Philosophy Wire: Seeing farther: The (nonexistent) limitations of vision and their meaning.


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-12-24]: ESO's HAWK-I infrared instrument on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Chile has been used to peer deeper into the heart of Orion Nebula than ever before. [1] There are no limits as to how far and deep we can see. And this is why seeing is totally useless after all. See a nebula from far away. See closer. Get closer. And closer… What do you see? Everything is made up of… nothing. See the greatest picture. With the eyes of your soul. Only then will you understand.
