What realities do you construct?


n the 1940s the psychologists Fritz Heider and Mary-Ann Simmel produced a brief animated film portraying a small triangle, a small circle, and a large triangle that moved around and into a large rectangle. The film was nothing more than these swirling geometric shapes, yet everyone who viewed it "saw" a social drama unfold, complete with intentions, plans, and an emotional subtext. This is simply the human brain doing what it does best - constructing a "reality" out of whatever sensory data it receives.
