a fun fact
every time you dart your eyes around, not only does your brain automatically erase the data of "that smeared blur i saw for a moment", it also takes what you see when your eyes stop moving and retroactively inserts it as a memory for that moment. that's why if you look at your watch, it seems to take longer for the second hand to tick the first time
human senses are garbage
The one that blows me away is the massive mismatch between how much longer you believe you will be emotionally affected by things vs how long things typically emotionally affect you. (Affective forecasting I think its called?)
Its something I am totally aware of but still can't convince myself deep down that its true.
