Andrew Glennerster; the model in our brain is broken

If you try to pick coordinates in some perceptual space for each of the objects in the experiment then you get tangled up in just the same way that you do with the Penrose staircase: you cannot say whether one object is in front of or behind another one. The solution is to give up trying to assign coordinates to each of the objects.

Interesting interview with Andrew Glennerster about his work on the way we perceive the world as we move about.
