Does the natural eye respond to a "near" environment?

    Hey, Otis. Finish your initial post by demonstrating how studies
    performed on MONKEYS can be considered relevant to HUMANS. Factoring
    in, of course, how behavioral differences between monkeys and humans
    to be discarded as a variable. Monkeys do not likely stare at a TV
    screen or computer screen for hours on end, do they? They vary their
    accommodation more regularly than humans, don't they? That might
    make a difference in all this, might it not? If not, TELL US WHY.
    do NOT, as you did before, simply tell me to do the research myself.
    Explain it thoroughly.

    Without such explanation, it's just a study on monkeys. Big frickin'



    Dear BD,

    Subject: The primate rhesus (dynamic) eye responds the same way as
    the primate homo-sapien (dynamic) eye does.

    When you respect the "responsiveness" of the eye to a
    negative change in its AVERAGE visual environment, then
    you recognize that both species behave the same way.

    Here is the analysis of the primate-human eye.

    At age 9 average, the refractive state of Eskimos is:

    Mean = +1.3 Diopters, Standard Deviation = 1.7 Diopters

    At age 17 (after 8 years in school)

    Mean = -0.93 Diopters, S.D. (Sigma) = 1.97 diopters.

    Z = (Xc - Xt) / Sqrt [Sigma(c) ^2 / N(c) + Sigma(t) ^2 / N(t)]

    Z = [ 1.3 - (-0.93)] / Sqrt[ 1.7 ^2 / 218 + 1.97 ^2 / 194 ]

    Z = 12.2

    The value of "Z" determines the significant of the
    result for the dynamic behavior of the fundamental
    primate-human eye.

    1.64 is significant

    2.33 is highly significant

    3.9 is virtually certain

    The "Z" value is 12.2

    The natural primate-Rhesus and primate-human behave in the
    same way.

    Why would you believe that they would not?

    says who. are you offering this posting as proof? OK, show us.
    what?? leeping a little aren't you? do you believe what you are
    writing below proves that humans and moneys respond the same? OK, show
    err-- what?? so because you cite a study that shows Eskimos get myopic
    was they get older you believe that that proves that the way monkey
    eyes and human eyes is the same?

    are all humans the same as Eskimos? are Asians who become quite myopic
    the same as Europeans? what about American Indians where some tribes
    have high astigmatism? So all primates are the same?

    Well at least you've proved that YOUR brain is the same as a rhesus
    brain. but that doesn't mean that all the rest of ours are.

    Leptokurtic. Get it, Otis? Leptokurtic.
    Now stop trying to blind me with your science.
