Re: Attention. What is it? How do you know that you have enough?

The ADD mind needs to make sense of it all.
It's not a matter of being seen to be 'clever' - it's an absolute need to resolve information.
Why? Because we're driven mad by information which makes no sense.
Can all information be made to make sense ? Yes.
However - across the board - social conventions will be identified as mindlessly flawed.
'If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.' -- Einstein.
The entire basis to social and medical epidemiology is to list ALL of the MANY MANY ridiculous things that human beings do to themselves which result in disease. Why would a species choose to knowingly kill itself, becomes the question ?
ADHD understood - simple information sensitivity.
Attention geared towards information handling.
Other calls on attention fail to captivate the ADD mind.
