16. It’s like the Coppertone logo but weirder.
In Bill Bryson’s latest book The Body, the author explains that not only are your eyes not the sole arbiter of what you see, but you never actually see the present moment. The amount of time it takes for outside visual information to hit your retinas and travel to your brain and actually be processed is about 1/5th of a second. Everything you see, including this sentence you’re skimming right now, is on a delay.
If you can’t even see things in real-time, how can you trust that you know what’s really happening?
Well, that’s another reason your brain jumps to conclusions. Your brain evolved to infer patterns before they actually even happen in the present. Sometimes, the brain goes too far and makes up the wrong message. That’s why a coat hanging on the closet door can become the Babadook.
