if my family or friends loved me they would not keep me as a veggie for 12 years…. sorry not sorry
As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.
Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.
Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.
In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.
Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.
These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.
While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.
HOLY STEAMING SHITFUCKS
WHY IS EVERYONE NOT LOSING THEIR SHIT ABOUT THIS
What a fucking nightmare, just kill me.
Dashi-Dorzho Itigilov is a Buddhist Lama considered to have reached Nirvana, due to the lifelike state of his corpse, which is not subject to macroscopic decay. He died in 1927 and upon the latest examination in 2002, scientists and pathologists stated his body is “in the condition of someone who had died 36 hours ago”.
The Proud Family in Real Life:
Oscar & Trudy Proud = Martin & Gina
Sunset & Felix = Sofia Vergara & Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family)
Suga Mama = Madea
Bobby = Trinidad James
Dijonay Jones = Kim Parkers (Moesha & The Parkers)
this is actually perfect.
I always made the Dijonay/Kim comparison
A newspaper photographer was trying to take a picture of the fog looking over Wuhan Yangtze River in Wuhan, at Hubei province in China.
In the background you will notice a body falling. It unbelievable how so many words a photo can say. People getting on with their lives, cars driving past and someone so low in their lives they feel they need to take their own and it going unnoticed it happening by the rest of the world
This is so deep:(
it breaks my heart…
This was in the papers today and I couldn’t Believe it. It broke my heart
His lover jumped right after him…
How do you know his lover jumped right after him? And I was breathless for a second when I saw this.
