Now you mention it I do seem to remember a similar post about a year ago. But I've never seen such a good example as this before. I actually find this abomination of English easier to read than txt-spk!

THE HMUAN MNID

it is fascinating as it supports the idea that the brain works at many convenient levels bit like dns resolving it's looking to the first layer of stored skeletal reference - the shape of the word - to see if it fits a recognized pattern and then fits that to a logical context construction if it's perceived to make sense in context it accepts it. What's staggering I find is the speed that it can do this at and the fact as far as they can tell there should be no limits to the amount of information the brain can store and retrieve.

Yeah but doesn't explain why I can't remember a dam thing Sad

This has reminded me of the recent programms that have been on looking into a highly specific form of I think autism where the person is able to process incredible amounts of information through mentally visualizing it as having physical shape and colour ,wish I could remember what it was called but it was most interesting Smile
