Here’s a fun little list of brain oddities. I remember as a kid my brother and I used to fuck with our heads by saying the same thing over and over again, say for a minute or so, until the phrase seemed so ridiculous that it no longer felt real – it would take on an alien, unrecognizable sense. Try it yourself – pick a word, or a phrase, anything that makes sense to you at the moment. Repeat it to yourself at a comfortable pace over a period of a minute or so. It will shortly seem absurd.
