A quick speculation.
As leaves when shined upon show a little transparency. I wonder. Why is transparency a good choice. My general answer to the question why is that whatever it is it should make sense to network. So this could then effect the network. And if so how would this be beneficial.
In machine learning. You can add many columns of data. It does ?not matter if some columns are less important. So the leaf being a network in 3D. Light would get the network more data. More columns in the 3D physics network space. It would make the processes ?better.
So I speculate that there is some efficiency gain because a network with lots of good data can converge faster. Get to the right values faster.
So I wonder if a battery, electric cables could also benefit from some sort of transparency being physical process networks.
