Here’s something really interesting I’ve come across today. It might sound a bit weird and horrible but I’d like to try this… wonder if it works.
Anyway, here it goes: how to make your eye feels like itâ€™s closed, when itâ€™s actually open.
From Cognitive Daily:
This morning I went into the darkest room in our house (the kidsâ€™ bathroom), closed the door, and turned off the lights for 5 minutes. There was enough light coming in through the crack in the door that after a minute or two I could begin to make out shapes in the room: A towel rack, the shower curtain. My eyes had adapted to the dark condition. Then I closed my right eye and covered it with my hand. I turned the lights back on, for a minute, until my left eye had adapted to the light. Then I turned the lights off.
I could still see the towel rack and shower curtain with my right eye, which remained adapted to darkness. But my left eye could see nothing. In fact, my left eye felt as if it was closed. I made every effort to open the eye, but it seemed that some unstoppable force was keeping it closed. The only way to make my eye feel as if it was open was to cover it with my hand. I still couldnâ€™t see anything with the eye, but at least I could convince myself it was open.
It sounds horrible, doesn’t it? Yet, I’m quite curious. I believe there’s all sorts of tricks you can do to make your body act in a certain way or believe certain things. Can’t see how this is different…
