Learning is the process of creating filters for what we see ... so that we can react more efficiently when presented with similar information in the future.
We modify our reaction speed with anticipation of what to look for.

In other words:
"Eyes don't tell people what they see... People tell eyes what to look for."
Lawrence MacDonald, optometrist, 1960s

Research is catching up... see below.

Sometimes parents make the best observers of their own children...
Interesting case study to that point, where parent-observation facilitated a life-saving diagnosis in an infant.
