    I always wondered how eyes work. And existing without depth perceptipn would be weird.

    what if you had a massive plane that took in light converging toward a point?
    even if the point were really far away, STUFF WOULD GET BIGGER GOING FURTHER AWAY!

    If you had a big screen of selenite and you looked through it at a pair of railroad tracks, would the rails still converge in the distance? If not how would that look?

    Your brain will never actually see a single photon of light. Your brain will live it’s entire existence inside your completely dark cranium. (unless you have injury or surgery). The only reason it knows there’s a world out there is because of the sensory organs attached to it sending signals for it to interpret. Your entire life is but a perception. Every sight, every sound, every feeling you’ve ever felt is your brain’s best guess as to what’s going on around it.

    Micheal, selenite is a kind of salt crystal. It is, as you have noticed, very fragile. Selenite dissolves in water.

    Hey Michael! You should do another video on mineral optics, but instead about polarizing filters and the effect of light shifting through a non-isotropic media! (Pleochroism/Birefringence). Maybe tie it into why when you wear polarized sunglasses you can see interference colors in objects/screens/etc. that you wouldn't normally see!

    Basically our eyes are a colorful pinhole camera...

  • Doctor Owl
    Doctor Owl 16 days ago

    I have a question! Objects look smaller to us when further away because of the way our retinas receive light (upside down through a pinhole). That's also how many optical illusions work, like the Ebbinghaus illusion, by messing with all those neat tricks our eyes & brain use to interpret the world. Is that also why people lose their depth perception when blind in one eye (or simply closing one)? Without the ability to distinguish the size of objects in relation to their distance by using both eyes to "triangulate" (bi-angulate?) this information, it makes sense that someone would lose their sense of depth. If I close one eye, I bump into everything & miscalculate how far I need to reach to grab things, plus a lot of optical illusions stop having an effect.

    Everything would actually look severely zoomed in and only in circles, consuming your full vision. You could only see single spots of an object at once, as anything you look at that is out of focus, wouldn't even be in your field of view.

    You should have included an optical audio cable! I love blowing people's minds with those.
    Try it at home, land the other end on your phone's screen and you can see the pixels clearly from the other end, emitting an equal amount of light even when the cable is making a loop. Putting one on your phone flashlight you can make a flexible long light for tight spaces.

    "Toxic selenium compounds
    The most toxic compound of selenium following inhalation is hydrogen selenide. Other toxic compounds are selenium dioxide, sodium selenite and selenium sulfide. Sodium selenite is the most toxic compound on oral ingestion.
    Selenium sulfide has been linked with the occurrence of liver and lung tumors in mice and rats following oral exposure, and is a Group B2 carcinogen as per EPA classification. Elemental selenium has low toxicity following oral administration."

    If you have to touch it off the object then you are moving to make sure each object you see is at the same distance. If we move to view each separate object at the same distance we would see them all proportionally too. What would work and looks super weird is if you get a really big telephoto mirrored lens and try and get as far away from all objects you want to view then all things look proportional and it's like everything is on one plane even though they might be miles further back
