3+ 5x2 + 6=19

So, you saw 19?

Man, I'm feeling much better now...

I counted four. I got one "Of" and missed the first two. I think that's weird. The wierder thing is when I read "How many?" I said out loud, "Five" even though I counted four.

6 here..

Man.. 19 F's? ... that's pretty good

After like 100 times I got the six "F". I wonder if a non Speaking person would find the six easily.

The 1st time I read it really fast and counted 3, then went back and read it again slowly and got 6, I scrolled down and I was right, woohoo!

I picked up three the first time, then another 3 the second time. The first lot of effs had a very distinctive 'efff' sound, while the "f" in "of" has more of a "vih" sound. Ask how many Vs are in there!

Human perceptual systems tend to fill in the gaps in stimuli. In this case, we tend to skip over the "F"s simply because we know that they're there, and it's a waste to process them while reading.

Now let's carry this back out to audio. Exactly what stimuli in the musical experience are we so familiar with that our brains will process it without our even knowing it? Is it even possible for us to ever be fully conscious of everything happening in a musical event?

Sure, there's the "implied beat" that drummers use all the time -- they're not playing anything, but it's still there, groovin' along.

Just for one example.

PS Two. I suck harder than all y'all. Third one was pretty quick to find, fourth a little longer, last two were just this side of impossible. I was already looking at the E's to see if any of them were missing their base.

I'll just think of it as having superior interpolation, because I still was literate enough to read the sentence.

Yeah, I saw this some years ago, but the instructions made me read it out loud, even harder, as the f's are pronounced as v's. since then I read without subvocalizing, so they're easier to pick up, plus I saw it before...
