Camping is in tents.
 
A long read, but an absolutely fascinating one about the 'intense world' theory of autism, and one that dovetails with my own experience.

As an introvert most of these myths are a mixed bag of truths, half truths, and lies. And I'm sure all introverts know that.

Enjoying some mild weather on the Chain of Rocks Bridge. The St. Louis Arch should be dimly visible in the background haze overlooking the "bridge".

And gamers complain about 80ms ping times...
 
Synchronicity : We are always living slightly behind reality. While this is just a few milliseconds, it's still something which is quite interesting.

Article Extract: "Time" is something that both philosophers and physicists have been wondering for about, well, a long time. And now, the neuroscientists have joined in. They have found a man who, when he looks at you, hears what you are saying to him before your lips move.

About two to three months after the onset of the myaesthenia gravis, Mr PH noticed something strange about his daughter's TV sets. He was hearing people on the TV speak before he saw the lips move and he said to his daughter: "Hey, you've got two TVs that need sorting!" But the TVs were fine. Instead, something odd was happening to the timing circuits inside his brain. Now you might not realise this, but in terms of vision you are always living 0.3 second (or 300 milliseconds) behind reality. That's how long it takes between when the incoming light lands on the cells in your retina, and you get that full magnificent wraparound 3D colour sensation that we call vision.

We don't notice this delay in reality because we have evolved to be able to deal with this. We can anticipate actions or patterns through experience. Now it turns out that it also takes time for the incoming audio signals from our ears to be processed. If you've ever dealt with audio and video computer files, you would know that the audio files are much much smaller than the video files. So in the case of the human brain, when the Brodmann areas associated with hearing, areas 41 and 42, start processing the incoming audio information, they can do so quite quickly, because the amount of data is rather small. Normally, we process this audio information in just 100 milliseconds.

So how come we normally see the lips moving at the same time as we hear the voice? Almost certainly, it's because our brain deliberately inserts a delay of about 200 milliseconds on the audio circuit.

Why does vision take so long to resolve? : There's a lot that has to happen inside your head. First, the rods or the cones in your retina turn the incoming light into electricity. Then the remaining nine layers of cells in the retina compress and process that electricity. By this time, your retina 'knows' the difference between a horizontal bar in your field of view and a vertical bar. Furthermore, your retina 'knows' if it's a white bar on a black background or vice versa. Then the compressed signal gets sent along the optic nerves to some sections of your brain right at the back of your skull called the Brodmann areas 17, 18 and 19. These then decompress and deconvolute the electrical information to give you this thing we call 'vision'. This all takes a significant amount of time — 300 milliseconds.
