On figure one of the blind spot experiment when the black dot fell into my blind spot it was replaced by white space The reason behind this I believe is because my eyes are receiving overwhelming evidence that whatever is in my blind spot is probably white space because the surrounding area is all white However in a case such as figure two something entirely different occurred The difference was that when the black dot fell into my blind spot in figure two the space was filled not by white space but a continuation of the gray bar since according to the surrounding area there was a gray bar running vertically down the page Due to the backwards design of the eye in part because of evolution there is an area on the retina where all optic nerves leave the eye and thus no receptor cells are found there When any light enters the eye and falls on this optic disk then no information is registered and logically there should be a spot of nothingness in our visions Obviously this is not the case because our eyes fill in that area with what it believes to be correct The information about the area surrounding the blind spot give our minds something to work off of and to determine what might possibly be in the blind spot What was most interesting about this whole experiment was the implication of the fact that although we have already seen the black dot on the left side when it falls into our blind spot it disappears The implication is that our visual perception is not based on memory but on solid biological stimulus If we already know that a black dot exists on paper where our blind spot is then why dont we see a black spot even when it is in our blind spot The answer I believe is because our visual perception and our memory are separate
