Don’t Trust Your Brain!

Watch the entire video above.  Watched it yet?  Okay, you can proceed.

What’s occuring in that video is called “Change Blindness”, something I’ve talked about before.  This video is an excellent example of one of the major problems with our brain: we can’t process changes when we are concentrating on something else.  Wired has an excellent piece on how this relates (or rather, how this is the entire basis for) Magicians.  An interview with Teller of the amazing Penn and Teller makes it a fantastic read.
