Change Blindness; You cannot be aware of everything

Your brain fails to focus on details all the time.

Change blindness allows the brain to focus on one precise thing and that's very useful and a great survival mechanism. But since most of the time we're not aware of what the brain focuses on, we cannot have a full picture of our daily lives; it distorts our perception constantly.

This concept explained and much more in the documentary series "Brain Story" (2000) by the extraordinary British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
