What miqrah calls 'qeri'

The corollary of attention is expectation. 
To expect is to reach beyond ‘attending to what there is’ to ‘attending to what could be’. 
Once we have expectation we can shade into acquiring new knowledge by encountering and apprehending the unexpected. Expecting the unexpected with vigilance is the task of the right hemisphere. 
The left hemisphere views the world through an objectifying lens. The left hemisphere's style of vision is with detachment. That cold, bureaucratic stance might well be what miqrah calls 'qeri'. The detachment of the left hemisphere is the posture one adopts to a stranger, an alien. 
The biblical exhortation to view with love is tantamount to the empowerment of the right hemisphere in the apprehension of the ideological sphere.
