A blind man saw men as trees walking. What did this signify?
Beholding is not merely seeing. It is seeing with an intensity and insight that goes beyond a mere physical processing of light entering the eye. When Jesus healed a blind man, he asked him, "Do you see anything? He could see, but he was confused. Jesus touched his eyes again; then he saw clearly; he had not only sight, but insight, to make sense of what he saw Mark It was not enough to see.
The Country of the Blind, by H. G. Wells
He had to in-see This is how the Greek puts it. Seeing without insight is seeing without understanding. It is seeing without discerning significance, and that is not really seeing at all. The Australian outback is not merciful to those who venture into it blind of such insight. The most important kind of seeing is the seeing of spiritual realities. So even if you're excited about the eclipse and think one brief glimpse at the sun before it completely hides behind the moon is worth it -- it's not.
There's no internal trigger that is going to let you know that you've looked at the sun for too long. Any amount of looking at it is too long. Even the smallest amount of exposure can cause blurry vision or temporary blindness.
The problem is, you won't know whether it's temporary. In the one with protanopia, it actually looks quite similar to van Gogh, who I also like quite a bit. I know this is a really old post, but I just discovered that my son has Tritanopia and I really wanted to know how he sees the world. I'm so glad this post was here to come back to in order to understand him better. I just realized that this doesn't give me any representation of how colorblind people see the world as I am colorblind.
