I once asked a lama friend, if beings in the hell and ghost realms are so miserable, how can they ever get it together to have kids (how can anyone be born there?) and he told me that they are not like our realms.
Consider your question,
that the activity of vision as we know it, is a manifestation of the human realm,
hence, it is part of the very projection of mind which establishes the human realm as 'real' in the first place.
So, it's sort of like being in a dream, and knowing you are dreaming, and asking, "If I am dreaming, why can't I see what other people are dreaming?"
In other words, there is some level of comparison between our realm, which we experience as real, and other realms which we cannot see, and thus suspect that they are not real...meaning not real the way our realm is real.
The human realm experience is a manifestation of the accumulation of causes. So, we can only detect what those causes allow us to detect. Consider that a honey bee sees the same flower you see in all sorts of degrees of ultraviolet colors that we cannot detect. And, that practically everything you can see, a dog can smell just as vividly as you see it. A dog can even smell things that were here yesterday but not today. That is because the animal realm experience is a also a manifestation of the accumulation of causes. Yet, the dog cannot read a book, or speak in human sentences.
I have heard that some lamas are
actually able to perceive beings in other realms, but I don't know how to validate such a claim.
