Imperceptible 1100 Words You Need Week 40 Day 4

/ˌɪm.pəˈsep.tɪ.bļ/ (adj)

unable to be noticed or perceived due to being very slight and unrecognizable, inconsiderable, unidentifiable, nominal, subtle, infinitesimal, trifling, unnoticeable, undetectable, indistinguishable, indiscernible, invisible, inaudible, faint, negligible, indistinct

To someone in an agragrian society, such as Heraclitus, it would be evident that many things are changing imperceptibly: crops are growing, but we notice the change only if we look on widely separated days; animals grow, but we never see one growing; felled trees decay, but we may notice that they are rotted through only if our foot happens to fall through when we step on them. Change is exactly what one intelligently ‘discerns’ by paying close attention; imperceptible change is not something contradicted by experience.
