Divided Attention

Filed under: Uncategorized — m759 @ 11:54 AM

The previous post alluded to the phrase "undivided attention."

An example of divided  attention —

The "Orphan Black" scene (at right above) is from a post, "Art's Space,"
of Saturday, July 15, 2017.  The themes of the Orphan Black series —
in the context of Silicon Valley, not of Orphan Black — were discussed
in the Los Angeles Review of Books  on Monday, July 17, 2017. Other
Silicon Valley themes appear in the recent film "The Circle" (at left above).

Another phrase for divided  attention is "bulk apperception."

From a post of March 16, 2017

"Bulk apperception" is defined in the Westworld script 
as "basically, overall intelligence."  The phrase is apparently
unique to Westworld.

These two words do, however, nearly  occur together
in at least one book — Andrew Feffer's The Chicago
Pragmatists and American Progressivism

how deep the darkness is around us."

     after her "bulk apperception" has been upgraded
     to the maximum.
