That during an accident most people experience something like time slowing down. This occurs when the brains memory takes in twice as much information. So the more memory you take in the longer time slows down.
Yeah, that's a cool phenomenon. I am ex-Army. Combat causes time to slow down as well. Very trippy.
I have no idea what the most interesting thing I know is, but after a week that just seems to be dragging on into eternity, squid are the first things that comes to mind. Squid (and other associated cephalopods) are pretty rad. Their ability to rapidly adjust their camouflage to complex patterns resembling their immediate environment is impressive on its own. The fact that they can use their colouration for active communication is even more impressive. The fact that they can use colouration for active communication without breaking their camouflage is even more impressive still.
And the fact that squid actively communicate at all is pretty remarkable in itself. A number of cephalopods show signs of relatively high intelligence, which is fascinating in light the considerable differences between their nervous systems and those of other intelligent animals (notably humans ourselves).
The most interesting things to me is already mentioned, the rest of the universe, and music. Music can really affect my mood and feelings. But another thing I find interesting and kind of weird is dreams. I can have a dream one night, that feels really clear and coherent. About something dramatic, nice or just casual. And think about it the rest of the following day, and sometimes it stays in my mind several days. And I know that it is just made up jibberish from my brain. But I can get really passionate about the "story" that unfolded in my mind that night. It is not like I am making it up on purpose, but somtimes the dreams are just so... awesome =P
I will go with Neill deGrasse Tyson on this one. The most incredible thing I know about our World is, that every single atom in and around us on and in the whole Earth has been "made" inside a gigantic star which exploded as a supernova, producing a gigantic cloud of dust which in turn collapsed and built our solar system.
We are literally star dust.
P.S.: Yes, I know the hydrogen Atoms are an exception, but they came into being thanks to the big bang <- even more incredible
Although a lot of people claim to know a lot of things, all of us really don't know much of anything at all and Its ok not to know. Admitting that one doesn't know is very liberating.
Late as usual. My answer is: That I wasn't given life by a god. Totally blew me away when I found out. I will probably be marveled by that for the rest of my life.
The most interesting thing that I know,
If you hold the door close button on an elevator and hold the floor you want to go to until the door closes and the elevator starts to move. The elevator will not stop to pick up other passengers until you have reached the desired floor.
I bet that depends on the manufacturer or the elevator or the control panel.
He was such a cool guy.
Religion is a term created by man to subdue anomy.
