summary Simultaneity is everywhere. Our sensual perception is simultaneous in many ways. Not only do we see, hear, smell and feel simultaneously, we see and hear with two ears and two eyes at the same time and we feel with an infinite number of receptors throughout the whole body. Even with one single sense we perceive different things simultaneously. We listen to people talking while at the same time we listen to the traffic. At the same time we carefully watch the street while we also look at the traffic signs. While everyday life is full of diverse simultaneity, Computer Aided Design Animations usually are not. Dependant on difficulties with distortions and eye movement in perspective projections we got used to planar perspective projections that demand the viewer to look exclusively at the center. We also know that no viewer follows this rule so we usually limit the view angle to reduce distortion as far as possible. In general we get to see an angle of about sixty degrees which is far less than the one hundred and eighty degrees of only one of our eyes.
