Attention 2



Not everything is happening.
Everything that is happening is happening.
Everything that is not happening is not happening.
Attention happens.
What is happening can be attended.
What is not happening can be attended.
Attention can be more or less active.
Attention can be more or less passive.
Attention can make things happen.
What is the distinction between attention and action?
Do they lie on the same continuum?
Are they the same thing?
Does attention point us or connect us
to what is happening?  To what isn't?
