The visual cortex in your brain is not a light detector and the image

Photoshop can paint a smooth image therefore computers can never be
intelligent or conscious. Of course, I see the light at last, its all so

True, and the reason for that is you don't understand what you're talking
about, thus there is little chance I would know what you mean when you
obviously do not.
