An American study has made this interesting claim –
Our eyes are constantly getting more and more details of the scenes that unfold and it is not an easy task for the brain to analyze them.
On the one hand there are constant changes in front of our eyes due to light and other elements, on the other hand there are constant changes in our vision due to the blink of an eye, the movement of the eyes and the body.
To get an idea of this, place a phone in front of your eyes and record live video while walking and watching.
The result will give you an idea of how our brain somehow copes with the experience of each of our eyes.
You can also see this in the video below in which the white circle indicates the movements of the eyes while the matte part indicates the internal functions of vision with each movement.
So the brain uses a unique mechanism for this which also explains the stability of our vision.
This mechanism has been revealed in a new study according to which our brain automatically stabilizes our eyesight and this is a shocking method.
In fact, everything we see is on average 15 seconds earlier, so the brain connects all the parts together so that we can feel that the vision is working in a stable environment.
‘Living in the past’ also means that for some reason most of us are not able to focus on the changes that are taking place in our environment over time.
Simply put, our brain works like a time mission that sends us back in time a few seconds earlier so that everyday activities don’t become a problem for us.
On the contrary, if the brain were to update everything in real time, the world would be a place of chaos for our eyes, with constant movement of light, shadow and motion, which would be unbearable for us.
Research from the University of California, Los Angeles, has found that when our brains have to do a lot of work on the surrounding landscape, they cling to the past because it hints at the present, thus recycling details. The faster it is, the better it gets and the less work it has to do.
