Paying attention and noticing other things happening

After watching this Buzzfeed clip it made me feel blind to what else was going on in the background. while watching the video i though it was a trick video where it says count all the red cards i noticed that all the cards were red on the back so i was counting all of them. once you’re focused on a certain object or task you begin to lose notice of everything around you, staying locked in with the one thing your mind is set on.

The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but in seeing with new eyes“- Marcel Proust.

Selling the colour changing of a cup of water


“Majestical colour changing to a boring standard cup of water, bringing a splash of gold bought it to like like a touch of gold dust in to the delicate ocean.”



Phenomenology is a methodology and philosophy that makes a study of the relationships between being human and the objects or environment around us.

Also in todays lecture we had to participate in an activity in where you had to close your eyes and open them in a silent room each for five minutes taking in everything you feel and hear inside and out.

Eyes closed – All i could here on the outside was the air conditioning in the dead silent room. i could fell a slight breeze of the cold air coming through it hitting my face ever so gently. I felt well and relaxed because of how peacefully quiet it was and i could only sense a few others in the room, not as many as there actually were.

Eyes open – Once i opened my eyes i first noticed the people around me and remembered there were a few of us in the room. when your eyes are closed you kind of shut off from the world forgetting who’s around you.

The raisin test


While holding the raisin in my mouth without chewing in to it all i could think about was the texture and how it was so boring along with the taste. the texture felt old and wrinkly. Once chewing into it there was a bit of sweet delight as the taste finally livened up. the texture then was nice and chewy like a sweet and tasted like grape, which it should do.

Imagination & Perception

The difference between the two are that imagination is any thoughts and ideas at all no matter how wild they are. whereas perception is based on how the world around you is, it’s what you’re telling it to be, pattern repetition and object search are examples of perception.
