Eyes as windows to the soul, explained (For fun): Your “Truth” Vs. “A Manufactured Projection."

Its an age-old idiom.  “The eyes are the windows to the soul.”

I was recently told by someone I deeply respect, not only for his scientific and medical background, but also for his understanding of energy work and the human body, spirit and mind. He passively asked me if I knew of the “Left eye, Right eye Theory”? I stared at him blankly.

Apparently it is believed in some scientific circles, and in other non-scientific ones too, that as the images are received in the optic chasm, they are also reflective of the division. Below in the excerpt from DeWitt, it further explains how information is received, separated and sent to opposite sides of the brain. I will paraphrase what I was told:

The LEFT eye is the reflection of a soul’s or person’s authentic self. Their truth. This being because it is the side that receives the information that is linear, scientific, logical, and pragmatic.

The RIGHT eye is the reflection of the soul’s or person’s “manufactured projection” or “self-created” self. This in turn, being from the emotional, creative and artistic side of the brain it can present something less authentic, more controlled and contrived.

THIS IS NOT EMPIRICAL INFORMATION. I am not trying to “sell” a theorem or convince anyone of anything. I merely find it fascinating. The way I find astrology, neuroscience, religions and myths, human history, and pscyhology equally interesting.

It’s fun to think about. So I took pictures of a friend and some of my family including myself. It’s quite eye-catching to see and differentiate the difference. My source used Bill Cosby, Miley Cyrus, and other famous pictures as examples by covering the right or left side.

Take a look, decide for yourself. If nothing else, it’s a fun fact to ponder:

Note: If you take a “Selfie” to play along, it is the OPPOSITE. This is because the camera on your phone flips the image so what looks like your right, is your left, and vice versa. If the picture is taken by somebody ELSE, it’s true to form.

Looks projected, lines and creases
straining to smile.
Sad, but open. Soft and less forced.
 <---Left (selfie) TRUTH
   Right (selfie) PROJECTED--->

This is me, January 2015. My life was falling apart and I was clinging with white-knuckle to be “in control.” They actually look like TWO different pictures to me.

Warm, kind, open and soft.
A little forced, detached and
fearing a bit.

<---Left TRUTH
This is my six year old. I notice this is fascinating. Hers are opposite of most. This makes me laugh because she has a little “deviant” or “curiously dark.” side that she hides. I help her and nurture her because she will soon see that hiding is unnecessary, and she is perfect being ALL parts of herself.

His projected self is intensely
serious, and edgy. 
His truth is calm, happy,
 kind and endearing. Even his lashes
are softer and present. (same pic)

<--- Left TRUTH
    Right PROJECTION--->

My husband, after a rough wknd. We had “family” dinner as we planned in spite of our separation.
His is quite interesting, and makes me happy. It is also exactly how I’ve always seen him.

Like mine above, she is straining a smile.
Lines and creases, but she seems
energetic and in control.
Truth is soft, open and learning.
There is aacceptance.
<---Left TRUTH
     Right PROJECTION--->

My friend of twenty years. Life has been hard lately, divorce, ill father, new routine, but she is happy now. She has always, however been very SURE of who she is.

Truth is intense, has an
Projection is SO similar to Truth,
only difference I see is a buffer on
intensity and empathy with kindess.

 <---Left (selfie) TRUTH
 Right (selfie) PROJECTION--->
Another friend of twenty years. She is an old soul, mother-nature, soothing, very enlightened woman.
                                                        <----Left (selfie) TRUTH
Right (selfie) Projection--->               Me. Today. Separated for two weeks. Sad and processing all the changes, but also at my creative peak. Everything that was my life has changed, so too, have the people in it. So here I am. 

I had my mother look at the last pictures of me. She thinks my truth looks bright, strong, calm and sad but present. My Projection, however,  looks stonewalled, angular, nervous, anxious and cold. 

Some background on the subject (found on Wiki, and from as well as a famed neurologist.):

Below is an excerpt from Dr. David A. DeWitt. He holds a PhD in neuroscience from Case Western Reserve University. Currently chair of the Department of Biology and Chemistry and director of the Center for Creation Studies at Liberty University, his primary research efforts have focused on the mechanisms causing cellular damage in Alzheimer’s 

NOTE: He does NOT endorse, or have anything to do with my “truth vs. projection” theory. He is cited only to clarify the optical biology, function and fascinating inner-workings of our eyes and brain. 

"Consider just one aspect of your vision: rich, full-color, moving 3D images. Did you realize that is not what your eyes pick up? Your eyes detect two separate two-dimensional images. Your brain must then recombine these flat images into one, steady-stream, 3D representation of the world.

To perform this miracle, your brain constantly compares the information streaming in from each eye and makes instant calculations to derive the right depth, distance, shape, color, and shading. This allows you to tell where one object ends and another begins, such as your friend and the tree behind him. With this perception you can confidently cross a busy street or swing a bat to hit a baseball.

Furthermore, the images that land on your retina are literally upside down, but the brain restores every last pixel to an upright position.

Consider another blessing of our brains. When we blink, does the world go dark? No, because the brain fills in the missing details. Our eyes don’t see this, but our brain lets us think we do.

How impressive is that?

The optic nerves coming from each eye meet briefly in a region called the optic chiasm. Here all the information is deliberately split into two parts of the brain. The left half of the visual field goes to the right side of the brain, while the right half goes to the left side."

In Egyptian folklore: Horus was the ancient Egyptian sky god who was usually depicted as a falcon, most likely a lanner or peregrine falcon.[10] His right eye was associated with the sun god, Ra. The eye symbol represents the marking around the eye of the falcon, including the "teardrop" marking sometimes found below the eye. The mirror image, or left eye, sometimes represented the moon and the god Djehuti (Thoth).[11]

In Christianity(according to “”: Often in Scripture, eyes indicate people’s character. Included in these uses are personality traits people possess, as well as their moral condition. As we might expect, the book of Proverbs comments frequently on the character of godly and ungodly people alike. It is the charitable eye of the generous man that indicates his liberality (Prov. 22:9).152 On the other hand, it is the miserly eye of the stingy man that describes his parsimony (Prov. 23:6).153 For the Hebrew, the eye indicates the character of the man—in this case, either his generosity or his stinginess. The humble man who is brought low is described in the book of Job as having downcast eyes (Job 22:29).154

Just for fun, take your own pic to see the truth!
