David Marr would probably disagree with all of these notions due to his theories that he brain really only sees in 2.5 dimensions. The basic premise of this theory can be found here.

One thought on “Seeing in more dimensions

  1. The interesting thing about 2.5 dimensions is that while we may only be able to see in 2 or 2.5, we can sense 3 dimensions with other senses besides sight.
