and a different pattern within it's own pattern recognition.

images that you read as a single 3D text - which is why perspective
I agree that my retina obtains two two-dimensional images. I do not see
them however. I experience a 3D world that is constructed by my brain
and it happens unconsciously. I cannot influence this, I cannot actually
even experience 2D images. If I see a picture for example, my brain
still constructs some 3D world that then I experience. Hence, I do not

and trompe l'oeil can fool our perception. Our tactile sense would
