Indeed. What was all that about rays? Did you arm your pyramids with ray guns?
Is it too much to ask for pyramids with frickin' laser beams?!
Seriously, though, I assume he is using the ray projection principle that, for instance, make Icehouse or Zendo koans involving "pointing at" possible:
It is not that uncommon a use of the tip of a pyramid. So much so, he didn't even reply to what you thought you were asking ("What do you mean by "ray"?), but to what he thought was MORE obscure or confusing (parallel v perpendicular).
Ah, of course. I've always understood the ray concept, but I've never heard it named as such and therefore was confused by what I read as some foreign made-up game concept. :\
