In fact, in the animal kingdom, they must prove equally effective in defence and attack. We have already anticipated when this can be used to explain formation of visual images. However, for this action to proceed, a spatial image of the retina has to be acquired in our own consciousness of corporeality. Thus if receptor cells of the visual projection ﬁeld assigned to retinal points are to be matched with various points of the oculomotor projection ﬁeld along the retinal meridian (with the level of oculomotor activity depending on the distance from the centre of the retina), there is an immediate need for a ﬁxed orientation of the location of retinal points, thus achieving a solid image of the retina itself.
