I think you are right,
but I anyway have to tell you that it is not to 100% obvious that this is the case that you say if you really go deep into investigating this question.
Because, many people believe that the act of us observing the world around us is what makes the world come into some creative existance in the now.
So there is some feedback loop, a dependency between us and the object that we observe.
So if you don't participate in a the seeing process of the now then the vision system collapses, according to that theory.
This also explains why fear is a bad thing for myopia.
For instance Gred Braden said something like (please, excuse me if I didn't get all words right here, but anyway):
"Everywhere we look, everywhere that consciousness explores with the expectation that something will be there, that exploration, that act of looking observation is the act that creates something for us to see, so we actually are building this universe as we go".
I know also that light is actually a mystery, because light as a particle comes into existance only if someone observes it, otherwise the light is spread out all over the place (no location, wave or more like an infinite cloud maybe).
So that question is definitely not easy to answer if you go down into sub atomic particles, and in a way that is what you do when you observe a point right.
What shall we do.
I use to think that what I look at comes into existance only when I look at it, else it is something else unknow mystery, so as I look at the point, then the point has been transfered to something that is participatory and observable. What actually happened in the tranformation is very hard to tell, did the mind affect the point that you looked at, I mean something as to initiate the transfer from the light as a cloud to something more like a particle that can reach the retina, it is not obvious that the mind just observes, the mind could very well also affect the point in a way that makes it observable to us.
Maybe there is some signal processing feedback loop involved there in the transformation that enable us to see a point clearly despite that the conditions of the transfer wasn't that good, maybe it was neccessary for the mind to affect the point to get a feedback loop back that caused some better receiver conditions.
Who knows ?
