To me eyes is the most beautiful part of the human body, because the eyes manifest the connection between the body and the soul, between the matter and the spirit.
There is a proverb saying that the eye is the mirror of the soul, alternatively that to understand what the person is like it is enough to look into his or her eyes. The eye tells us not only about the character of a person, but can reflect the physical state of the whole body. Some doctors use the eye for diagnostics. This method, which was used in olden times, is still used by a few physicians under the name “irridodiagnostics”. In some way, the eye is something like database of the human being.
I have found two interesting scientific facts on the human eyes.
1. Russian sientist and famous eye surgeon Ernest Muldashev has done a comparative study on all eye shapes of the human races and published a book“«Whom we are originated from»where he comes to an interesting conclusion that the “average” human eye is that of a Nepalese. Later Muldashev develops a far-fetched theory on the origin of mankind which seem a bit absurd to me, but I really like his eye comparative analysis.
2. The recents results of the test of the University of Texas Southwestern show that men first look into the eyes a of woman, and then at her body – just the opposit of what the common belief is. What does it give to a man explained the researches from the Univesity of Örebro in Sweden: the eyes inform a lot of the character of the person. The more consolidated the iris lines (from the pupil outwards) are, the more emathy and openness the person posesses.
Some more intresting facts on eyes:
– Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing.
– the muscles that move the eye are the strongest in the body
– our eyes are composed of more than 2 million working parts
– color blind people do see color but only certain colors such as red, green and some blues, also color blindness is more common in males
For me personally the most fascinating fact about the human eyes is that they can physically prove the enlightenment of a person – the eyes of a self-realized person have a very special and obvious for everyone glow. More on it here.
