Some out of the box thinking. How we see.

This ted video is really cool Optical illusions. It has some interesting insight on ways to approach flower detection.

Things to think about:

“… it means that the same image could have an infinite number of possible real world sources…”

“… the light that falls on to your eye -sensory information- is literary meaningless, because it could be literary anything…”

“… because in the statistics of your past experience it would have been useful to do so, so you do so again…”

“… the brain didn’t actually evolve to see the world the way it is, we can’t. Instead the brain evolved to see the world the way it was useful to see in the past…”

“… the way we see is by continually redefining normality…”

Hats off to the ppl at TED….
