1: Why Can’t We See?

On this introductory episode of Learning How to See, Brian, Jacqui, and Richard talk about two biases that set the stage for all the others:

  1. Confirmation Bias: the human brain welcomes information that confirms what it already thinks and resists information that disturbs or contradicts what it already thinks.
  2. Complexity Bias: the human brain prefers a simple lie to a complex truth.
