The Art of Misdirection

I found this video to illustrate a really interesting concept.  Unfortunately Blogger won't allow me to embed it, so click here to watch.

The video is called The Art of Misdirection.  The presenter illustrated how complicated it is for the mind to focus on two things at once, and how by necessity it can only focus on one, no matter how hard one tries.

The concept is highly applicable in many facets of our life.  In many respects, I find it highly applicable to the themes discussed on this blog.  Be sure to check it out.  You'll probably never look at someone's watch the same again.  A few questions to explore:

  • What does our government do to cause distraction?  How many big pieces of legislation are passed while the country is largely distracted?
  • What do churches to do cause distraction?  Anything at all?
  • What do individuals do, to remain in a state of distraction?  What are we avoiding, by not focusing on pressing issues?  
  • Is it possible to spend a whole lifetime distracted, and miss the whole point of being here?  
Would love to hear any insights in the comments, if you have any.
