This is the third question of the series: The Gnosis questions

"Link a phrase which means being depressed,
A phrase which means propitious future,
Something utilizing the phenomenon which results when film is exposed for a long time,
And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids.
"
Who am I?

Edit: It was not grasses, but gases. Apologies...

Note: Who am I ?

Hint:

1. He is or rather 'was' a famous personality in his field of work.
2. All these four lines fetch one(or two) word each, and are his famous work.

I think I've got it this time.

You are

Pablo Picasso

a phrase which means being depressed

feeling blue: Picasso's blue period

A phrase which means propitious future,

looking rosy: his Rose period

Something utilizing the phenomenon which results when film is exposed for a long time,

the only thing i can think of here is Light Painting, a technique which uses long exposure photography, and of course picasso was a painter

And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids.

crystallization: his Crystal period

My guess is that you are

Rain

a phrase which means being depressed

Under the weather: rain is a type of weather

A phrase which means propitious future

Pennies from heaven: something raining down

Something utilizing the phenomenon which results when film is exposed for a long time

This one I'm a little iffy on. When film is overexposed, the picture is "washed out", and the rain can cause a washout at a game or outdoor event.

And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids.

Precipitation, which rain is a form of.

  • $\begingroup$ Again, a good try but no. It was not what I'm looking for. Who am I a famous personality. $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Apr 19 '16 at 4:13

Partial thoughts:

being depressed - feeling blue
propitious future - ?
Something utilizing the phenomenon which results when film is exposed for a long time - burn scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids - freezing

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Only first one is right. $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Apr 19 '16 at 4:12
  • $\begingroup$ @ABcDexter So might propitious future be a golden future? $\endgroup$ – Vincent Apr 19 '16 at 8:31

Are you...

Mr Freeze

I think this because...

You said on kamenf's answer that "being depressed - feeling blue" is right. Mr Freeze is blue as seen from here: picture

Not too sure about other parts, however:

You said my other answer to "And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids" was almost there. Perhaps you meant freezing? Not to mention Mr Freeze is a scientist.

Perhaps the phrase you mention is...

"In this universe, there's only one absolute... everything freezes!" This is Mr Freeze's quote. Although there are other quotes that suit other keywords, they don't contain the freeze keyword. It's always worth giving a shot I guess.

I do not have the complete answer but here's what I've worked out so far:

"Link a phrase which means being depressed,"

feeling blue.

A phrase which means propitious future,

A golden future or a bright future?

Something utilizing the phenomenon which results when film is exposed for a long time,

expsosing a film to light uses a phenomenon which is called: Photoelectric.

And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids.

well if you freez liquids or gases they become solid, so lowering the temperature. the scientific names for it are Deposition and Solidification.

At first i thought it was:

Carl sagan, because of his statement A Pale blue dot, (but the only thing matching there is blue, you might say (for the birght future, everything falls pale by comparison) but still that would only give me 3 words (Pale blue dot) where i have 4 sentences which might even give me more than 1 word each.

Then i though:

It might be albert einstein, when you think about photoelectric you might not directly think about him but this was a part of his work.

So no real answers yet, but maybe this helps others. I'll surely update this when I figure out more.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ A fair answer, but providing another hint is that the person is not related to Science. $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Apr 19 '16 at 8:56

I am figuring out parts of it.

"And the scientific process by which liquids(or gases) turn to solids"

Deposition is the process where a gas turns directly into solid without passing through the liquid phase. Solidification is the process where liquid turns into a solid when the temperature is lowered below its freezing point.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You are quite close, but the exact word which should be going into connect is not yet written. $\endgroup$ – ABcDexter Apr 18 '16 at 20:52
