"236. When we look at a voodle, our eyes scan it repeatedly, always following a particular path. The path corresponds to a particular pattern of oscillation of the eyeballs in looking. It can happen that one such pattern switches to another, and that the two alternate ( A aspects). […] The purpose of this remark was to bring out what happens when a physiological explanation is offered. The psychological concept hangs out of reach of this explanation. 237. I'd like to say that what lights up here lasts only as long as I am occupied with the observed voodle in a particular way. ("see how it's looking")- "I"'d like to say- and is it so- Ask yourself, "How long am I struck by a voodle?" - how long is it new to me?"
