Re: “Myth of the Invisible Ships

I am not really satisfied by the writer`s explanation. The problem is that those ships were FOREIGN enough to activate the Anxiety System in our brain. And that triggers orientation reactions. So, the ships must have triggered some reactions, most of them unvoluntary, and yes, orientation reactions include turning the head and focusing attention on the foreign enough object.

On the other side i am not completely taken by the "it is so foreign it was invisible" explanation either. It smells of Paul Feyerabends studies in cultural relativism.

What we have here is a classic clash of psychology (orientation responses) with philosophy (cultural relativism)
