Freakonomics Wilful Blindness Buddhism's one pointedness

You become a monster when you don't concentrate...


A Freakonomics podcast...



...speaks of Continuous Partial Attention, never concentrating on a single thing.

Willful Blindness by Margaret Hefferman...


 ...explains that attention is not divisible.

Buddhism has the idea of one pointedness...



So when we are discussing the angle of a mechanical cut, and at the same time you are emailing a Japanese distributor about pricing, and you say "I'm listening I'm listening..." you are deluded or lying.
