Eccentric Sensation.
The sensations of the brain transferred to objects without. For example: we see a tree; this tree is a reflection of the tree on the retina transferred to the brain: but the tree seen is the tree without, not the tree in the brain. This transferred perception is called an “Eccentric Sensation.”   1
