We have seen that sight and hearing are categorically different.
These faculties are hosted in their own separate vessels/organs.
Sight sees the 'whole'. It relates to the reality. Where is reality from? Is it deductive? Proven? No, it is inherent in the soul that He gave us.
So the principle of sight, that 'no proof is needed' is inherent. This is the essence of the faculty. Later these faculties come into their respective organs... they project and define the outside environment... and the faculty does not start at the level of organs. The faculties are inherent to the soul.
Sight fundamentally relates to the essence of a thing. When it comes into the level of the 'eye' it relates specifically to the level of form/gashmi.
This is where the mehus/reality of the existence of the thing gets grasped.
