The Magic Of Consciousness
An interesting set of videos from the Mind Science Foundation.

[link to www.mindscience.org]

Among other videos, Penn and Teller talk about consciousness and the art of visual illusion.

I've been reading a lot lately on how we can trick our minds into seeing or believing something. Stumbled across this and thought it might be worth a share.

Re: The Magic Of Consciousness
I know some people will scoff at magicians but I think this is very well laid out.

The first video sort of reminds me of how media works.

I wanted a better understanding of how and why people/authority manipulate others.
This isn't a doom video, in fact there is a lot of humour.

Re: The Magic Of Consciousness
I found it interesting how Teller talks about "One of the best way to conceal secret, is to make the intention so overpowering that people really follow that instead of looking at the slight of hand."

I can think of many CT that talk about that sort of illusion. I think we are facing a few of those "distractions" right now, and forgetting to think what the other hand is doing.
