Much of what we perceive in the world and around us comes from within – as a byproduct of the way the brain processes sensory sensations./
Here are some strange experiments that prove it.
1. Reduce pain without medication
Scientists at Oxford University have discovered a new soothing process. It turns out that when looking at an injured part of the body, then an opposite image is created that is similar to what is shown to us through binoculars, so it looks significantly smaller and the pain in this part is delicately reduced.
2. The Ganzfeld procedure
Sleep comfortably soft bed with headphones in your ears, play static noise from the radio station, and stick to your eyes two halves of ping pong balls. After spending some time in this state, you start to experience strange things.
Some people see horses moving in the clouds and the voices of deceased loved ones are heard. It turns out that the brain is addicted to sensory sensations. When he does not receive them from the surroundings (because of the noise and the balls), he creates his own pictures.
3. The Pinocchio effect
Two people take part in the experiment, one of which brings a bandage of eyes. They sit on two chairs, so the man with a veil of eyes to sit behind the back of the other. Then, with circular movements on one palm, he should touch the tip of his own nose, and on the other – the nose of the man in front of him. So the man with the bound eye gets the feeling that his nose has become much longer. Hence the “Pinocchio effect”.
4. Simultaneous movement
Lift your right foot a few centimeters from the floor and start moving it clockwise. While doing this, try using the right hand index index to type in the number 6. The legs will start to move counterclockwise and you will not be able to do anything about this issue.
5. Playing with the light
This experiment will temporarily blind one eye (about 30 seconds). Get into one room, close the door and turn off the lights, so your room goes up and down dark. Wait until your eyes adjust to the darkness. You should distinguish the silhouette of objects from the rare light that penetrates under the door.
Now close your right eye, cover it with your hand. Leave the light, but keep your eyes closed and covered. Wait about a minute, while the left eye adapts to the light. Open your right eye and look at the room. What do you see? It will be done to you that the left eye is closed, even if it is not.
