Eye-tracking technology is particularly fascinating. It is the most precise way to observe someone’s looks, that is, their eye movement. It’s the way to know what they are looking at, which can provide a window into how they think. Turns out that what we look at first gives some indication of our worldview.
For example, in an aquarium scene, the western eye will spot the big fish first. The Eastern eye will see the coral first. And this holds up metaphorically. Western culture is definitely more interested in the Big Fish than the bigger culture.
If I had my life to do over again. I think I might want to be a scientist so I could work out a study that helps us understand each other through our eyes, through our looks.
