Geocache Description:


di·ver·sion \də-ˈvər-zhən, dī-, -shən\

n.
    A maneuver that draws the attention of an opponent away from a planned point of action, especially as part of military strategy.



Several methods exist for hiding secret objects or message. Sometimes it is enough to divert the mind so that the "victim's" focus is distracted. This is something that all magicians know. Make the viewer focus on something else, so that you can do your magic in other direction. Nobody detects the obvious or at least something that should have been noticed.

A good example is the Selective Attention Test - also known as the "Gorilla test", available in YouTube and in several other sources. That test demonstrates how tricky it is to observe things on the background when you're focused on another task.

Another similar example is a test, where radiologists tried to analyse x-ray images for tumors, and didn't notice a gorilla figure there (see image on right).

Now it's your time! Can you see the trick here? What if this epilogue has been just a diversion? Or not? You decide.
Do you see it here?



The cache is a micro size container, which can be found during winter time also. You can check your coordinates on the geochecker. No spoiling logs please. Happy hunting!
