Yea our brain can notice things that are mind can't but it's pointless when gaming. Because those thoughts are stored in a part of your brain where you don't even realize you've seen something. You know like subliminal messages on T.V. you don't realize them but your mind stores it.
Scientifically they have found you only need like 40 fps and you have smooth gameplay. You wouldn't be able to tell a difference if you upped your fps to 100. The comparison you made is wrong it would actually be like being able to tell the difference between 100Hz and 150Hz refresh rate.
