Attention, etc...

I tend to go along with Eric Schwartz's (NYU) view (at least for
vision) that attention is is controlled by crude-but-quick pattern
recognition -- we have a very limited area of visual acuity and
limited concentrated processing power and must use this for two
opposite needs: attending to detail and monitoring as much of visual
space as possible -- so that we don't get eaten while engaged in reading.

Attention is the trick that allows us to have a continuous, whole percept of
a world viewed through small, discontinuous windows.
