There are blind spots in everybody's thinking. Their effect can be explained with the aid of an experiment: shut your left eye, focus on the cross in our picture with your right eye and gradually alter the distance between you and the illustration:
As soon as you have reached the correct distance, the square will disappear; the experiment also works, if you close your right eye and focus on the square with your left eye while moving: now the cross disappears.
This partial blindness is always there, even if it normally goes unnoticed. You don't see that you can't see!
Although this experiment was restricted to visual perception, similar phenomena also exist in other areas in which information or knowledge are processed. Here the qualitative blind spots of Passive Disinformation are of special significance.
