True, but why doesn't the millions of odd electron interactions within the cell cancel out the effect of the straightness of the photon paths? I would think that the retina would have to be an immaculate crystalline surface rather than a lumpy community of breathing protein sacs in order to retain the integrity of the photon pattern. If the visual cortex can compensate for all of that, as well as movements of the eyeball and head, it seems like it could read through the patterns of photon interactions just as our auditory nerve hears through the acoustic collisions of charged particles as they interact and interfere.
Sorry, I don't have the time to teach physics on this list. Others may be better qaulified anyway or you could read a textbook.
