    I see in front of me
    a strange projection
    one plane of symmetry
    rooted in place
    conductive, both ways
    probably reacts slowly with the air
    very convenient but unnecessary
    low tech
    a connector of sorts

    What do I see in front of me?

    I was going to say computer, but low-tech goes better with T.V.

    Exactly what I was thinking. And that is a black-and-white TV with a brown wooden frame, just like the ones that Russians made in Soviet Union. I still have one like that at home.

    not sure how it qualifies as rooted in place.

    The object in question is in the solid state at room temperature (and well above).

    I tire of this. It's a metal hook screwed into the ceiling.
