  • Incarnations Of Burned Children And Binocular Vision

    One of the things that I enjoyed most was our readings. Incarnations of Burned Children by David Foster Wallace, Lobster Night by Russell Banks, and Binocular Vision by Edith Pearlman are three short stories that impacted me the most from these stories. From Incarnations of Burned Children and Binocular Vision I learned that a story does not have to be long at all for it to be meaningful. The use of one single event can create a lot of meaning in a story. The use of sentence length can also shape a story greatly. One of the big things that I leaned from these two short stories was that you must only keep the details that are absolutely essential and necessary in order for the story to succeed. From Lobster Night I took a lot away about when and where you want to place readers in a story. You don’t always have to start from the beginning, you can place the readers right into the action. I think a lot of my writing prior to the class gave readers way too much background…

  • Optic Neuropathy Reflection

    Many diverse emotions and physical feelings were involved during my contrived experience. Before simulating monocular vision due to Arteritic Anterior Ischemic Optic Neuropathy (NAAION), I did not anticipate the increased level of difficulty that certain normal activities of daily living (ADLs) and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) would have on my day. My experience consisted of an eye-patch covering up my left eye for 12 hours. Some of the activities I found to be the more…

  • Summary Of Evan Thompson's Waking Dreaming

    Indeed, even the competing stimuli are switched rapidly between the two eyes in humans, binocular rivalry still produced its normal slow alternation of perceptions. The discovered persistence of gradually dynamical rivalrous perceptions when stimuli are switched powerfully suggests that binocular rivalry occurs as a consequence of alternate stimulus representations compete within the visual pathway. Binocular rivalry thus affords an opportunity to study how the visual system decides what people…

  • Myopic Perspective In Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club

    The author of Fight Club, Chuck Palahniuk, once stated, “The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close up” (Chuck, n.d.). His statement highlights a condition I call a myopic perspective.
