Seeing is life. Seeing is transfonning luminous colยญ We wish to extend our academic and theoretical ored stimulations and shapes into amental represenยญ knowledge and also to complete and exchange our tation, structured in space and in time. But seeing is technical and professional experience to prepare also opening onto the world that surrounds us: it is corrective means for the future. thus a means for communicating and learning. Numerous questions have yet to be answered, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, a philosopher worth such as: quoting during the bicentennial of the French Revoยญ lution of which he was an instigator, stated, "of all โ{128}ข Will it one day be possible to defer or stop the the senses, vision is that wh ich can be the least aging of the accommodative apparatus? readily separated from judgments of the mind.
