Your first two statements are undoubtedly true.

The third is open to interpretation. By re-arranging the information you have you can make parts of that more prominent at the expense of the other parts. The now more prominent information can be of significant scientific interest. For an example of useful deconvolution, see https://britastro.org/observations/o...089659d4038718 and https://britastro.org/observations/o...cd9ab1092010e3
