The first of these experiments (tachistoscopic) is concerned with the number and relative clearness of the processes which go on at the same time. The second (displacement) is concerned with the conditions of the subjective displacement of one of two objectively simultaneous stimuli with reference to the other. Its problem is the essential psychological problem involved in the astronomer's error in transit observations by the eye-and-ear method, for the personal equation arising in these observations is more a matter of the reciprocal relations among the processes which are together in consciousness at the moment of observation than it is of mere reaction time. It is primarily more a matter of relative clearness, as controlled probably through interference of one with another, than it is of the more or less temperamental facility of converting ideas into action. The psychological question at the heart of the observation-error, called the personal equation, is this, --What are the conditions which hinder such a division of attention among the parts of the complex operation of coSrdinating sense-stimulations, that the processes which start simultaneously may proceed to equal clearness at the same time, and so be perceived as simultaneous?
