These building blocks are used by the brain so as to filter out “noise” that occurs naturally on the retina.

For a selection of woodland images, the researchers showed that the distributions of light and dark patches have just the same kinds of statistical behaviours as a theoretical model of a two-dimensional magnet near its critical temperature.
Trees are intermingled in a forest constituting One.
