Ptolemy's Optics, double-vision, and the technological afterimage.

Ptolemy's investigation of sight used several materials in comparison to earlier theorists in the Greek optical tradition, who almost exclusively relied on geometrical charts to articulate and explain vision. Ptolemy's optical illusions, diplopia, and refraction were all useful in terms of vision that had not previously unexamined, including binocular vision, diplopia, and refraction. These devices did more than make new phenomena apparent; they also set the conditions for what these phenomena looked like, to the extent that their features merged with the instrument's visual behavior, which was otherwise unobservable. This essay, in general, discusses how the technologies of investigation can help pattern patterns of thought and naturalize certain physical claims, whether for the phenomena that they explicitly cite or for those who are indirectly involved with their particular use cases.
