We no longer have regular topic challenge events, but ocasional one-off challenges happen from time to time.
With the latest eye question I noticed the selection of alien visual system ideas we’ve had thus far, and I added a vision to a few that I recalled.
I’d like to further muse over and discuss just how different a visual sense could be, challenging every component in the architecture and looking into more novel ways in which such a sense could be implemented.
Note to that end I rever to vision rather than “eye” because Hal Clement writes of aliens with a more novel implementation.
Just asking that is too broad. So it occured to me to bring it up as a topic challenge, and then summarize the results on a meta post.
