We might all be familiar with images like these below:
I see this clearly "works" in a cartoon context. It makes a point. That "eyeballs" hanging outside belong to the individual and can be shown next to him and not in the floor or so. But, is there any biological basis for this? Is something like this ever possible? Probably the answer is no, as the (optic) nerve connecting the brain with the "eyeball" surely cannot be extended like that. Would the eyeball actually hold its shape?
PS: for the sensitive among the crowd (including myself), please do not post gore-like pictures to show what actually happens. If want to provide some visuals, diagrams might suffice.
