No Vision Contact Lenses – Vision: A Computational Investigation into the Human Representation and Processing of Visual Information – lentes
- (contact lens) contact: a thin curved glass or plastic lens designed to fit over the cornea in order to correct vision or to deliver medication
- (Contact lens) A small plastic disc containing an optical correction that is worn directly on the cornea as a substitute for eyeglasses.
- (Contact lens) Small, thin removable plastic lens worn directly on the front of the eyeballs, usually used instead of ordinary eyeglasses for correction or protection of vision.
- (contact lens) A thin lens, made of flexible or rigid plastic, that is placed directly on to the eye to correct vision, used as an alternative to spectacles, or, if coloured, to change one's eye color cosmetically
- the perceptual experience of seeing; "the runners emerged from the trees into his clear vision"; "he had a visual sensation of intense light"
- a vivid mental image; "he had a vision of his own death"
- sight: the ability to see; the visual faculty
- imagination: the formation of a mental image of something that is not perceived as real and is not present to the senses; "popular imagination created a world of demons"; "imagination reveals what the world could be"

Vision: A Computational Investigation into the Human Representation and Processing of Visual Information
David Marr’s posthumously published Vision (1982) influenced a generation of brain and cognitive scientists, inspiring many to enter the field. In Vision, Marr describes a general framework for understanding visual perception and touches on broader questions about how the brain and its functions can be studied and understood. Researchers from a range of brain and cognitive sciences have long valued Marr’s creativity, intellectual power, and ability to integrate insights and data from neuroscience, psychology, and computation. This MIT Press edition makes Marr’s influential work available to a new generation of students and scientists. In Marr’s framework, the process of vision constructs a set of representations, starting from a description of the input image and culminating with a description of three-dimensional objects in the surrounding environment. A central theme, and one that has had far-reaching influence in both neuroscience and cognitive science, is the notion of different levels of analysis–in Marr’s framework, the computational level, the algorithmic level, and the hardware implementation level. Now, thirty years later, the main problems that occupied Marr remain fundamental open problems in the study of perception. Vision provides inspiration for the continuing efforts to integrate knowledge from cognition and computation to understand vision and the brain.
As the children were in the Bible class, adults received glasses at no charge. I realized everyday throughout this trip that I often forget about the importance of clear vision. In America, glasses and contact lenses are easily accessible, but many old men and women in Ejutla de Crespo live each day in a blur. Each recipient was extremely grateful for these small but very significant gifts.
I See You
Well, I’ve accepted the fact that I can no longer wear contact lenses. The good news is that I passed the driving test at the DMV which I had to take since I did not pass the vision test. Yaaaaay, my license was renewed. I may not know if it’s a tree or a person, but I’ll go around it 🙂

Ordo Virtutum (70 mins) is the oldest surviving European music-drama, and the greatest musical work by the visionary mystic, Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179). Hildegard left a treasury of writings and music expressing the passionate intensity of her mystical experiences. Her profound knowledge seemed to come directly from a source of wisdom deeper than learning and tradition, finding its expression through the symbolism of medieval Christendom. She tells us that the spirit and the world are not separate but intertwined, and that spirituality and worldliness do not have to be separate either. Although she lived almost her entire life as a cloistered nun, she was deeply involved with the world on many levels – observing, writing, preaching and organising a community. Through her many writings, she tells us that help is always at hand, both from the world we know with our senses, and from the world we discover through our hearts and intuition.
