One of the most important abilities developed by living organisms on Earth is adaptation to the light that comes from the nearest star in our galaxy – the Sun. This ability is called light perception. Interestingly, it defines not only the perception of a source of light, but the perception of all surrounding reality! It determines colors, shapes, orientation in space and in time.
