How it Works

Focus on the second hand of a watch or clock as it makes one complete revolution. Blink your eyes or snap your fingers every five seconds. After one complete revolution of the second hand, concentrate on the sweep hand as it makes another complete revolution. This time, blink your eyes or snap your fingers every ten seconds. After this second complete revolution of the sweep hand, concentrate on the second hand as it makes a third complete revolution. This time, alternate blinking your eyes and snapping your fingers at five-second intervals.
