1 x 1 = 1
11 x 11 = 121
111 x 111 = 12321
1111 x 1111 = 1234321
11111 x 11111 = 123454321
111111 x 111111 = 12345654321
1111111 x 1111111 = 1234567654321
11111111 x 11111111 = 123456787654321
111111111 x 111111111=12345678987654321

Humans capable of seeing into the future

May

The title could be slightly misleading, but a new study from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute suggests that the human visual system is equipped with the ability to foresee the future.

“Assistant Professor Mark Changizi says that it takes nearly one-tenth of a second for the brain to perceive what the eyes see.

To compensate for such neural delays, he claims, the visual system has developed the ability to generate perceptions of what will occur one-tenth of a second into the future. Changizi says that it is due to this quality of the visual system that when an observer actually perceives something, it is the present rather than what happened one-tenth of a second ago.”

Using this hypothesis, Changizi has been able to explain over 50 types of visual illusions because the brain is trying to perceive the future.

Sine Wave Speech

Apr

First listen to the “whistle” sounds on the page (link) – then listen to the clear-speech. Then finally, listen to the whistles again.

This is an example of perceptual learning, and you will be able to perceive new sine-wave speech sentences more clearly.

Masaru Emoto

Emoto claims that prettier (or uglier) water-crystals can be formed by directing human speech or thoughts on water-droplets before being frozen.

Emoto claims this can be achieved through:

  • Prayer
  • Music
  • Attaching written words to a container of water

The formation of the crystals seems to depend on the positive/negative nature of the words used on the droplets.
