Blind Film Critic Tommy Edison Answers a Question About How He Understands the Concept of Vision

Tommy Edison aka The Blind Film Critic attempted to describe his concept of vision in answer to a question posed to him online.

Vision is an incredible thing. Like I have no idea how it works. The things that you guys are able to do blows my mind. And the things you’re not able to do too. Like, you can’t see in the dark. You know, and your eyes have to adjust to it and stuff. …One of the things that blows my mind is depth perception. Like you know how far away things are. …Like there’s a crowded room. A room full of people. And across the room you see one of your friends
and you know that you can just walk right through that crowd and find them. And just keep your eye on them and you get right to them.
