Change Blindness

I’m really fascinated by the limitations, and the amazing potential, of human consciousness. This is an interesting video on how humans often see continuity where there is none. We seem to be hardwired to disregard change! No wonder impermanence disturbs us. Maybe there’s nothing really “wrong” with our longing for permanence in a world of change.

And…a poem:

(The earth shakes) by Steve Sanfield

The earth shakes
just enough
to remind us.
