Blind spot

The area of the RETINA where the OPTIC NERVE leaves the eye. This area is insensitive to light and the eye is therefore ‘blind’ at that point.

Also used now to refer to an area of someone’s (otherwise rational) beliefs which is impervious to change through OBJECTIVE information or rational argument.
