I always wondered how is it possible to observe same thing again and again. On a particular day if I read something interesting or watch something - it keeps appearing again and again in a different context for whole day…
Maybe  I observe things related to my mood.. for example out of hundreds of word and ideas... I observe just few. If I read same text again maybe I will observe totally different set of words and ideas... all depending on mood.
I always wondered is there a theory behind it Or is it just the case with me.  I read this and this yesterday – They indeed have a name for this :)
