Thanks for stating something that everybody and anybody who thinks
about or works with world modeling must know and understand.    (03)

The answer for every animal from flies and frogs up to humans
is to integrate images from all (2 or more) eyes to form
a 3D representation at the earliest stage of perception.    (05)

Instead of sending questions to Ontolog Forum, I recommend
some work on studying the literature about neural processing
and computational geometry.    (06)
