Lateral Inhibition primarily is understood as the retinal bipolar contrast enhancement in early vision-to fit visually-driven behavior to a Gaussian physical environment. When it has been found that any motion anticipation is already accomplished to a large extent by these neuronal circuits in the retina, the time dimension becomes an integral aspect of the spatial discrimination. The performed hyperpolarization transforms environmental Gauss distributed information to become time and space discrete allowing geometrical prediction according to time, to reach and hit goals or to avoid collision. Apparently by changing attention, alternate modes in four-dimensional bindings are invoked to orientate and to direct precise decisions in motor activity. Though the output of the autonomous self-referenced system again is Gaussian. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
