Our mission is the study of human perception.
Perception is the most transparent of all human faculties.
Perception is effortless. It just happens.
acts of thinking, remembering, speaking, and reasoning,
often require some effort and planning. Large individual
differences in abilities are found for the other faculties, but
not for perception.
People become famous for being great thinkers,
but there are no great perceivers in history. Because of the ease and
automaticity of perception, its dazzling complexity is often overlooked.
It is only when attempting to explain how perception happens that the
incredible difficulty of the feat becomes apparent.
