Abstract

The two stages of visual perception according to the models of visual search, the preattentional and the attentional, are presented. The first stage is related to the left cerebral hemisphere, while the second to the left one. The phenomenon of illusory conjunction of features during the object‐integration in the macroscopic world is described. It is suggested that the illusory conjunction is similar to the quantum entanglement of microscopic particles. The imagining of microscopic particles, like electron, is explained by the theory of re‐entrant, namely, as activation of primary visual cortical areas by the higher neural system. It is suggested that both macroscopic object‐integration and the microscopic collapse of the wave function are an exchange of the cerebral hemisphere, which create the ontological model of the perceived phenomenon.
