In science:

Astronomy began as a visual science, first through careful observations of the sky using either an eyepiece or the naked eye, then on to the preservation of those images with photographic media and finally the digital encoding of that information via CCDs.

This result is remarkable in two respects: (i) the double linear relation, not obvious to the naked eye, separates investors into two groups (ii) the ranges of values where the transition occurs is very similar across the three categories of traders.

Indeed, in this regime the dip of the wave function ψν (y) at y = 0 approaches zero, but looking at Fig. 3 it is seen by the naked eye that the two functions are orthogonal (one is even and the other is odd; this is not self-evident from the density probability graphs).

If in a roughly 20% subsample of events jets are visible to the naked eye, it is reasonable to assume that most high energy events are jet events! Because relatively soft partons are the source of the jet phenomena described above, gluons rather than quarks will dominate particle production at very high energy.
