    The Secret of Seeing The lights are off, visibility zero, you here a noise, you get up and fall over your table; now imagine that experience your whole life by being blind. There is more then what meets the eye when we refer to sight. The eye can be surgically trained to see but the mind can not identify the object if it has never been seen. When blind patients feel an object they know what it is because that is how the brain has been trained to identify objects. Those who are deprived of sight ...

    No warm-blooded human being can honestly say that he or she doesn't like the sight of a nice ol' butt. I find myself hypnotized by the sight of a beauty just as much as the next person. Often times I'm left with my jaw on the floor, unable to verbalize the sheer magnificence that I'm looking at. Not anymore. Until recently, I always thought that my speechlessness was a product of a hypnotic trance caused by a lush posterior, but then the heavens parted, and a divine ray of light shown down on me...

  • King Lear Clear Vision In King Lear
    1,393 words
    In Shakespeare's classic tragedy, King Lear, the issue of sight and its relevance to clear vision is a recurring theme. Shakespeare's principal means of portraying this theme is through the characters of Lear and Gloucester. Although Lear can physically see, he is blind in the sense that he lacks insight, understanding, and direction. In contrast, Gloucester becomes physically blind but gains the type of vision that Lear lacks. It is evident from these two characters that clear vision is not der...
  • Blindness In Oedipus The King
    722 words
    Blindness plays a two-fold part in Sophocles' tragedy "Oedipus the King." First, Sophocles presents blindness as a physical disability affecting the auger Teiresias, and later Oedipus; but later, blindness comes to mean an inability to see the evil in one's actions and the consequences that ensue. The irony in this lies in the fact that Oedipus, while gifted with sight, is blind to himself, in contrast to Teiresias, blind physically, but able to see the evil to which Oedipus has fallen prey to. ...

    It has always been a mystery to me how people can believe in love at first sight. How can you know you love someone just by seeing them for the first time?
