Sometimes to clear my head from reading gossip and doing "work" I check out science blog, to keep abreast of very important science stuff.

Here is what I read today:

"Scientists at University College London have found the link between what we expect to see, and what our brain tells us we actually saw. The study reveals that the context surrounding what we see is all important -- sometimes overriding the evidence gathered by our eyes and even causing us to imagine things which aren't really there."

Hurrah! This proves what I have suspected for a while: my brain doesn't really acknowledge what is going on in the real world, but rather shows me what I think I will see. Oh the power. I think Ween will walk in the door and take me for a margarita! I will update you on that.
