A Study Of Galaxy Completeness Limits In NED – astronotes
I wanted to generate a few plots to show the extent of the incompleteness and the anisotropy of the sample of galaxies catalogued in NASA/IPAC Extragalactic Database (NED). Below is plot of a northern section of the probability map of the gravitational wave GW150914[1], overlaid with the PS1 survey footprint and all galaxies catalogued in NED within that footprint. The sharp drop in galaxy counts below dec ∼−3∘∼−3∘ serves to reveal the boundary of SDSS DR6

Completeness Effect – cognitive lode by ribot
[[Among two identical sandwiches, one of which was sliced in the middle, people preferred the "complete" (unsliced) version of the sandwich.

"they felt that the unsliced sandwich ‘had more quantity’ than the sliced one. More generally, research has shown that we humans desire completeness , and especially asethetic designs that suggest unity. We also feel that incomplete experiences feel ‘unresolved’."

“incompletely” shaped products are assumed to be of lesser quantity than completely shaped ones. We’re also much more likely to purchase complete products over those seen as incomplete. Perceiving that incomplete items are smaller can also influence people to consume more of them.

if you’re trying to increase consumption of a product, incomplete sizes will often leave customers coming back for more. For example, in one of their follow-up studies, the authors found that people who were given chocolate pieces that were incomplete in shape (irregular) consumed significantly more chocolate than participants given complete shaped (whole) chocolates.

the “eat only half rule” can backfire and serve as a dangerous incentive to let one’s guard down

Aim for completeness in your product design. Customers prefer this, and will buy more of it next to a product that looks incomplete. An example of an incomplete product would be a shampoo bottle with a hole in the middle for easy holding. ]]

Unbuilding — Lined & Unlined
Here's another something that's too large to unpack in a quote or two or three or more, so just one, then read and view (many images) the rest.

"Unlike the thesis, Antithesis was an optional class. Instead of a constant, year-long process, it was interstitial, happening during a “down time” in the year. We didn’t really have class meetings — instead, I spent my time hanging out in the studio. Everyone loosened up. After thinking intensively about the thesis for 12 weeks, it was time to stop thinking about it — at least, consciously. The goal was not to keep pushing forward on the thesis but to get new projects started in parallel."

Gamasutra - News - IndieCade: Inside Jonathan Blow's Puzzle Design Process
“Braid is a platform game and a game like that has a relatively small number of things in it,” he said. “Keys, monsters, platforms, doors… for the purpose of completeness, if you are asking what happens if some things are immune to your manipulation of time, you will get an incomplete answer unless you test it with everything in your world: what happens if monsters are immune, what happens if doors are.”
