The human visual system generates many dimensions of orthogonality and utilizes the output of eight orthogonal systems to generate hypersensitivity, color and depth. Each system can be regarded as a sense in itself and the outputs of all or any can be placed in apposition to give a multiply populated class of conjoint information. Each system has two kinds of independence: (1) each acts alone in the acquisition, utilization and rendition of that array of information for which its own mechanisms are suigeneris; (2) each has an independence manifested only as a consequence of having its informational output placed in apposition to the output of one or many of the other systems.
