This post from the New York Times caught my attention. The title is a little misleading as what the author is talking about is not disconjugate gaze, but disconjugate perception, the idea that you don’t really see anything in the same way that you do other people. So I thought since it is a little more controversial and can be a bit of a controversial topic, I would share with you my thoughts on this topic.
The idea of disconjugate perception is that we are able to see things in a different way than how we do other people. For instance, we can see someone with a huge nose and a big chin, but we are not able to see her as having a huge nose and a big chin. For this reason, psychologists say you can’t really judge people on their appearance.
One of the biggest problems with disconjugate perception is that it can be hard to tell if what you see is accurate. For instance, I see a woman with a massive nose and a big chin and I am not able to say that this is how she looks. On the other hand, I can see a big nose and a small chin, but I am not 100% sure.
It’s not just appearances that we don’t see straight. This is true in our entire body. What’s going on in our brains is also a matter. But of course, in disconjugate perception there is a much wider range of differences, including the size of the nose and chin. So we can get confused about what we see.
The reason we can’t say this is because we are not directly seeing the actual eyes. We have to go through the mirror-like barrier of our eyeballs to see what we are seeing.
For a while now, we’ve been talking about how our brains can be disconjugate, that our eyes are a reflection of our brains. But the truth is that we arent actually using our eyes to determine what we see, our eyes are just a tool used to determine what we see. So in this movie, we are actually seeing two eyes. One directly in front of us and one in the front of our own eyeball.
The problem with this movie is that it’s simply a lot of ‘eyes’. There are two eyes in this scene and only two of them are actually in our eyes. And while it’s a cool visual metaphor, it doesn’t really explain what happens in the rest of the movie. As I said, there is one eye directly in front of us and one in the front of our own eyeball.
Disconjugate has been a fun little movie, but I would really have liked to see it without the two eyes. It would have been more interesting to see what happened when the two eyes were swapped. As it is we get to see more of the movie and we get to see two eyes and no real explanation of what happens, so I don’t think the movie is really going to win any awards.
I’m not sure that disconjugate gaze is going to ever be a big thing in the future. As far as I know, the only time you can switch your eyes is when you’re under the influence of an X-ray machine, which is pretty unlikely. More likely, what you’d see to be disconjugate gaze is a result of the way the movie flashes in and out. The eye movements in the movie look a little bit weird.
To be clear, disconjugate gaze is a very rare condition that can make people squint, which is something the movie also shares in common with being under the influence of X-ray machines. But to explain why I dont think the movie is worth seeing when youve not heard of disconjugate gaze is because it definitely isn’t a plot device, and could just be a weird visual effect.
