I’ve blogged on several serious topics recently regarding our brain and research associated to the substantial power we humans possess within our body cells for recuperation and healing.  And they’ve gotten a bit lengthy I’ve noticed. In March, I intend to give your eyes a bit of a rest and bring in my blog conclusions with fewer words.

So, for now, have fun with this concluding February  LEAP DAY Blog. 

Read the following three paragraphs quickly:

 

Olny srmat poeple can raed tihs.

I cdnuolt blveivee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, maens taht it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the lttteers in a wrod are, the oln iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

You could do it, right? Surprised? You can scan and comprehend these words almost as fast as if they had been unscrambled.  Researchers conclude we are able to do this because the brain (mind) overrides our senses.  Anna Roe, chief researcher on this Yale team project, says, “the brain is reflecting what we are feeling, even if that’s not what really is. She further concludes that we also think we know what’s out there in the physical world, but it’s all interpreted by our brains.

“Everything we sense is an illusion to a degree.”
