Really cool. Probably looked really weird while filming, but offers a really cool perspective.

Also hurts brains when you start to try to figure out what direction he and other players were actually walking while filming this =P

Krista and Tatiana Hogan are craniopagus twins, meaning they’re connected at the head.
They share a structure that connects Krista’s thalamus to Tatiana’s. The thalamus is a double-lobed organ that plays important roles in processing sensory input and creating consciousness.
Since Krista’s and Tatiana’s thalami are connected, scientists and members of the Hogan family think the girls might view the world differently than the rest of us do.
For example, Dr. Cochrane believes the girls can see through each other’s eyes. He came to this conclusion after covering Krista’s eyes, placing electrodes on her head, and watched Krista’s brain respond after shining a light in Tatiana’s pupils.
Other times, one girl will be watching TV while the other is looking somewhere else. Suddenly, the twin not watching TV will start laughing at what’s happening onscreen. 
Their “thalamic bridge” also affects their sense of taste. Krista is a ketchup fiend, but Tatiana hates the stuff. Once, Krista was eating ketchup, and Tatiana furiously tried to wipe it off her own tongue even though she wasn’t eating any ketchup herself. 
Perhaps the strangest phenomenon of all is that the twins sometimes use the word “I” to describe both of themselves at once.
As of 2011, no one had run any conclusive tests on the girls and their odd condition. However, scientists who have observed their behavior and brain scans are flabbergasted and excited. While no one can say for sure at the moment, it really does seem Krista and Tatiana can share private thoughts and perceive what the other is sensing.
As someone who wants to study consciousness in the future, I can say this is one of the most extraordinary cases I have ever heard of.

Excelano Project does it again

This a self-serving Tumblr announcement to say that Excelano Project has done it again, and shaken me to my core.

Whereas before, I’ve taken all of this inspirational energy and try to just shove it into words, I think it’s more important than ever to create a context for what I should write before I do it. I need to write explicitly about the things that are important to me, and I need to know them for myself, before I can start answering questions about the things I don’t know, much less in poetic verse.

This is a self-serving post, but it’s a post to hold myself accountable to put more of myself into writing. I think a lot of the shock value and inspiration I derive from these Excelano shows is just proportional to how much I feel like I stray from myself, and I think the reason for that is to not know myself through and through.

I’m going to try to regularly post text posts about things I care about, at some length, and I will do my best/make sure to not stray too far from the point, which is something I do far too often. Above all, this is about voicing myself, a process that I can only understand does not happen only intuitively, as I’ve been assuming. It happens with conscious acknowledgement and adaptation.

"The present moment is inevitable."

There is no topic more relevant to me at the present moment than to bring myself into focus, for myself, which facing a future in an industry I (must admit) don’t profess to love has brought into focus. I really think I found myself at the juncture where people begin to compromise being true to oneself for security. Hopefully I’m not too late.

Hey, adults of the world

How about instead of making kids terrified to ever fuck up

You teach them how to cope with the aftermath of fucking up and fix it as best they can

That way they’re not so overwhelmed with anxiety every time there’s even so much as a chance of making mistakes that they never try anything and dread making decisions because of it
