynamics of the rush of the message, conditions the lighting to take the same route. But really the light is the same and does not change its properties because it is and will always remain the universal peacemaker.

We understand and know the Sun as the main promoter of holiday and tourism. It is an excellent salesman of skin creams and successful broker in the sale of sunglasses. We know almost nothing about the Sun. Engineers apparently use it to sell energy saving appliances and designers to raise their arrogance.
