The sighted watchmaker

Let me begin this chapter as you probably begin your day, by sitting down to breakfast. Here you are, seated on a chair, before a table that is covered with a cloth. On the cloth, more or less under your nose, is placed a bowl, and to the right of the bowl, a spoon. A little further away, a jug contains milk, and a cardboard box contains your favourite cereal. You pick up the box to pour some cereal into a bowl. The action is about to commence.
