Not being able to read numbers off a wrist watch while your body registers potential mortal danger points first to the fact that the mind is selective as to what is actually an important task.

It seems to me that the researcher can only conclude the rate of experience of the freefaller could be tested by this wrist-watch attention if he assumes that all every perception during the freefall was of equal importance to the mind. Is there any basis for that assumption?
