Our sharp eye-focus is limited
to an area not much bigger
than four full moons.

We ‘see’ a lot more,
un-sharp, …

and our brain looks for movement
and break-lines in that vast canvas,
to continuously move
our attention
to were the action is.

The human voice,
is also always focussed upon
by the physical brain;
a burnt in habit
to give attention,
and if possible,
fellow human beings

Talk-radio and television,
have become an eternal source of distraction.
It takes a lot more energy
to concentrate within their field of noise.

The constant battering by the human voice,
might lead to a chronic attention deficit
might lead to underdeveloped communication skills
might lead to impoliteness and disrespect for fellow creatures
might lead to an immunity against empathy and compassion.
