But then she trained herself to see in 3D!!! By which I mean, she had an excellent team of optomitrists who helped train her to see in 3D. Rad, right? Because you have to re-train your eyes to work together, and then re-train your brain to process images together, but even though everyone said that it would just be a bit of fine-tuning to her already-functional vision (because we are functional, we cyclopes), it chaaaaaaaaaaaaanged her liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife (see: above).
Because you don’t realize how many things are affected by your vision. I can’t ride a bike in a straight line because I can’t look into the distance while moving quickly. People with monocular vision tend to perceive only details, not wholes, which is why I have trouble following convoluted plots (especially on movies, where I’m already busy wrangling the moving parts on screen). Guys, all these things I suck at, I still suck at but it’s kind of not my fault. Also, I can be fixed.
Ok and so while this might not chaaaaaaaaaaaaange your liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife (unless you also see in 2D in which case DUDE! There is hope) I think it’d still appeal to the Oliver Sacks crowd. Barry is conversational and explainy and the way the eyes and brain interact is fantastically interesting.
Nine caterpillars for the book, and then a babillion for the liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaange.
