WHY DO WE SEE MACROSCOPIC THINGS LIKE WE DO AND NOT AS A LOT OF ATOMS?

Do objects as we see them really exist or are they only an illusion made by our brain because it wouldn't be pratical for us to see billions of atoms?

    Same reason why you don't see pixels in a high resolution photograph.

    Well, you obviously have never completed a puzzle before.

    ...

    let's make it simple

    you are looking at your computer screen

    and you see a complere 'picture'

    with everything flowing smoothly into everything else

    even thought the screen is actually made of variously lit pixels

    your eyes simply blend all the pixels to make a picture

    a similar thing happens with pictures in a newspaper

    look closely enough and you can see the dots

    When you get a good response,

    please consider giving a best answer.

    Human eyes can't resolve 'microscopic' , why we use a tool called a microscope for that.

    Their limit is the shortest wavelength of visible light, so we upped one better with the electron .

    Now, we can see smaller yet down to twice the size of an atom.

    I already explained that the optics of wave phenomena do not permit distinguishing items smaller that the wavelength itself.

      When you speak about cross sections in your body you are not talking about photons, as it's dark inside your organism.

    It would be completely practical to see billions of atoms, the brain, the heart. We see things that way, because our bodies make sense and are beautiful when the light bounces off us and gives us 'what you see is what you get.' It is a small piece of the spectrum, but you see, THAT is the genuine article. Refraction and resolution resolves stuff like curves, bulges and wrinkles. That about as practical as you can get.

    It's not possible to see atoms or molecules with visible light. So we see the objects, the summation of the atoms or molecules. Yes, they do exist.
