Spot on Damian and GR Hutchings… We can only be observant on one thing at a time… This is one of the reasons why multitasking does not work… Also, our peripheral vision is not very effective, where our focus is primarily in the center and only about 10% of what see comes from light sources. The rest are simply constructs in our brain. Modern technologies highly distract from that area. Add to it the auditory and it gets worse.
