This article compares external real objects (images, video) with the internal world of their semantic representation. An algorithm is proposed for semantic learning and the recognition of visual patterns. A definition is given of the concept of “intelligent optics.” The world is not everything that can be (not Infinitum, but Indeterminatum). The advance of science both toward the infinitely small and the infinitely large requires “intelligent optics” and new metaphysical postulates. G. W. Leibniz
