perfect camoflage!

So, researchers have figured out how make a material that will absorb 99.9% of incoming light. So, does that mean you can only “see” it because you can’t see it? If it’s not reflecting any light, then you only think you see it, because you can’t actually “see” no light, you could only see the fact there is nothing there, and presume there had to be something there.

Or maybe I just need more sugar.
