The discovery of slowness

Picture yourself reading this text. It cannot be taken for granted that, while looking at the screen, you perceive an orderly picture composed of clear lines. If you move your point of sight by as little as half a line, many of your visual sensors that previously sensed ‘black’ will now sense ‘white’, and vice versa. Nevertheless, you continue perceiving the same words as you did before. (2005)
