  1. Hi Diane,

    I’ts a very good test ! our philosopher Pascal said too that “les yeux sont le miroir de l’âme”/the eyes are the mirror of the seele. I translate your article here for my reader–testez-vous-pour-modifier-votre-cecite–_C1DBFA17-ED8E-43C9-9941-A7B9EE2407CC

    then, they don’t have only one function to see in front of our eyes but to see inside the seele ! what do you think about ?!
