Louie Schwartzberg: Hidden miracles of the natural world (Video)

info-pictogram1 We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. To bring this invisible world to light, filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg bends the boundaries of time and space with high-speed cameras, time lapses and microscopes. At TED2014, he shares highlights from his latest project, a 3D film titled “Mysteries of the Unseen World,” which slows down, speeds up, and magnifies the astonishing wonders of nature.

The eye…can distinguish among seven million colors. It has automatic focusing and handles an astounding 1.5 million messages — simultaneously.8 Evolution focuses on mutations and changes from and within existing organisms. Yet evolution alone does not fully explain the initial source of the eye or the brain — the start of living organisms from nonliving matter.

The eyes blink on an average of 17 times per minute, 14,280 times per day and 5.2 million times a year. Did you know that the eye is the fastest muscle in the body? A blink usually lasts 100 to 150 milliseconds and it’s possible to blink five times in a second. The eye’s lens is quicker than any camera’s.

Our eyes have 576+ megapixels (IMAGE)

Because Moon’s light is weaker than Sun’s one, human eyes can only see it as a white arch, but if a photo is taken with a long exposure, the lunar rainbow will demonstrate its full beauty.
