Visual Perception Video Creates Strange After-Effects
WARNING: Do not watch this video if you suffer from photosensitive epilepsy.
This trippy but very cool video from ScienceForum has been made to experience mild hallucinogenic (visual distortion) effects upon termination of the video. If you watch the video and follow the instructions exactly, you should experience visual waves and distortions for approximately from 5-10 seconds after the video’s completion. The repetitive patterns in the video create recurring psychological stimulation that continues after the video has stopped. If you spell out the letters in the video, there is a hidden message. Also the effects are much better if you view it on full screen. Have fun!

Lately, since I have a very limited amount of down time available, versus most of the year. I’m cramming in a lot of things I want to get done. One, as I’ve mentioned before, was music.
This summer, I have been overloaded by thousands of songs, hundreds of albums, EPs, demos, and singles, more than my mind can process, or keep up at the moment. And it’s great! I love it! I sit for hours on end, or wherever I am, and really get into it, trying to analyze it, the composition, what is it that the piece is trying to communicate, what parts are interesting and why I really enjoy the piece, what makes it unique, or what makes it really bad.
And of course, I have been spending a lot of quality time with all 3 of my guitars. I am learning a lot about the 3 of them, their personalities, as well as guitar theory, and interesting guitar scales from around the world.
I am currently making a list of classical composers I want to really study a bit further, since they have influenced me a lot while growing up, and they influence much of where my compositions come from.
Handel, Beethoven„ Mozart, Haydn, Schubert, Prokofiev, Bach, Paganini, Strauss, Mendolssohn, Rachmaniov, Weber, Rossini, Chopin, Villa-Lobos, Franck, Puccini, Hildegard Von Bingen.
The Enfield Poltergeist - True Events of a Haunted Girl
“Just before I died, I went blind, and then I had an hemorrhage and I fell asleep and I died in the chair in the corner downstairs.”
The eerie voice — which can still be heard on audio tapes today — is purportedly that of Bill Wilkins. The recording was made in Enfield, North London, in the 1970s, several years after his death.
Most horrifying of all, however, was that the voice was coming from the body of an 11-year-old girl, Janet Hodgson. She appeared to be possessed. It could have been a scene from the film The Exorcist — but it was real. The rasping male voice sent a chill through the room. Hauntingly, it delivered a message from beyond the grave, describing in graphic detail the moment of his own death through a living person.
Investigators experienced Lego pieces flying across the room, and marbles, and the extraordinary thing was, when you picked them up they were hot. Clothes flew across the room, sofas levitated, furniture spun round and was flung across the room, and the family would be hurled out of their beds at night. There were cold breezes, physical assaults, graffiti, water appearing on the floor, and even claims of matches spontaneously bursting into flame.
The ongoing knocking was one of the most chilling aspects of the case. It would run down the wall, fading in and out as it apparently played an unnerving game with the family — who became so scared that they slept in the same room, with the light on.
It’s been a very long time since I last visited you. To be honest I can’t remember the last time, except a few days before I walked out on my parents. I try to visit whenever I could… But the thought of you not being around, and sharing all these memories with everyone, just hurts too much.
The world has changed so much yet, in a way, stayed the same. I think you would have enjoyed the time we’re in now versus back then. I think you would’ve finally found what you really wanted, and searched for so long, in this time and space.
…I miss you…being here…because there were so many things that all of us have experienced over the years that you would’ve loved. They have a rock climbing gym in Brooklyn called Brooklyn Boulders that I go to with a friend of mine from the gym at Hunter. They’re opening an even bigger one in Long Island City called The Cliffs that has a bouldering wall like a shark. Oooo! And there’s an archery lane by Adams called ProLine. You would’ve had a blast there!! Recently I participated in what’s called a Spartan Race. It’s a timed race like any 5k or running event but it’s on a mountain ridge up in Tuxedo , NY, which I think you would have laughed about, especially after telling you that it requires you to run up and down the thing including 15+ obstacles and mud! Cool right?
I’m glad that I still write to you in my journals. I think it’s one of the things that’s really done anything for me over these years to cope. Especially when I miss talking and hanging out with you. I’ve been doing pretty well for a while now since then.
The biggest thing to have happened in the time you’ve been gone… Was Arelys’ wedding to Tina. I think you would have loved Tina, here dad, Mick, and their friends in Georgia.
…I know I promised that I wouldn’t cry…but it’s hard not to, even while writing this. You would’ve made jokes about it if any of us cried over silly things like this. Actually, no, I take that back…you would’ve punched us in the gut… And HARD, while giving us that sly smile of yours… You would’ve told us to stop, suck it up, and stop being a frigging wuss.
Looking back, the hardest years to cope was probably senior year, when everyone I cared about had already graduated, went away to college, or joined the military. I felt gyped out, being in the wrong graduation class. And it got pretty lonely. Arelys was moving to Georgia, and I wasn’t going to have my best friend around anymore… So I ended up visiting you very frequently to have some company…at the time, things were getting pretty rough but I rather not write about them since you’ve heard them so many times back then.
But coming here today… Makes me smile…because I really do miss you. And being here, in a way. is very bittersweet.
Love you always,
I don’t know about you but when I’m very involved in reading a book, especially one that has many memorable, and meaningful passages. I try to remember what page and which line I had saw them on. Sometimes I get so caught in reading them that I don’t want to stop reading …and I’ll tell myself that I’d go back to it once I stop reading….Of course that never happens.
And I get a bit disappointed and sad about it….It’s like losing a precious trinket in a heap of rubble if that makes any sense. Most of the times it’s when people are talking to me. I can’t multitask if my life depended on it…well…except for one thing in which I won’t share.
Despite that. My coffee mug that I got from volunteering over the SciOly cracked …my best friend/roommate did the dishes and propped it in a bad angle that the dishes fell into the sink and it cracked the side of the glass mug. It’s no biggy. I got a bit upset but it went over in an instant.
It was a thank you gift for volunteering at the SciOly this past year.
It’s weird. I’m in this in voided/numb state…and I haven’t been able to shake it off lately… this bothers me a bit since…it only happens when I know I’m having one of my “bad” days…over the years they barely come up anymore. I suppose because of my ex-fiance trying to contact me that it brought some bad emotions back up.
And it could be due to the fact that I told a particular individual that I missed them. Which I extremely hate to say, or even feel … because it stings…and still brings a burning pain in my chest whenever I think about being affectionate with someone—which would be the first since the ex fiance..which is a very, very, very long time. 5-6 years passed and it still can cause this much ache down to the core.
I just need to keep staying focused…I’ve been okay for the 2 out of the 5 years…and definitely in a better state….so I shouldn’t let it get to me.
