  1. Extracting antimony

    Some antimony ore was crushed and then mixed with KOH in a porcelain crucible. Then it was heated till the KOH melted and a yellowness (sulfur) was extracted out of antimony.

What will you do when you reach that point where you see/understand/realize something so shockingly amazing in context that you can never sleep/be unconscious of it again, and you are literally a different "person"? Will you manage it with grace? Or flip out? Will you be able to pretend, for sleeping others, that nothing has changed? Or will you be a virus?
