Hi Gerald Check the next sentence in that post. The possibility of your 'purely optical' interpretation was the reason for me next providing the data backing - the new-born kitten experimants - for 'brain control' of the eye. The eye is an optical mechanism (ie. all its parts, including the rods and cones, are dedicated to detecting photons) and it contains _no_ cortical matter for processing or converting image data. Any such operations could only start in the optical tectum, the first connections of the optic nerve into the brain (although further evidence - see ref below - says that other processing and discrimination takes place deeper in the brain). Therefore if the eye can be 'ordered' to ignore certain photon arrangements and be 'blind' to certain objects which it otherwise can optically 'see' - as the kitten experiments demonstrate - that 'order' must come from the brain. The Profs Ian Stewart & Jack Cohen ('Collapse of Chaos' 1994) in their chapter 'Eyes Are Not Cameras', show that the purely optical interpretation of vision is _not_ sufficient to cover even well known facts - and say "Indeed, it is so complicated that we currently have no very good idea of just how it works, and that's one reason why robot vision remains in a very rudimentary state." p. 155 Cheers Ray D BTW - We primitive humans have gotten far enough to successfully interfere with the sensory apparatus of various beings (plant and insect pests - so far as is publically known). It doesn't take a genius to realize that even slightly more advanced folk could well be interfering with _our_ sensory mechanisms. Listen to 'Strange Days...
