Missing Image


Our eyes have evolved to give us an accurate picture of the world, and so have our brains. But, unlike our eyes, our brains don’t give us just one answer to the question and stop there. Instead, we are designed to create a sequence of pictures of the world and perpetually to revise the pictures we currently have. That’s what we do in science and art, and that’s what we do practically all the time when we are very young.
