I’m reading Steven Johnson’s Mind Wide Open, and just completed Chapter 3, “Your Attention Please.” In it, he discusses the many facets of attention, and I found myself having trouble keeping them all squared away. It made me wonder why there wasn’t a diagram of some sort to help express the relation between these various elements.
So I drew a diagram, if only to help me keep it together.
After drawing the diagram, I realized why there might not have been one in the book. Making a clear sketch wasn’t easy. Oh well.
