Hello, How do you explain the difference between this two sentences: Я (не) могу видеть его. Я (не) могу увидеть его. The difference seems quite subtle to me (unless I'm wrong): In sentence 1, they seem to be saying "I am not able 'to be seeing' him" (which we'd never say in English), whereas in sentence 2, they're saying "I cannot 'spot' him" (can't go from not seeing him to seeing him). So, in other words, it's really about a state vs. achievement. Am I way off? I'd appreciate any input.
