How is it different? In real life, each eye gets a slightly offset view of the real world. In 3D TV, each eye gets a slightly
offset view of a scene. If what you suggest is true, we would get headaches from watching 2D movies, because that is far more
different from the way we see the real world than a 3D movie is.
