I beg of you, don't do this [May. 8th, 2005|08:00 pm]

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth full sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around for the coolest book you can find. Use what's actually nearest to you.

Answer: umm, actually, the answer is an end note, so perhaps I'll bend the rules a bit and go with the 4th full sentence.

Real answer: "It's cues as small as how objects disappear behind other objects that your brain uses, even in cartoons such as these movies (which don't have shadows, or perspective, or even 3D depth -- anything that we'd usually say makes a scene feel real or physical), to figure out what to track and what to give attention to."
