This is a mental image of a scene created by the brain through the process of combining two images received from both eyes. The finger sausage is the silliest yet easiest demonstration of this stereo-vision which brings into play perception and reality. My vision and this little Vienna gem, make what I perceive a more convincing objective reality. It also wiggles. Which, like most existential inquiries, makes us a little uncomfy.
