I am not paranoid! I'm simply curious about how he could achieve such an action as looking through his telescope to look at sunspots and obviously that wasn't the case. Though I've heard during watching lectures of historians and astronomers, Alex Fillippenko for one, that the story of Galileo's sun spotting experience was done through him looking through a telescope, though I could be wrong. I have to re-watch these lectures to make sure. Not everything is as it seems, and I am just trying to find an explanation for such a case. Being paranoid is by checking every packet of food for traces of titanium, this is not paranoia but curiosity of a strange case.
