“The Brain with David Eagleman“
1/. Our visual experience of Reality is vast:
Equivalent information rate of Thousands of Gigabits per Second
2/. The rate we can learn completely new information is tiny:
No more than a few Tens of Bits per Second
A ratio of a hundred million to one!
- We can however, recognise familiar information at around Ten Megabits per Second.
Our rich experience of Now seems millions of times more than we can possibly sense in the present moment.
So our “Now” must be almost entirely a construct from our remembered past, with just a little information from what we sense in this moment.
