I don't think this is a fair comparison.  You are talking about
perceiving 3D from a 2D image or seeing 3D in a real 3D environment.
I would imagine the tricks to convince the eye and brain that
something is in 3D for the former is much different than the natural
way the brain has been trained through millions of years to perceive
3D in the world around us.
