“Through her sister’s eyes: Conjoined twins Tatiana and Krista were extraordinary from the beginning. Recent functional MRIs demonstrate that physical sensation can be a shared experience too: one can feel the touch of a hand on the other’s kneecap, identify a particular toe being tugged, laugh when her twin is being tickled. They also may share some motor function. This seemingly magical ability — to see through each other’s eyes, to feel what the other experiences, perhaps even to share thoughts — has stunned neurologists and makes these tiny girls unique in the world. They are conjoined not just by flesh and bone. Their brains are “zippered” together by a neural bridge between the thalami, the sensory processing hubs of their brains. This bridge, which the girls can flitter across at will, has raised questions and inspired a sense of wonder among even the most seasoned specialists.” ~ http://is.gd/PAOTKo
A wondering wandering mind trapped on a planet with too many thoughtless beings. Most days I don't mind. Some days it bugs me. Other days it drives me mad.
For fun I spend time following thought trails like this:
And trying to untangle all my thoughts about things like this:
I’m insatiably curious about human nature.
I am a self-contained think-tank looking for other self-contained think-tanks.
I also participate in a flash mob, play tennis, do animal rescue and collect pretty rocks found in high up places to which I hike.
How about you?
