If can you be invisible at anytime at will and since light can't reach your eyes, what would you see, amirite?

I guess I'm dumb, but why if I'm invisible would light not reach my retinas?

If your eyes are invisible (eyes let you see) light would go straight through them

@Nickyikky That doesn't mean that your eyes won't interpret the light

Yeah it does
Try to see when light literally passes through your eyes

@Larny2019 If your eyes are invisible (eyes let you see) light would go straight through them

That assumes a lot about why and to whom/what you are invisible.

The invisibility could be an illusion. It's not very hard to trick the brain into thinking it's seeing something other than what it's seeing (M.C. Escher, 3D chalk drawings, tanks with cameras on one side and LCD screens on the other displaying what's beyond the tank). You could be receiving light that's in front of you and bending most of it so it can't reflect off.

Bees see into the ultraviolet. Black dragonfish see into the infrared. How much of the electromagnetic spectrum does this person absorb or bend or whatever?

I think his point was that you are Actually invisible. Not just an illusion... But that is a fair point.

Though, if it is an illusion, I think you would then have to distinguish between an optical illusion or a psychological illusion.

Let's say you go with a distortion illusion, yes, you would be bending the light around you. I would guess that things would get progressively more stretched, and warped, the further angle you look away from the person/creature that you are trying to deceive. Though it could be minimal

As for a psychological illusion. I guess everything would probably just look normal to the person creating the illusion, in that case.

But they would still be there and thus able to receive the incoming light...

Darkness

@Hatchadi Darkness

But light would be reflecting off your eyes then

@404ChompyNotFound No, you don't need light for darkness.

This isn't a black hole where the gravitational pull is faster than light
This is where you can process light
Unlike a black hole, you can see darkness because of light

@Shiny244 The absence of light

The absence of light? That's a black hole

No, a black hole is an object, not the absence of light there is definitely a difference, there are rooms that can be seal off from all light sources that is not a black hole just a completely dark room.

@Larny2019 The absence of light? That's a black hole

No...The absence of light is any place without a source of light...

The depths of a cave are not a black hole yet if you do not have a light source with you you will see absolutely nothing...

@Larny2019 How can you tell that a dark room is dark

Because there is still light to know your in a room, but if there isn't light all you would know is dark or the absence of everything visible

A Black hole is the absence of light, you can't see a black hole, but you can see darkness

I don't think you can see darkness just like you can see light, you can see object because light is reflecting of off the object or surface and rebounding into your retina. When you look into a room without the lights on you can see because the little light that is coming from under the door is enough to reflect into your eyes. Black holes absorb light so that's why you can't see black holes, only the distortion of light round it

@Larny2019 This isn't a black hole where the gravitational pull is faster than light This is where you can process light...

Darkness is the absence of light...

If you go anywhere where there isn't any light reaching it, it will be dark...

@Kionix What would the universe look like without any stars?

Dark, pitch black, but you could tell that it's dark because light passes into your eyes

@Larny2019 Dark, pitch black, but you could tell that it's dark because light passes into your eyes

What light passes into your eyes? There is no light in a dark universe. So what does it look like?

It depends on how you were invisible. If light bent around you, you wouldn't be able to see anything just the static your mind makes up. If light passed through your body then you might be able to see but I can't say for sure.

Seeing is light being detected by your retinas and turned into electrical signals. If light bent around you it wouldn't get to your retinas but if it passed through you, you might still be able to sense the photons passing through but idk. If your invisibility wasn't perfect you may be able to see a little bit even if the last scenario wouldn't work but it would look like opening your eyes in a pool but the water is clear glue

Just because your light receptors are invisible, that wouldn't mean they wouldn't receive light...

That premise doesn't make sense...

@Crazymotherfuker Just because your light receptors are invisible, that wouldn't mean they wouldn't receive light... That premise...

Type " would you see if you were invisible" in google, every single website literally says that you couldn't see
