what I think isn’t interesting about the
00:14
term misdirection is it it’s misnomer
00:16
most people think it means look at this
00:18
hand while I do something with this room
00:20
but actually what I want to do is direct
00:22
and control your attention at least know
00:24
where it is because if I send your
00:26
attention off into the darkness it can
00:28
come around just like throwing a
00:29
boomerang it hit me when I don’t want it
00:31
to so I like to think of it as managing
00:33
attention because control is a hard word
00:36
but I manage the attention kind of like
00:38
water flow and I see where it goes and
00:40
then I have to move with that your
00:51
attentional spotlight is only the size
00:52
of your thumbnail one one-thousandth of
00:54
your field of view that means if I can
00:57
see where your eye motion is I can now
00:59
navigate around that and do certain
01:01
things plus because you have to make
01:03
choices between all your senses your
01:05
vision your hearing all those are coming
01:07
into one spot if I can tap into your
01:10
priority system I can now start hacking
01:12
to reprioritize certain things so that
01:15
other things will go under the radar
01:17
that’s a very interesting way to take
01:18
advantage of attention try to follow
01:21
along if I put the cap on the pen it
01:23
looks like it goes away yet right now
01:25
it’s behind my elbow I put it back on
01:29
the pan it goes away but
01:30
it’s behind my ear now if you did this
01:33
slowly you can see when I put the cap on
01:36
the pan yeah it seems like the cap went
01:38
away now the cap is behind here it’s a
01:44
fun game isn’t it
