    I always wondered after reading about Raster scan displays in computer graphics subject and wondered if I truly understood that (since it was difficult to digest that a line is projected across the screen row by row 60 (or [refresh rate] value) times in one second). This is the true elaboration of that textual materiel.

    Nice. Most people think 'LED TV's mean that the LEDs are what's providing the colour. That's why OLED screens are much better. And why 'LED TVs' are actually LCD TVs, just with a different bulb, and Samsung's fake 'QLED' TVs are actually 'QLCD' TVs.

    If your TV is lying to you, so is reality. Even when you’re looking at the “real world”, your retinas are only receiving one still image after the other.

    It's a bit more complicated than that. Eyes don't capture images frame by frame, but the photoreceptors output an average at any time, of the light they've received in the last tens of milliseconds (more for rods than cones). Nerve cells in the retina convert these to nerve impulses, firing more or less often depending on the signal level, and even performing very basic edge detection before sending the pulses to the brain. So you're in practice perceiving a temporal smudge of the world with certain important-looking features enhanced. Then the brain does weird things like making you blind to the blind spot, and imperceptibly pausing your vision when your eyes move.

    The focusing on that camera before the macro lens was about the focal distance of my eyes without glasses. I’m glad technology can be as bad as my eyes.

    In Europa the refresh rate was only 25 fps (PAL/SECAM). C64 games was slower as with 30 fps. Cinema films with 24fps was playback with 25fps, so the film ends earlyer and the sound was a pitch higher. Now days TV can play back 24, 25 and 30 fps.
