Michelang_IO_lo interprets images.
 The algorythm uses the two images seen
 by Michelang_IO_lo as that which is
 seen by each of the two eyes.
 But Software's physics is not the
 same as the one found in human bodies,
 and Michelang_IO_lo's two eyes can
 simultaneously see totally different
 things, two different points of view
 of the same scenery, the "real" and
 the "imaginary". Anything. That can
 fit inside a JPEG image.
 And software's vision does not aim to
 visualize in the same way as the human
 eyes do.
 Michelang_IO_lo's sight is another one:
 mathematical, noisy, digital.
 Michelang_IO_lo is a software object:
 it analyzes, processes, elaborates.
 And it performs Input and Output.
 Michelang_IO_lo processes its vision,
 transofrming it into sound.
 Vision gets sampled, and transformed
 into a series of soundwaves that create
 sound by superimposion.
