I think it’s been said that around 43mm (as the diagonal of the ff sensor) is the focal lenght that gives the most similar field of view to human vision (not taking into account peripherical vision).

That's how it was explained earlier. But vision is not a static process. So how might focal length relate to perceptual and cognitive experience?
