- Light comes from above
- You have no visual buffer; if you can't see things side by side, you can't easily compare them
- Subitizing and counting

- Follow the physics of attention – attention blindness lasts about 0.5s after an attenion event.
- Nothing is irrelevant
- Possibilities are just as visible as colour
