A Theory of Sight, or How We See and What We See (Classic Reprint)
The form of apprehension accorded to the human mind is strictly limited. In the possession of what we consider practised powers of thought, we are apt to fancy that the mind is equal to any effort, and can embrace everything: but it is not so. It would, to begin with, be in vain that two facts should claim the attention at a same instant. We cannot listen to two readers, or follow up two subjects at one time: only one idea at any one moment can be the subject of apprehension. This seems so evident a truism that we fail to remark in our limitation the distinctive character of a finite intellect.
