Gerald, your comment was probably meant to be denigrating, but it is close to the truth. When you look in the mirror, chances are you recognize your face instead of a shape with all those bumps we know as facial features. You do this because you have a cognitive model about the physics of the situation. Apparently most animals are thought to not recognize themselves in such a reflection, and it is assumed that they don't have the cognitive ability to do so. I've not heard any one say they are deluded. It's just the way the mind works. The point is that the world is a Rorschach test. As adults, we rarely think of it that way because all the perceptual learning we have undergone hides it from us. Martin, and probably you, are strongly committed to the lens flare model and your interpretation of the image is based on only that model. That keeps it simple for you, but I've learned that another cognitive model that you obviously don't have, also fits the data and is worthy of consideration. William Listen to 'Strange Days...
