The team of scientists decided to conduct a "philosophical experiment" to find out whether a person can perceive the world around us objectively, regardless of its position, understanding and "plants" of the brain.Experiment with coins / © Johns Hopkins University
As it turned out when people saw coins, one of which was actually round, against the background, they most often could not determine that the second, on the contrary, had the form of an ellipse. Moreover, such an installation remained regardless of whether the coins were fixed or spinning around their axis if they had different shapes or were the same, showed them on the computer screen or items were directly in front of the participants of the experiment.
According to scientists when people look at any objects, the brain identifies them by combining unprocessed visual information with rooted assumptions and knowledge about the world as a whole and the subject in particular. That is, when you take a round coin and put it under the tilt in relation to yourself, the light from the coin falls to you in the form of an oval or ellipse. Despite this, the brain "goes beyond" information and makes "see" a round shape.
"Our subjective approach to the world remains with us, – told Jorge Morales, one of the authors of the" test ". – Even WHEN WE TRY TO PERCEIVE THE WELLD AS IT IS IN FACT, WE CANNOT COMPLETELY DISCARD OUR POINT OF VIEW. ". SO FAR, SCIENTSTS SPENT THE FIRST EXPERIMENT FROM A SERIES OF MANY OTHER. In Collaboration With The Doctors of Philosophy, The DOCTORS OF PHILOSOPHY, THEY PAN TO CONTINUE TO STUDY HOW OUR STEREOTYPES – ESPECIALLY GENDER – AFFECT PERCEPTION.
AT The End of Last Year, Experts Confirmed The Findings of the Famous "Marshmallow" Test to the Level of Self-Control. INDITION, LATER IN THE LIKENESS OF THIS EXPERIMENT, CARACATIANS TOOK PART.
