Quotes
p.65   "In our society [...] to be real, a thing must be visible, and preferably constant. We trust the eye, not the ear."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Visual Space
p.67   "Auditory space has no favored focus. It's a sphere without fixed boundaries, space made by the thing itself, not space containing the thing."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Localization Location of sound Presence Space Visual Space Auditory Space
p.68   "Auditory space has no boundaries in the visual sense [...] There is nothing in auditory space corresponding to the vanishing point in visual perspective [...] auditory space lacks the precision of visual orientation."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Presence Space Visual Space Auditory Space
p.69   "[Auditory space] can be filled with sound that has no "object," such as the eye demands."   Added by: sirfragalot
Keywords:   Localization Location of sound Visual Space Auditory Space
p.70   "pure visual space is flat, about 180 degrees, while pure acoustic space is spherical. Perspective translated into visual terms the depths of acoustic space."   Added by: sirfragalot

Paraphrases
pp.66-67   A reminder that the infant must learn to see -- reverse lateral field, achieve binocular vision, revert the upside-down world, learn a sense of depth (a child unable to move would only have a 2D world). Authors state that depth, the 'chief characteristic of visual space,' is not primarily derived from visual experience but from locomototion and kinaesthetic experience (a blind child achieves depth perception through audition and locomotion).   Added by: sirfragalot
