Ever played Peek-a-boo with your cat?
In case you don’t know what peek-a-boo or peekaboo is, wikipedia will help to shed some light, below, in italics:
Peekaboo (also spelled peek-a-boo) is a form of play primarily played with an infant. To play, one player hides their face, pops back into the view of the other, and says Peekaboo!, sometimes followed by I see you! There are many variations: for example, where trees are involved, “Hiding behind that tree!” is sometimes added. Another variation involves saying “Where’s the baby?” while the face is covered and “There’s the baby!” when uncovering the face.
Peekaboo uses the fundamental structure of all good jokes—surprise, balanced with expectation.
Peekaboo is thought by developmental psychologists to demonstrate an infant’s inability to understand object permanence. Object permanence is an important stage of cognitive development for infants. In early sensorimotor stages, the infant is completely unable to comprehend object permanence. Psychologist Jean Piaget conducted experiments with infants which led him to conclude that this awareness was typically achieved at eight to nine months of age. Infants before this age are too young to understand object permanence. A lack of object permanence can lead to A-not-B errors, where children reach for a thing at a place where it should not be.
Quote of the Week, 04/07/2018, below:
Stephen Covey once commented, “There are three constants in life…change, choice, and principles.”
Do you agree with Stephen Covey? Or are you still standing by Benjamin Franklin’s or Daniel Defoe’s or Christopher Bullock’s…
Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.— Benjamin Franklin, in a letter to Jean-Baptiste Leroy, 1789
However, Franklin’s letter is not the origin of the phrase, which appeared earlier in Daniel Defoe’s The Political History of the Devil.
Things as certain as death and taxes, can be more firmly believ’d.
And in The Cobbler of Preston by Christopher Bullock (1716)
“‘Tis impossible to be sure of any thing but Death and Taxes,
Now, few words on Stephen Covey, excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below:
