Crosshairs assist the purpose of achieving the aim; they function as a rule characterized to make time levelling, they also show as a static figure, emitted in the absence of a signal, and that serves as a control to test the quality of the transmission. This duality of functions is inevitably based on the field that allocates the observer and the subject, either what one wants to achieve as what one wants to analyze or attest.
The evaluations are related according to our body, but this principle moves and assumes different relations in space, in angles and perspectives, so our model determines and guides the consequences, but the measures are not always measured by the palms.
