How Your Nose Knows

By Ruth and Edward Brecher

My, But this tastes good!” you remark as you take your first sip o piping-hot onion soup, salted, peppered, seasoned with herbs and garnished with cheese.

You’re wrong, of course. writing-sense-of-smellYou mean that the soup smells good. Your sense of taste tells you only whether a substance is sweet, sour, salty or bitter. It is your sense of smell that reveals the true savor of the soup. Try sipping onion soup while holding your nose, or when you have a head cold. The characteristic flavor vanishes.

You can Learn to see more

By wolfgang langewiesche
Catching-the-Reading-BugA Bit of light comes into the eye an electric impulse flits through the brain and we “see.” Science doesn’t really know, what light is or what the mind is but much is now known about the miracle of seeing. Neurologists have shown how the eye registers pictures of objects and how the brain electrically interprets the pictures. Psychologists have demonstrated that our past experiences, our expectations and our emotions color everything we see, so that it’s actually the I behind our eye that sees. Much of this knowledge is new, and it carries a great idea: we can learn to use our eyes more effectively than we do. We can see more. Read more →
