I posted earlier about the “all of a sudden” syndrome that we so often fall victim to, wherein the phenomenon of “change blindness” often hides important details from our attention. Sometimes this is due to our attention being directed elsewhere, and sometimes it’s because the change occurs in such small, incremental degrees that we fail to notice. (See post for more).
The following are some entertaining videos that illustrate this very point with frightening clarity.
See if you can pass.
