Who Controls You? How Does Our Unconscious Brain Work? – Documentary

unconcious brain Who Controls You? How Does Our Unconscious Brain Work?   Documentary
Documentary called “Out of Control” from BBC who is testing the limits of conscious alertness. It turns out that we can pay attention to between two or three things at a time, in a world that throws thousands at us every second. The illusion that we’ve got everything covered is a brilliant trick from our unconscious brain that operates something like the dummy steering wheel you put on the back of a car seat to amuse children, to keep them quiet while the real driving is going on up front. And while our conscious minds might not be quite as powerless as a toddler strapped into a booster seat, they do a lot less than we might imagine. Knowing that we are not in control most of the time, I must say that I find that fact a little disturbing and reassuring at the same time. After all, who wants to pay attention to thousands of images every second?
