“In the grand scheme of things we’re all pretty much blind & deaf”

Image & text from Abstruse Goose

This image pretty much says it all.

We can’t take it all in.  Not even close.

Our screen, our radar, is highly selective.

Beyond what we can see, we see what we want to see.  Likewise beyond what we can hear, we hear what we want to hear.

Add the effects of preferences, culture & context to the mix & we’re highly selective creatures with infinitely focused (aka exclusive) worldviews.

Here’s an example – before I had a critter crazy kid I never realized there were so many bugs, frogs & creepy crawlies around.  Did the bug population all of a sudden explode?  No, of course not,  it’s a simple case of my radar being influenced by my kid.
