Could this be a reference to the third eye?
Actually it's a reference to our biggest problem and a hint towards the solution for this problem. We are in fact being shown that we have an unhealthy dichotomy going on in our perception - ie. our spiritual (non-physical) imaging of our reality.
Yet it is a little easier to visualise in a physical sense, which is how it is being explained here. We (physically) see the (physical) world through two (physical) eyes, which through the normal process that takes place in the brain; between the two retinas and our interpretation of what they have picked up; being two separated images, which are then merged into the one image we recognise.
This is healthy vision and with it we receive the clarity of physical perception we desire. But now add some disruption into this process and we might end up with double-vision, which may sound like an advantage, but can be like it would be better to have none at all.
So it is with our SPIRITUAL perception. Rather than our physical eyes, this time the two sources are our Objective and Subjective perceptions. Again, unless these are merged in the optimum manner, we end up with a spiritual double-vision according perception, and as such we receive very little spiritual light (understanding of reality) - indeed into the soul; being in turn; the fullness of being that we are.
