Paper Abstract

The analysis of the prenatal engineering of the human brain and more specifically that of the human eye may encourage new interpretations and better understanding of cortical processors and lead to better ideas about how to build optical sensors. What human vision at its first processing stages realizes is an adaptive transformation of physical parameters from an outer 4D-spatiotemporal into an inner psychological world or its reciprocal projection and construction of an illusionary (inner or outer) world. The description of some of the most remarkable steps in the development of the human eye before birth, very critical for the optical functionalities in vision, will illustrate the new interpretations.
