Sight is caused by light hitting the eye (cornea, I believe), so obviously light has to be a little bit faster.

Light...You first need light to see. So it's faster than your sight. Sight is just interpretting the light that you recieve.

I think this.. light is hitting our eyes.. causing sight.. and without light, you don't really have sight do you??.. answer me and prove me wrong people..

Sight doesn't have a speed, the speed of sight is the speed at which light reflects off an object back to your eye. They're the same.

^Ok?

Uhh...light.
How the hell would sight be quicker than light?
Her friends are gazing on her,
And on her gaudy bier,
And weep!-oh! to dishonor
Dead beauty with a tear!
They loved her for her wealth-
And they hated her for her pride-
But she grew in feeble health,
And they love her-that she died.

Without light there is no sight.

That isn't even a comparable argument. Its like comparing what is heavier, a big car or raping a bitch. It just doesn't work.
Any spelling or grammatical errors written above are because of my inferior brain to yours. Good job, you won life.
#15
sight isnt a speed, thats dumb. it just reflects different colours from objects into your brain which then decodes it and puts an image in your head.

your eyesight doesnt travel thorugh the air, thats retarded.
#16
Nither because the eye dosne the eye dosent have speed, so theres no way you could form a coclusion on this, case closed


If it were the brain than thats a tottaly different story!!!

If your measuring sight against light your basically measuring wave lengths against nuerons traveling from the eyes to the left and right parts of the brain.

How ever if you read up on how the eyes work you'd see that they simply do not just take light in and send it straight to the brain, they process each and every wave length that comes into contact with the cones in yours eyes... it then goes through the process of being processed, yes in your eye, these parts kind of process the image so the brain will understand then, if not you'd just see random flashes of light and noise, a whole load of other **** goes on too, but once an image has been built up it is processed at the back of your eye and sent to the left and right parts of your brain to be processed into an image, which is what we actaully see..

So light is indeed faster that sight.

I actually had a weird thought about this a few days ago, how no human ever REALLY sees in reality. There's always that delay for the light to reach us. No one ever sees the universe as it actually is, but more so how it was at some point in the past, from a fraction of a second ago (something like the keyboard in front of you) to billions of years ago (far outer space, when we see things like the formation of stars that have most likely blown up long ago).

and to contribute to this thread, light is faster than sight, plus whatever other things the other pit monkeys have stated

I am not sure since you need light to see, so the speed of sight might be rendered meaningless. So all importance could go to the spead of light if my idea holds up. And for times when there is light, there is a lag time that occurs when a person changes what they are looking at. The eyes need to refocus on the new object so it might be hard to say exactly how fast sight is.
#30
sight doesnt go anywhere.... it just takes in input from the light that hits your eyes from the outside world.

light actually travels, so it is faster.

Well, I bet you are sorta wrong. Sight might not move but is has the capacity to receive things and amount and speed at which this reception occurs could be called "seeing speed." When you use an old single reflex lens camera you have to adjust the apeture to allow light in at various speeds. The same with the eye as it adapts to the environment, like when your pupils widen or close up, to allow the needed amount of light to enter the eye and let you see things.

what kind of stupid ****ing argument is that? your family is retarded

light

edit: that argument doesn't even make sense, your sight is based off of the light that your eye "picks up".

Heres the facts.

Your eyes have a nerve that goes from the retina to the brain.

Now...the fastest neurons in your entire body send signals that travel at a rate about 200 meter/second, while others go as slow as 10 centimeter/second.

Light travels at some 300,000,000 meters per second.


So...yeah...light kinda wins this one.

What? Nothing travels faster than light (and don't start with that "in theory..." bull****).


You can walk faster than light if you slow it down enough.
#40
So if sight were to theoretically be faster than light...
No scratch that, lets say that sight was close to as fast as light...

Then time would begin to slow down... and then time would approach space... and become the true 4th dimension... and then sight would stop becoming slower than light... and rather become larger than light.. which would cause the electrons to leave their valence field... causing Čerenkov radiation... or a visual "sonic boom"... Holy ****ake mushrooms.
