John: No.  The brain constructs 3D models by relating sensory info
from multiple modes.  The view from both eyes is the obvious
example, but vision is also correlated with somatosensory
inputs from all parts of the body.
Ferenc: All I am saying that when we share our mental imagery then we use 2D 
representations, whether verbal or graphic. Even when we create pictures in 
perspective (seemingly 3D) in paper or on buildings, we use a flat surface, 
including our 3D television, etc.
Of course, the informnatio n that we collect comes from various agles, real or 
generated synthetically, just like in holography. This does not man that you 
store real things "in depths" without dificulty. Look at all the big automated 
storehouses, they use a surface for storing objects, they would not pub objects 
beind each other to make access awkward.
Nevertheless we alway say that we examine th underlying problems, the issues 
behind the surface, etc. indicating we cannot imagine another arrangment but 
gong further ahead and knocking on the walls.
