    As I understand it, it means, "Match that blob to known blobs, see which blob is most like that blob, then guess that it is that blob, fill in as if at higher resolution with the blob you guessed it was, and print it."

    At least in "Blade Runner," we were assuming that the images involved were really not images at all, but super dense computer files created by Terrel Corp. With all the others, it's a choice: "You want I should see everything fuzzy, or you want I should see only a little really clearly? Oh, and the oceans are big, so that 1 m resolution (which isn't enough for your headline news) is going to be several billion waves a day."

    "man, proud man,/ Drest in a little brief authority,. . . Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven/ As make the angels weep; who, with our spleens,/ Would all themselves laugh mortal." -- Shakespeare, Measure for Measure II ii, 117-23
