What may be happening here is that Ron and John are thinking about
two different but closely-related processes:
a) The entirely physical flashing of the frame on the screen,
regardless of the presence or absence of an observing brain - the
"pure" objective phenomenon of stroboscopic action
b) - What is happening in the brain of a human observer of the
phenomenon. Does the brain like "monitors and tvs nip a bit off"?
It should be possible to check this by some sort of brain-scan
