Handy illusions

you've probably seen a lot of optical or visual

illusions

but you can't believe your eyes well there are tactile

illusions

too and you might remember this one we had it on the show not too long ago cross your fingers they actually do something like a wire there and you rub it on each side of your nose so that one finger is on one side and the other on the other and if you do it for about half a minute, maybe a little longer, you get a very peculiar feeling like you have two noses , it really is quite strong, you can try it after the show, the reason is that you are actually playing that part and that part, you uncross your fingers, you can see that normally that part in that part the two of you are rubbing your nose with your fingers crossed would only be touched by two separate objects and after a while that's what your fingers tell your brain you have two objects there two noses actually well that's a tactile illusion where you're actually fooling to your brain a As for what you feel, there is another.

You need a friend for Dean. Can you lend me your hands? Please can you put them together like this? that's it now i'm going to point my finger and see if you can move the right move that wrong move that one and a third very mysterious isn't it because your eyes are telling your brain what to move move that one that one would not go back to wrong hand your eyes are used to seeing your fingers in a different orientation but if i touch the finger oh that's easy easy because now feeling one overrides the eyes and just responds to the feeling itself so that's the way what can you do one sense cancels another here's another one that's very peculiar take a look at this can i borrow your forearm sir certainly now that's the elbow of your elbow the part where it actually rotates don't touch it that's very important what I'm going to do What I have to do is have my fingers run up your forearm while you have your eyes closed.

Well, I want you to tell me when I'm about to reach the crook of your elbow. trundle is a fun type of move weird feeling also going left right up your forearm but i'll only tell you half way now oh well tell me when i'm at the top of your center to go yeah you're almost there check it out really not much more than half in fact that's very consistent most people recover fine they can get to a quarter of the forearm but not much closer it's a very peculiar feeling if you don't believe me get a friend over and try it yourself
