37. INFERIOR CAMERA - SUPERIOR IMAGES

DESPITE NATURAL SELECTION THE HUMAN EYE STILL REMAINS A POORLY DESIGNED INSTRUMENT FOR SEEING EXACTNESS.

FORTUNATELY THE HUMAN BRAIN IS CAPABLE OF AMAZING IMAGING PRECISION WHICH MAKES UP FOR THE LACK OF PERFORMANCE BY OUR RETINAS.

SPECIFICALLY, OUR VISUAL CAMERA HAS STRUCTURAL SHORTCOMINGS INCLUDING BACKWARD-FACING PHOTO RECEPTORS, A RELATIVELY LARGE BLIND SPOT AND SERIOUS LENS DISTORTIONS, AS WELL AS A WIDE VARIETY OF POSSIBLE GENETIC EYE DEFECTS.

HAPPILY, THERE ARE OCCASIONAL POSITIVE HUMAN REPORTS, SUCH AS BETTER THAN NORMAL DEGREES OF PERIPHERAL VISION, EXCEPTIONAL SEE-IN-THE-DARK ABILITY AND EVEN THE RARE SENSORY GIFT OF HAWK-LIKE, BEYOND 20-20 EYESIGHT.

INTERESTINGLY, FOR MOST PEOPLE THEIR BEST LIFETIME VISION IS AT ABOUT AGE TEN AND RECENT RESEARCH HAS DETERMINED THAT HUMAN SIGHT QUALITY EVOLVED MOSTLY DUE TO THE THREAT FROM SNAKES.
