Time for the jellybean illusion! You don’t actually need a jellybean, just some type of chewable candy, preferably with different colors & flavors. M&M’s: NOT be a good choice, gold bears: fine.

J.J. #Gibson on non-visual #perception, #proprioception, and the importance of #movement for #selfperception: “The point (...) is that information about the #self is multiple and that all kinds are picked up concurrently.” #SummerReading
