Vision as a Metaphor

The Relationship Between Eyesight and Consciousness


  • Why are our eyes called the windows to our souls?
  • Why do we speak of the way that we "see" the world?
  • Why do we say, "I see", in order to communicate that we understand?
  • What is the relationship between our vision, our eyesight, and our way of Being?

Multidimensional Sight

Eyesight is not just a physical process involving acuity. It is a multidimensional function affecting and affected by our emotional and mental state of Being, and linked to our personalities. That is, each type of vision impairment correlates with specific personality types. All nearsighted people have something in common in their personalities, and all farsighted people share a particular character trait, and all those with astigmatism are working with a similar issue in their lives.
