Using virtual reality, neuroscientists simulated the effects of invisibility in subjects and found it gave them confidence in front of a crowd


www.theguardian.com...


Henrik Ehrsson, a senior author on the study, said follow-up work would look at whether the sensation of being invisible affects people’s moral decision making. That would “ensure that future invisibility cloaking does not make us lose our sense of right and wrong, which Plato asserted over two millennia ago.”


If I was invisible I know what I'd do. I think it would be a hard learning curve.

I admit it. My already low moral code would drop lower were I invisible. Imagine the possibilities...

I would breathe on people's glasses and make them all foggy.

And walk around holding one of those dog leashes that makes it look like I have an invisable dog.
That's probably it though.

I really can't feel comfortable in front of a crowd and I'm sure I would do better If i felt invisable.

This explains why the anonymity of the internet brings out the worst in people.

More than a century on and HG Wells is still teaching us lessons.

A friend who took up the hijab for a pilgrimage to Mecca told me what an amazing sense of liberation it gave her to be invisible under her black robes. Make what you will of this.
