When I was in high school, I used to think that the act of physically seeing things was not a one way process. I didn’t so much think our eyes took things as much as they shot out imperceptible rays that gathered information and bounced back to our eyes. Kind of like sonar. And I wondered if on some microscopic level, our vision “rays” left an impact on whatever they bounced off of. Obviously, I knew it had to be imperceptible if this were true or else we would all be shooting lasers out of our eyes at each other. But I thought perhaps if the object you were looking at were sensitive enough, the impact of our vision rays could be perceived if you stared at it for a long enough period of time. So one day in my photography class, I spent 10 minutes in the darkroom staring at some blank film. Then I tried to process it and see if some little dots showed up where I was staring. They didn’t.
