English term or phrase:Trawling
It is in a sci-fi book that talks about 7 steps-exercises that need to be followed in order to become invisible. I am giving you the context.
It says: "In order to develop the powers of unconscious vision, you must proceed now with a final exercise, that of Trawling, which is the exact opposite of Staring. Staring itself is the least productive of all visual activity, since it produces tension around the organ of sight and inevitable loss of focus. Trawling, on the other hand, increases the collection of visual data a thousandfold.
I didn't find a satisfying translation in dictionnaries about the word Trawl/trawling. And I can't seem to find an appropriate rendering. Any ideas???
Η μοναδική περιγραφή που έχει είναι αυτή και λέει και ότι είναι κάποιο είδος διαχωρισμού της εικόνας σε διακριτά μέρη, όπως μια εικόνα σε oθόνη υπολογιστή χωρίζεται σε pixel. Απο κει κι έπειτα το αναφέρει συνέχεια ως Trawling (ένα από τα βήματα-ασκήσεις...γι' αυτό ψάχνω και κάτι μονολεκτικό)
