Reality Distortion: What do you see?
to explain what i mean i offer a simple example:
you are 50 ft back, staring at a fire-lit scene, where there is a small bonfire surrounded by chairs against the backdrop of woods. when you scan the scene left or right (or the opposite), you take in the dancing light, the shadows it casts around it, and the sight / smell of the woods,
but if you were looking intently, directly above the flames, you could see the heat causing the air to take on a distorted look, bending what we see,
unless i was intently looking at it, my eyes would skip over this distortion and not register it, this made me wonder, how often does this happen? am i not seeing everything despite me thinking i am? is there something within my spectrum of vision that would require an explanation prior for my brain to be able to see it?
so, how about it? do you see something others do not? have you learned something that has literally changed how you see reality? are there distortions out there, rifts, etc, that can only be seen if the right thought is in the mind?
of course there are! all the time everyone sees everything incredibly different and hears things differently too. it is amazing we can communicate at all.
the very nature of time is a “distortion”. Just like the frames in a movie, we do not experience a true flow of time, our brains simply do not work that way. We process individual “frozen” moments and weave them into a coherent flow.
There are plenty of other examples of this happening. For instance, take a moment and and read this sentence and see if you notice anything. Now read it again, but this time read each individual word on its own, rather than as a part of a sentence.
I read a book about hypnosis a while ago, and a part in the book might take some interest in this conversation. I cant quote exactly what was said but I can tell the jist of it.
So there was an experiment that occurred, it involved a man and his daughter; as well as the scientists, hypnotists and any others in the room to observe.
So basically, they were able to make him not only ‘not see’ his own daughter, but fucking see through his daughter SOMEHOW. He was told what happened after the experiemnt happened. Now I’m not going to get into if this was morally a right thing to do (i could imagine the dad freaking out)
But my point of putting this in this conversation, is that with this in mind, imagine what we could be getting hypnotized or ‘brainwashed’ not to see. everyday!
Very interesting @mentalkink! *0*
(Btw, this thing reminds me a dream i had once where there is a mobile phone like iPhone which have some applications to activate or desactivate some functions of the brain XD).
@aleen, I don’t believe that its true that we only use 10% of our brains. I believe that shenaigians, to a certain degree. And that sounds like a rather insane dream :P
