I'm not at all sure I agree with this. _Maybe_ there's a different
"relationship" but I don't think it's "gone". Are our brains that
limited ? I doubt it.

For me though, some digital viewing is like listening to a violin
played without vibrato...

And I have noticed / said here I could always continue Steenbeck
editing in my head when away from it but not so Final Cut Pro. But I
hesitate to jump to a conclusion just based on a notion of black
period and memory...

And I do think Dorsky is on to something with his "threshold of
solidity" at 18 fps projection. (Interestingly I heard him rail a bit
at a 16mm projector that used 3 bladed shutter (35/16 combo Prevost).
Same didn't bother me too much.
