ARTICLE: We had thousands of years of wanting to get from A to B in the most expedient way possible. But now we can get between places incredibly efficiently without actually noticing what we are doing. There are potentially 11 million pieces of information hitting our brain every second but our brain filters out 99.9% of it.

We can regain the “sixth sense”: our innate ability to scan the landscape and anticipate what might happen next.
