Homunculus

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

About twofelines

What to say? I love my family and friends. I also love kids, cats, and books. Oh, and potato chips and Cheez-its. I am a retired teacher who still loves to be in the classroom, so now I am a substitute teacher.
