"human eyes function the same way that camera lenses do, and that you make an image of a thing every time you look at it."

Cameras make a visible image of something. Eyes don't.

When I see something with my eyes, they transfer into my mind data that I use to create a visible image.

I'd think they do. Surely in principle someone could see the image of whatever you're looking at reflected off the retina from the inside of your eye. It's only not visible in the sense that nobody's inside your eyeball and the image is probably very dim.

Your eyes make audible images, then? You navigate by following particular songs as your pupils turn left and right in their sockets?
