In your Issue of october 29, in your a scientific notes a you quote from the a scientific american a a the crystalline Lens of the Eye like the camera causes the image of an object to appear inverted upon the Retina. Psychologists have yet to explain Why we see things right Side up instead of in the inverted position Etc a m. Ganot a French scientist some years ago explained it and his explanation has been generally received among scientists. We will say that a Ray of Light coming from an object to the Eye makes a path the Eye looks Back along that path and sees the position of the object. Now the rays of Light from the top of an object make a path straight to the upper part. Hence the lower part of the Retina looks Back along the path of the Light that strikes it the top of the object is seen in its True position and the upper part of the Retina traces Back the path of the Light that strikes it to the lower part of the object from which the Light emanated and sees it in its True position so the Eye natus ally sees the object upside right and does not have to learn it from experience to reverse the image so with the right and left sides and All sides Dii etly opposite each other. I am not certain that m. Ganot was the first to explain this but think he was. The Eye however cannot really Trace the path of the Light hut it can Only feel the impinging of the Light on the Retina and judge its direction As a Blind person can judge the direction of a flying Ball which he catches in his hands by the feeling of the .
