I highly doubt that he can see in the pitch black darkness, i would wager hes got more sensitive eyes that are closer to an animals vison than human, now if thats directly related to the lack of pegment in his eyes or not, remains to be seen.....

So who's given him cat pupils in the OP image? At the end of the vid the same image showed them mormal?

Has anyone ruled out some funky contact lenses?

They come in lovely patterns these days including cats eye!

Thought that was worth a mention

increased or exceptional low light vision possibly.
But not seeing in the dark.

That could be a possibility

Quite right, you cant see information thats not there, no photons, no light, no vision .)

In the video they say they block out nearly all light.

What I noticed was if he does have a reflective layer (tapetum lucidum) in the back of his eyes like cats have making his eyes glow, his daytime visual acuity should be reduced. Which is exactly what the kid is experiencing in bright sunlight, having to squint his eyes and complaining about blurry vision.

Lots of people with light colored eyes are more sensitive to sunlight than people with darker eyes.

Kind of what I was thinking. But this could be tabloid, for all I know.

I think one day we'll be able to change our genes. Some things probably can't be biologically changed. So if you want to see in the dark maybe you just need synthetic eyes or something.

Don't young children have better vision? Could it be that he was born with rare blue eyes and that somehow having blue eyes helps a person to see in low light? Or is this something else.

It could be the result of a slight difference in genes. My eyes are very sensitive to the light as well and I can see better at night than many people. However I need light to read. Many people could be like this and his genes may have slightly altered to go back or forward the next step. There may be other genes to allow some people more tolerant of heat or cold as well. I have definitely noticed something is not right. Most people where I go to church at keep the heat turned way up roasting me while most of them are still wearing jackets. Actually I'm kind of wondering about that because I was perfectly comfortable outside in short sleeves but the thermometer said it was in the 50's. It felt comfortable to me outside. I have a long history of getting sick from the heat inside very hot buildings ever since I remember. However nobody else was getting sick from the heat. Maybe I retain more of my body heat than others do when I experience cooler temperatures. Except my hands can drop down to room temperature. I've only let my hands drop down into the 30's, they turned blue when I did that. I remember one time when I felt cold, the nurse read the temperature in my mouth at 69 degrees twice. People could be evolving and a number of different gene mutations could be out there. If you're radically different than other people in your area, you'll suffer at times as well. I hope the boy has a good pair of sunglasses. I like those that block out UV A and B light. I've even worn them at night because sometimes car headlights are blindingly bright and I can see the rest of the landscape with sunglasses at times. I rarely wear them at night though.

yeah... that's misleading advertising...

The Chinese government is really into fake propaganda so it is always to be aware of that. I am not meaning they made the cat eye pic, just that they sometimes make up stories as in the whole thing, for the sake of the populace and outsiders to make the Chinese look "f*cking awesome"... and to fulfill an Ideal of National identity as well.. scientific research is very often still ruled by bullsh*t nonsensical socialist philosophies.

On the field of palaeoanthropology I know that they fund 'research' with the specific aim of coming up with the result that Homo sapiens evolved separately in China because they would rather not believe in the out of Africa hypothesis even though DNA shows that it occurred with overwhelming evidence. Because Chinese are special and could not have possibly evolved from Africans.

The experiments were not exactly robust were they.... "we threw a blanket over a stairwell and asked him to read cards"? wtf? that is not giving any quantifiable measured evidence at all! He squints in sunlight? So do f*cking most people.

And no it does not disprove natural selection or Darwinian evolution or whatever... mutations can show up at any time for no reason at all. that's the point of them. they are always occurring to provide variation in the population. What does take thousands of years is the increase of the frequency of the particular allele in a population, because it takes time for it to be selected for over generations in having given the individuals with it some kind of selective advantage.

China already genetically engineers. lots of stuff.

Why wouldn't they also do so here?

Wait till he has kids. Hybridization won't be possible. Probably will end up blind.

It's actually a common lie about the junk dna.

"junk" dna is mostly just immunities to extinct diseases, as well as "buffer" zones.

Every time your dna replicates it makes mistakes. Thus, buffer dna is placed in an effort to offset any chance those mistakes are not corrected.

Over time, the buffer zones decrease in their presence because of errors in replication. This has to do with aging as well. Eventually the buffer zones run out, and your actual dna starts to mutate and break, leading to your death.

That's what junk dna is. It's not waiting to be activated. It's simply there to try and let you live longer. In theory if you doubled the amount of junk dna, you could probably live a bit longer.

First of all S&F

And second, I don't think we can call something that happend to one child, evolution

no one can see in pitch black because your eyes aren't taking in any photons, so no electrical signal is sent into the brain, so the brain couldn't form an image for him to read.

if his eyes did glow on their own accord, it would most likely negatively effect his vision in the dark. the light from his eyes would be brighter and more focused than the light bouncing back from the page, so the information would be lost.

he might have good eyes, but no one can see in pitch black.

Hate to be the party pooper but why do we always have to jump to conclusions about aliens and paranormal?
All i see is a little guy with blue eyes.I didn't see in the video his eyes glowing,nor the kid quessing the cards.All we have is to take the word of those people that he did.
As someone mentioned before people with light colored eyes are more sensitive to sun light.

Being born with blue eyes can happen for a number of reasons.
a)Mommy wasn't very faithfull to daddy.
b)a genetic defect.

and if you want a conspiracy theory
c)Someone is experimenting with pregnant women or newborn children in China.

May i remind you of the village of the twins in Brazil,where Mengele was creating kids with blonde hair and blue eyes.
Maybe in China have their own version of Mengele.Maybe they are creating superhumans to take over the world.

Anyway he is such a sweet kid and i hate to see the media and his parents exploit him because he is born different.

Could it be, that the boys mother had an affair with a foreigner? And so they've made up this elaborate story to try and avoid embarrassment and shame on their family?

That is a strong possibility. I'm mixed race Asian myself and I can see how he could be mixed race, too. I have brown eyes but I have met other people who are half Japanese, or Korean or Chinese and white and have very exotic looking pale eyes from bright blue to hazel. It's not common but it happens. This could also be a spontaneous mutation such as the one that created blue eyes in Caucasians to begin with. From what I have read of that mutation all blue eyed people get their eye coloring from that original mutation. This little guy could be the founder of future generations of naturally blue eyed pureblood Asians.

The whole comparison to cats eyes seems contrived at this point. The slit pupils are clearly a photoshop embellishment to the story. And my mom has told me that in her Asian grandmother's village the people always thought caucasian blue eyed American soldiers could see in the dark but were half blind in the daytime. The people in this video could be subconsciously making more of this child's abilities and issues than is called for due to cultural stereotypes.

When I was a kid I could see and read well in near darkness myself, with dark brown eyes. I know blue eyed people who have great night vision and sensitivity to bright sunlight. The only thing extraordinary about this kid's blue eyes that I could gather from this video, is that they reportedly reflect light the way a cat's eyes do. But I can't say I really saw that in the video. They looked like ordinary blue eyes to me.

I personally don't think the kid is half chinese.

But I do remember when I went to Holland I met a guy, someone told him I was half Moroccan, half welsh. He was interested because I have light skin, brown hair and green eyes. This guy himself had blonde hair and white skin (dont remember his eye colour) and he told me he was half Chinese. (the more I looked at him the more I could see it, but it's cool how I didn't notice at first)

So yeah it's a possibility, you never know what a mixed person can end up looking like.

Maybe he's only half chinese, maybe the mother cheated on her husband with a blue eyed caucasian.
