Manu and the Evolution of Sight

Paleontologists suggest an unexpected scenario for the evolution of the eye (how eyesight evolved) in creatures. According to this, the human eye lens mechanism evolved from a rudimentary light sensor in a jellyfish. This evolution began during the post-Cambrian era. In fact, an explosion of species occurred during the post-Cambrian period some 400 million years ago. The maturing of the organs of sight could happen during this explosion.  A flat photosensitive cell found in early organisms evolved through different stages. Initially, it was a pit hole. Then it became a pinhole. Finally, it took the shape of a lens structure. Indeed, the evolution of the eye is unique. Nature reused one group of proteins and toolkits 50-100 times over. Clearly, nature attempted several times to arrive at a decent prototype of the complex human eye.  Vedic literature refers to steps in evolution through the idea of Manus. Interestingly, the name of one of these Manus refers to “eyesight.” Besides, the period of
