Gestalt Perception

  • David C. Evans


Congratulations, your meme has penetrated a brain. It survived the attentional bottleneck. Now it needs to be interpreted as you intended; otherwise, we will not be able to decide its value to us. This is the perceptual bottleneck. We must interpret your carefully-arranged pixels to be that precise thing with that precise function that you intended, be it a download button, a play button, or even a dinosaur. If we do not, our attention will move on to something else.
