So I stirred a hornets nest eh?

If I made any mistake, it was perhaps in misinterpreting the original 
posters description of 'perception of 3D' with 'seeing' 3D.

Of course we can 'perceive' 3D by a number of means, but to 'see' it, 
you need two eyes. If you don't believe me, look at a 3D object and 
close one eye. You still know the object has depth because you know 
from experience that it has, but you can't 'see' it.
