I don’t believe our eyes, much less, our minds freeze moments. The camera lens has introduced this as a commonplace notion that now seems to be widely accepted. 

Dmitry Samarov, in his profile of Noah Vaughn. I don’t really buy the hackneyed argument this is embedded in (viz. photography has, for the worse, supplanted visual ideas long in development), but it is fascinating to think about thought-in-time, and the diachronic perception eclipsed by synchronic, “frozen,” images.
