I see you; do you see me?

by Kevin T McEneaney

Humans have difficulties with eyesight,

which are defective if one compares them

to birds, fish, or even tiny insects.

These many creatures have better eyesight.

All mammal retinas are inverted,

a huge evolutionary problem.

We see the world in but two dimensions,

yet a fly has better vision than you,

lives in a multidimensional world.

Unlikely that we will ever know why….

We strive to search for rationality,

just as we pride our sacred vanity.

We demand explanation for our life.

Logic offers no answer for our life.
