How much can we get done within a second – we do not know. Pay attention to your movements.
How long does it take you to raise your hand, sit down on a chair, or scratch your nose?
Routine perception of motions ceases to catch your attention once you’ve mastered their mechanism.
Only newborn infants are still able to devote all their attention to the process of moving in space of an infinitely long second of learning.
