THE ART OF DESCRYING DISTANCE

A response to a critique of a paper, both of which are published in this journal issue, is presented by one of the authors of the original paper (Distance Estimation with Night Vision Goggles: A Little Feedback Goes a Long Way). This author suspects that many of the objections raised in the critique emerge from a specific theoretical stance: a general claim that observers cannot estimate distances accurately because distance itself cannot be seen. The author maintains that the commentator makes a few suggestions by which one preliminary experiment might be extended to a series of experiments, but that those suggestions fail to address primary issues of training.
