The symbolic meaning of "seeing" is "understanding," which is obvious enough that it has become part of common language (think about it; you might see what we mean). So when the Bible talks about seeing, the reference is to recognizing and understanding the truth intellectually.

4405. The reason why the sense of sight corresponds to the affection for being intelligent and wise is that the sight of the body corresponds in every way to the sight of its spirit, and so to the understanding. For there are two kinds of light, the first being that of the world coming from the sun, the second that of heaven coming from the Lord. The light of the world does not hold any intelligence at all within it, whereas the light of heaven does hold intelligence within it. Consequently in the measure that the things with man which belong to the light of the world receive light from those that belong to the light of heaven, and so to the extent that the one set of things corresponds to the other, he is intelligent and wise.
