I was refering to a pixel, not a photon.
According to the commentary, the following are the necessary
conditions for sense consciousness to arise:
- Eye sensitivity (eye has to work, not blind)
- Visible object
In other words, photons (light) are necessary for eye consciousness,
but they are different from visible object.

Understand what you mean. That makes sense and I can basically agree with
it. However, I will maintain that light is still technically the visible
object. I think the commentary is a little wrong.
The forms that light bounces off and become perceivable thereby, would be
analogous to a mountain side that reflects sounds as an echo. I'm not sure
anyone would claim that a mountain side is an "audible object." (To some extent
both forms would be supporting factors.)
The sun is primarily the "visible object" that we experience. Even fires we
may burn or light bulbs we might electrify are derivitives that were primarily
fueled by the electro-magnetic energy of the sun. I.E., it took solar energy
to grow the trees, to elevate water whereby dams and generators could produce
electricity, to support the dinosaurs that who's oil we now convert into
When a light bulb is "burning," the visible object is the light emmiting from
the filiment. The walls, chairs, tables, etc. are not "themselves" visible.
They only echo light into shapes/colors whereby we interpret what those
shapes and colors mean.
