The more you know the less you see!

[Added June 2005]
When an adult sees a cat, in fact he doesn’t see it:he just thinks “big deal, it’s only a cat, why I should pay attention?”.
But what was the color of the eyes, the color of the fur, etc…If you ask him
later, he doesn’t remember because he has not paid attention in the first place.
Childs instead remember every detail of the cat.

But also the adult can remember a cat like a child . He has only to increase the attention level with some trick. For example giving the cat names of other
animals or objects. “What a lovely onion with wiskers!”
All this has been confirmed by an experiment.
