    an imperfect approximation of the universe as a whole or:
    The Optical X of Ibn al-Haytham
    We take as our starting point the optic chiasma, that X that marks the spot in the human brain. Images passing along the optic nerves cross over/under each other at this point—or so we imagine. And this leads us also to try and imagine the flipped flow image crossing X of the 11th century physicist Ibn al-Haytham. Darkness makes beauty appear, we have read that he wrote, for the stars only appear in darkness. Oh Ibn al-Haytham, how much darkness is necessary?
