This is how your eyes work: First, there are rods and cones. The rods give you your soft gaze, your peripheral vision, the unfocused resting state when you see everything and distinguish nothing. If something catches your attention while in your soft gaze the cones focus, a kind of tunnel vision is perceived. Everything fades to background as you study your subject. Unconsciously, you do this all the time.

There is balance in our perception. We can keep our focus while taking in the whole. In The Dark is the harmony between detail and whole. A story, and an object at the same time.
