Your Brain can unscramble and fill in things that are missing
#1
There is a lot of research that shows the brain will "correct" missing or misplaced letters and words when reading. At least with highly skilled readers who have a huge store of examples in their memory.

You might not realize it, but your brain is a code-cracking machine.

For emaxlpe, it deson’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod aepapr, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer are in the rghit pcale. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit pobelrm.


I believe this also applies to visual images, wee see what isn't there or ignore what is. And example would be when someone out in the woods "sees" a deer that isn't there because a branch or something looked like antlers. Hunters suffering from "buck fever" have shot at everything from cows, bushes and rocks to tractors and other hunters. They wanted to see a trophy buck so bad their brain filled in a picture and they fired before making a positive identification. It is why hunter safety courses put importance on taking time to make a positive ID. (and also to be aware of the background in case you miss or the bullet goes through the deer)
