well first related thing that comes to mind is that there are shapes that have actually only one side/face, as Moebius Strip and such..

Dude.... Watch this video. That strip is amazing and endless. Could it explain our existence? :shock:

DId you know that the results of all those experements with the Mobius strip is a messy pile of paper waste?

Did you also know that, when blood passes through the kidneys (125 cm cubed does this every minute) to remove urea, only 50% of urea in that sample of blood is removed? So we have urine in our blood all the time. Pitty those vampires now.

Remarkable...

Did you know if someone was drowning and you pull them out of the water, you make them breathe again by farting in their face?

Did you know your brain fills in the middle of words, and many things you read can be read in any order as long as the first and last letter are intact? Try it!

If you can't, sorry, apparently your brain is slow...
-----------------------------------------------------

it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be at the rghit pclae... it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be at the right place

the rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm... the rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without problem

Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe... This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself by the word as a whole.

Also, 0 does not exist as the infinite property does not allow it.

Think about a number line, and 0 is in the middle. Now, break it down by decimals and show EVERY possible decimal before zero. You can never get to zero, you will always get either -.11111111+ or .11111111+, ones going on forever.

The universe is a crazy place.

yes, the brain works pretty much with patterns; pattern recognition is the main feature that allows us to get oriented in day by day life; also this is the thing that makes us see shapes in the nature, like faces in the mountains and others. also a big part in this is played by the ability to regenerate the information received only partially (based on the patterns learned by the subject to that point in life).

through exercise you can get to achieve incredible reading speed, which brings us to this conclusion: our brain can process at much faster speeds than we can comunicate through speach.. so a language with a shorter words vocabulary should theoretically help thinking speed.. but with less letters/sounds per word it's hard to cover a large semantical area (creating a new optimal language might not be ok.. it would be much too mathematical while we are not robots and we sholdn't ever become that). this is why most languages use short words for most common notions. so a good practice would be trying to detach the symbols from the word shapes that simbolize them, ...but this is not necessary for all of us, since our actions are limited by other physical limitations anyway.

That is only a palindrome: a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same basckward as forward, such as:

madam
nurses run

The longest palindrome in history contains 15,139 words:

I can't post it here. I got the following error message:

"Your message contains 91,696 characters. The maximum number of allowed characters is 60,000."

Yes, and when someone runs around in circles all crazy-like, they are said to resemble a "chicken without a head" because when a chicken's head get's chopped off, the rest of the body still runs around.
