Has this ever happened to you?
You go to look for something.
You are absolutely sure of where it is.
It isn’t there.
You look a number of different places.
You don’t find it.
Sometime later you go back to the first place, and there it is!!!
Years ago my daughter and I came up with an explanation: There are little men assigned to keep each item in place. If they are on a coffee break or just goofing off, the item isn’t there. When they come back on duty, there it is.
Homunculus: Latin for little human
Homunculus argument: “little man inside the brain” explains human vision
