"My eyes are all black? Weird! Anyway, back to the experiment."
Describing how someone is doing something like what Tedd is doing is weird. I figured its like trying to give instructions on raising your own eyebrows, or flaring your nostrils, or whatever physical thing a person can just sort of do under ideal circumstances.
Which, unfortunately, resulted in Tedd talking about having new muscles in their eyes.
Now, to be fair, there are eye muscles, but anyone who's interested in real world eye anatomy can look into that on their own. For now, I'm going to stop talking about eyes, and the muscles thereof.
Except I'm not, because it just occurred to me to mention that there's another reason to use the muscles metaphor: To imply necessary effort, potential for strengthening, and, of course, potential for overdoing it, and the need for rest.
