In my insomnia ridden night (it is 3:13 am for me), I was just thinking how weird it is that I have spend most of my life looking through a veil. Granted, this veil makes things clearer, but it is still a veil -- I have not consistantly used my own eyes since 6th grade, and that is somewhat of a disturbing thought. Without my glasses/contacts, I cannot see clearly for more than about a foot, inside that, I am fine. To what extent has vision correction altered my sense of reality? Who is to say that what my vision has been "corrected" to is correct at all? Perhaps evolutionarily I was supposed to see relatively poorly? I am a pretty intelligent guy, but if I had been born a million years ago, would I have made it? This sort of **** makes me toss and turn (though it is better than thinking about female-related drama). It has gotten to the point where I take out my contacts every night and I feel like Darth Vader in his death scene: "I just want to look at you once with my own eyes..." and so forth. Does this sort of thing ever bother anyone else, or have I made you all think that I am even more nutty than you originally assumed?
