It is actually quite amazing when you think of it. But makes sense since the brain fills in spots for you even with images.

Came by to see if you had any thoughts on Hillary Clinton's trip to Nigeria.

Take care.

I believe that Hillary just arrived. Hopefully she will not be asked about her husband's opinions this time around!

It also gives me pause about the veracity of memory. If my brain is that good at filling in the blanks - and from this demonstration, apparently it's very good indeed - then I might remember clearly stuff that was really just filler in the whole picture.

There must be something wrong with me, I read the power of the human mind without pause. While driving, just ask me to turn right and I will turn left. My mind or bad listening skills?

Experience is never pure "sense data" as the empiricists would have it. Even the smallest thing or the simplest property is always already a concept in our mind.
