There is no denying the fact that the brain is an amazing part of the human body. Scientists have yet to unlock many of its mysteries and it is unlikely that they will ever fully comprehend all that the brain has to offer. It is even said that we only use a small portion of our brain, so our abilities may be far beyond what now exists. Even though that is the case, it is still possible to trick the brain in a variety of ways. One of the interesting ways that the brain can be tricked is first by [More]
Most of us feel as if we have a fairly good grip on reality but the truth is, we may be fooled more easily than what we think. After all, it is not always reality that makes a difference in what we see but rather, it is our perception of reality. As a matter of fact, many people consider perception to be the real reality. That factor will be demonstrated in this video. An optical illusion is something that tricks the mind into thinking that the eye is seeing something different than what is actually there. In many cases, it [More]
When most of us think about the human organ that is responsible for sight, we automatically think about the eyes. If you think that your vision is completely focused on your eyeballs, however, you’re absolutely wrong. As you view something, the eyeball focuses the light on the retina and then the rods and cones are affected by the light. After that takes place, then something rather amazing happens that most people fail to consider. The information that is gathered by our eyes travels along the optic nerve and enters into the brain. It is then that it is interpreted by [More]
When most of us think about psychology, the first thing that comes to our mind is a doctor sitting in front of us and trying to analyze the way that we think. Although that may be true in a loose sense, you might be surprised to learn exactly how much our vision has to do with our mind. Of course, we realize that the images we see are from light gathered in the eyes and transmitted as data to the brain, but there are other ways in which it can be seen as well. One of those methods is known [More]
Some tests are very easy for us to take and others may be quite difficult. At times, there may even be a test that appears to be easy on the surface but when you begin to try to do it, you quickly find out that it is one of the hardest things you have ever tried in your life. That just may be your experience when you try this particular test. Some people can do it easily but others find it to be incredibly hard. The concept behind the test is easy to understand. You will see a brick ledge [More]
When it comes to human strength, most of us tend to think about our physical abilities. We may go to the gym regularly and could even exercise at home, strengthening our muscles, building our physique and becoming stronger. The fact of the matter is, however, physical strength is only a part of our overall abilities. You also need to think about your mental strength and if you don’t have a strong mind, you could be in for some serious problems. When you think about your own mind, do you consider it to be exceptionally strong? Many people do, but when [More]
Are you looking for a rather interesting, yet fun experiment to play at a party or perhaps to show to your children? This is going to be the one that will amaze everyone. After all, it uses a combination of science and mathematics to direct you around the board so that the answer is going to be obvious. It doesn’t matter where you begin, you will land on the proper square and you can spin it any way you want. In this video game, it is done to show if you are going to live or die but it is [More]
If there is something that most of us know about people in general, it’s the fact that there are no two people alike. In fact, many people are unique in their own, special way and this is really what helps to make the world what it is. Although people may exhibit their uniqueness in different ways, one of the ways that it is often seen is in the way that we think. People tend to either be analytical or creative, something that is usually referred to as being left brained or right brained. Scientists have sometimes tried to disprove the [More]
Many of us would consider ourselves to be normal, even though normal is actually rather subjective. After all, what defines being normal for one individual is certainly not going to define the same for someone else. In fact, like the people that we have known in our lives that we would consider to be rather eccentric but in reality, they are perfectly normal for their own mind and personalities. If you would like to find out more about what is really behind the scenes, this little mind test can go a long way in helping you. After taking it, it [More]
