This Viral Photo Can Tell You If You Need Glasses

“This is an optical illusion created by neuroscientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which shows how images, words and objects can be hidden with textures.If you stand far away from the photo and see Marilyn Monroe, then you need to make an appointment with your eye doctor Asap. Science explains the trick, saying, “Depending on how well you’re able to focus or pick up contrast, your eye will only pick out details. Up close, we’re generally able to pick up fine details like Einstein’s mustache and wrinkles. But as the distance increases, or if your vision is poor and creates a more blurred image in the first place, your ability to pick up details fades away.”

So I hauled ass down to the optometrist, after what seemed like a thousand trial and error retinal scans, it was determined that my left eye is carrying all the load of my concentration whenever I needed to focus on distant objects and even while reading.

Three years ago I found out that eyeglass (decent ones that you want on your face 24/7) cost more than a freaking iPad,  the prices tags made my eyes pop and drained my wallet of $600; yes I fell for the anti-glare, UV filter and all that other add on crap . Then months later after wearing my first pair of glasses…lets call it “Face Jewelry” well about 4 months later, one day I forgot to grab it with me, and I realized that the same sign that I previously struggled to read half a block away…I WAS NOW ABLE TO SEE  THIS SIGN AGAIN FINE, WITHOUT THE FACE JEWELERY.

At the time, the only thing that I could attribute this to was; I had started a new routine for a month, drinking much more water than usual 101 fl oz a day to be exact, this was to go along with new my workout routine to get down to a lower body fat percentage, this may have inadvertently helped my eyesight, who knows, maybe I was chronically dehydrated for years without knowing it. Either way, stubborned me, happy with whatever the reason, I didn’t have to wear this shit on my face anymore, I ditch the glasses all together until  they eventually dissappeared, lost.

Now after seeing Marilyn’s face today, I’m back to square one with this neat looking pair. Had the opinion of three lovely ladies at the optometrist, out of 9 choices, they all choose this nerdy looking piece, which I sort of like too. So I guess this is it, my new look.

Memory

There are weird ‘glitch moments’ as I would like to call them where I’d be walking to the subway or eating lunch, like today, and suddenly a long forgotten memory will SMACK, plant itself vividly into my present time. So while cleaning out my PC today, sorting out the shit from what’s important then backing up thousands of photos and videos, it is in that moment I realize that our brains are far more superior to that sleek iMac starring back at me on my desk. Don’t get me wrong I’m fully aware long before that our brains are vastly superior to a CPU, however I never really had a direct reason to stare back at my screen to ponder on it and compare processes. What interest me though is one process and that is how we don’t store thousands of snapshots per month or long recordings of our day-to-day for recollection like we use a Computer’s Hard Drive for.

Imagine if we had to occasionally organize our memory banks, choosing yearly what we want to keep or chuck in the mental recycling bin – that would be a very tedious process – thank god that task is an automated process in our heads. Somewhere in between the intricacies, our brains or maybe our consciousness decides what to tag & grab from the fleeting thoughts and moments, however best believe that what it chooses to grab is only quality moments be good, bad, funny or sad times, and these quality moments never fade or leave you throughout the years here.

In order to quickly remember almost anything, I’ve come to the realization that I only need to associate them with an emotion, it’s my mental tag I guess. For example the pictures above, look at her face fr a minute, for me it displayed all these micro-emotions, expressing way deeper thought beyond just enjoying the meal in front of her. I absorbed these for a while, all the happenings and the feelings of that moment was already being stored mentally way before I thought about grabbing my camera. Actually, had I not have my camera with me that snapshot, that moment would have been etched in my brain regardless. She had no idea that I took these snaps until later.

Tilted my head back for a minute, felt like just a few minutes later I got a tap on my shoulder “Sir you can wake up now, we’ve landed”. Checked my watch, sure enough its 8:12am, we took off at 6:00am. I swear, I think someone drugged me, but i loved it, wish for this to happen more frequently, like EVERY FLIGHT I TAKE. Thank you Delta for the 40k sky-miles..
