Residue

over 4 years ago

The difference between the scene on the South African veldt and the reproduced photographic snapshot which reflects it, is great; but far greater still is the difference between the picture and the view gained by the simple method of turning it upside-down. In the latter case, vision scarcely exists, and in a perfect instance of this nature, the residue would resemble a throbbing ache or a tingling feeling, rather than fully developed sight. We seem, therefore, to be face to face here with the _matter_ of vision, minus its subtle developments. If this be so, we have come to the parting of the ways where the sense of sight separates itself from, or unites with, its fellow senses.
