This is totally incorrect

Although this is often stated to be true, this simply doesn't make sense - EVFs are so limited that they can't even show you a true to life picture i.e. the same as your eye sees. With that limitation, how can you possibly say that an EVF shows you what the sensor is recording (which IS actually close to what your eye sees)?

The view in an EVF does not look anything like the image that is stored to memory and that you finally print.

Actually the exact opposite is true. The EVF shows you the electronic digital image directly off the sensor which is then saved to the card. The OVF shows you close to the real world image before it even reaches the sensor. Certainly you can see that as it is common sense. What you say doesn't make sense.
