You have to explain this question, PKII.
Anti-Light, meant Anti-Photones exists.
But Anti-Potones are the same thing like Photones, means Photones are their own Anti-Particle

I think PKII is suggesting that it might mean they might invent some kind of cloaking device. Lots of people are working on stuff like that.

Interesting story!
