- and what about the grandfather, what does his grandfather have to do with anything?

- his grandfather used to take him to the cinema, to the cinema of those days, where light shone out of the darkness and took over the hall. his grandfather once told him that people can be divided into those who talk and those who act and that he would have to decide which side to be on. and he decided to be on the side of the ones who act: he went to the lowest-grade schools, the vocational training schools, so he could get a job; and he got one, a job like so many other people, a job as an electrician. this is why today when he designs he puts into his work, as well as the inventiveness which always inspires new intuitions, the practical ability of someone who used to install light before he began inventing it.
