This is going to be hard to put into words, but I will try my best.
Over the past couple years, I have been observing us humans, and we are quite the interesting animal. I realize now that each human has unique
stimuli, and these stimuli can have interesting effects on the human brain and body.
Let me give an example. I had a ringtone on my phone that I used as a morning alarm. One day in class, someone had the same ringtone, but they used
it when people called. Anyway, when I heard that sound in class, out of context, it really disoriented me and automatically made me think of waking
up to that sound.
Okay, if that example wasn't clear, I am going to give one more.
I recently starting rolling my own American Spirit tobacco ciggarettes. I over time noticed a strange stimulus and its effect on me when it came to
rolling tobacco. If you know about rolling, most people use their saliva to moisten the paper in order to close it. Similar to an envelope
basically. Anyway, so recently, when I get to the point of rolling the tobacco where it is time to lick, my mouth starts to salivate before I even
This made me laugh and think of that experiment with dogs in which a bell rang every time before they recieved their food. After a while, they would
ring the bell, and would notice that the dogs would start salivating even before food was put before them.
I find this kind of stuff really interesting, and was wondering if you have any personal stimuli that cause a certain effect within yourself, or if
you have noticed this in other humans.
