The native Americans called it wide angle vision. Tom Brown, Jr.'s Tracker School do bush survival courses which include wide angle vision.

Quick Guide to Wide Angle Vision
Good angle on the subject. But he advises practicing it when talking with people. I find it's appropriate to focus on someone i'm talking with. It's respectful and encourages good communication. Vulnerable animals are still; they don't chatter or sing or do anything else when they are panoramic.

The Ultimate Guide to Splatter Vision/Wide Angle Vision
Another interesting video on the subject, or at least another bit of scientific information.
Central corn cells are what we use to focus and they are sensitive to colour, rod cells are more sensitive to movement.
Uses a method of focusing on one point and then spreading to the peripheries.
I feel his advice to use it when walking is not a good idea for beginners, and also feel this is only useful combined with Carlos Castañeda's ideas.

Talks about it being a super power, and paints a glamorous picture of how hunters, warriors, and ninjas use it; so is using it in predatory mode and not as vulnerable animals use it.

He advises using it during conversation... as i say above, it's appropriate to focus on someone i'm talking with. Giving my attention to a person i'm communicating with is important, otherwise it's encouraging unawareness. Going panoramic is unnatural in this situation, unless the talker is boring.

Unfortunately ReWildUniversity doesn't give any references about where they learnt their techniques. I can only imagine Tom Brown, Jr.'s Tracker School teach some rudimentary ideas about panoramic seeing
