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

Well, I have been following this line for some time. So far, no answers, though.

There is a great deal of discussion as to what "attention" is.

The following video suggests some answers:

Now the guts of this discussion is that the real business of brains is to produce movement, but movement based on the sensory input to the organism, with a view to maintaining the homeostasis (feeding and watering) of the parent organism.

The pathway involves

1) Finding a suitable target
2) Following it with one's eyes
Getting the rest of the body engaged with the right response.
