"At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.”
In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over.
Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms.
When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare"

If you are looking for a good book to read. I recommend this one. 

This entire book was written by a man whose stroke plunged him into a 21 day coma. He awakened to find himself fully paralyzed except for one eye and a part of his head. He survived an entire month, enough to publish an entire book. 

How did he do this?

He dictated his book one character at a time by blinking his left eyelid while an assistant recited letters. 

200,000 blinks tells his entire story. He died 3 days after the book was published due to pneumonia. 

Holy Shit

People are amazing

There is also a movie about this

yes i read this! i recommend it!

Imagine that when you see a city’s skyline, you taste blackberries.

 Perhaps you are completely convinced that Wednesdays are light red. If you have experiences like these, you might have synesthesia.

Synesthesia means joined perception. 

It’s when your brain perceives one sense such as hearing at the same time with another sense like sight. 

The most common form is confusing letters and objects with colors. Someone might associate a plane with a green color. 

Scientists believe that it happens when there’s cross-wiring in the brain, when neurons in one sensory over cross over to another.

SOURCE AND MORE INFORMATION

here are interesting cases people have submitted to me! 

fun fact: i have major grapheme-colour synesthesia, mostly with numbers

like 1(but not the word one for some reason) is grass-green (like a prairie green i guess it changes sometimes) 2 is bright yellow, nine and ten are dark greys, and 31 is forest green (i have others but those were the first ones that i recognised when i was little)

as you can imagine, precalc is a trip

I HAVE THIS OMG

I think I have it too

My numbers have personalities and genders god damn I’m weird

I think I have this. I associate numbers with colors. Like 5 is really red, 8 is yellow, 7 is blue, 9 is orange, 4 is green, etc.

I want a movie about a little girl, aged like 11-12, going through the stuggles of prepubescent girl life, with her entire inner monologue is narrated by Samuel L. Jackson.

Shot of disgruntled adorable little girl.

SLJ: I knew that Susie was a backstabbin’ motherfucker, and if anyone was going to ruin my chances of being Miss Sugar Drop Queen, it was that asshole. 

I didn’t know I needed this in my life until now.
