I disagree. The notion of one eye is useful. A group with one eye has an
advantage in a fight against a group with none.

I don't see that it's incorrect, and I think it is "designed" to help
beginners recognize life. Their first mental draft of the concept of "eye"
is probably "a point surrounded in all directions (including diagonally) by
stones of one color", which is a sufficient but not a necessary criterion.
