    Best answer: Our vision is the result of a chemical reaction in the receptor cells in the back of the eyes that convert light into electrical impulses that travel through the nervous system to the brain. That chemical reaction is not instantaneous, it takes a little time.
    That's why items moving quickly appear blurred or completely unseen - the light is not hitting the receptor long enough for the chemical reaction to occur, and then for the receptor to "reset". That delay in resetting means the receptors keeps the same image for a fraction of a second.

    An interesting side note: dogs eyes use different receptors that respond much quicker than human receptors, so they are able to see moving objects more clearly than we can. That's why dogs did not watch TV's - they did not see them as moving pictures, they saw the line by line action of the tv screen drawing the image.

  • Can you grow bananas in the Puget sound lowlands?

    Best answer: No. There is a reason why certain plants grow only in certain areas. Bananas grow best in the Tropics, where it is warm and humid. Puget Sound is moderate, but too chilly.

    Best answer: Right now scientists are worrying about something called the "Fermi Paradox", which basically states that "If life-bearing planets are common in the galaxy, then where are all of the civilizations, why haven't they contacted us yet?"

    Some possible answers to this is that:

    (1) life is not as common as we assume, and we live in an unusually fertile solar system.
    (2) life is common throughout the galaxy, but civilizations aren't.
    (3) we're among the earliest civilizations ever born in the universe, and that the rest of the civilizations haven't had a chance to develop yet.
