Some human being count by `talking" the numbers, others by `seeing" them.(Source: Feynman"s story (in "Curious Character"?)). You have the right to attempt itand also watch. Counting "1, 2, 3, ...", are you saying "one, 2,three", or are you picturing "1", "2", "3"? I say them, butsometimes exercise picturing. Feynmale reports that if you say them,you deserve to read at the same time, however might have trouble talking. If youphoto them, you can talk, yet reading is difficult. Perhaps Ishould dig up the Feynguy story and flesh this out as a page? Itwould certainly additionally be nice to have a crossexamine on the principle.Notes:Doables:History: 2003-Feb-03 Fixed 2 web links. Added this History. mid 1990"s Created.
