Is this Walk-on-able? 2
Does the glass floor structure light in such a way as to enable a human to visually perceive stand-on-ability?
Charles wondered, at one point, whether my exploding box example was just some philosophical exotica, like imagining a wizard, but as I said earlier, the point is completely pedestrian. The basic point can be transferred to plenty of other examples.
I guess it's unfortunate that the EPists have been too busy to test one of the fundamental assumptions of Gibson's theory, namely, whether the composition and layout of surfaces constitute affordances, or the TSRM assumption that anchoring properties structure light.
