    masking the reality

    A detailed examination of the world's greatest inventions highlights the perpetuation of the myth about the instant Big Idea, masking the reality
    of the incremental process at work. Ask who invented the steam engine, and you will most likely get the answer of James Watt, with the image of the young James sitting in his mother's kitchen being inspired by watching a kettle boil.

    Which do you think is the subject of "masking"? "a detailed examination" or "the myth"? I think the latter, but it could be wrong.

    The myth of the single moment of inspiration masks the reality of a long process of hard work.
