So I thought to post this here, as an amazing study on the capacity of the human mind. I received this in an email, so I don't no the source. Please post if you can find it.

This is a study of how quickly the human brain works anagrams. Only 55 out of one hundred can do this, so don't feel bad if you cannot. Have fun with it.

From the email:


I've seen this with the letters out of order, but this is the first time I've seen it with numbers. Good example of a Brain Study: If you can read this OUT LOUD you have a strong mind. And better than that: Alzheimer's is a long, long, way down the road before it ever gets any where near you.

To my 'selected' strange-minded friends: If you can read the following paragraph, forward it on to your friends with 'yes' in the subject line. Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!


If you can raed this, you have a sgtrane mnid, too.


Can you raed this? Olny 55 people out of 100 can.

I cdnuolt blveiee that I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd what I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in what oerdr the ltteres in a word are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is that the frsit and last ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can still raed it whotuit a pboerlm. This is bcuseaethe huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the word as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? Yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt!

I think only 55 people can read it because 55 people out of 100 have used the internet and see this crap all the time.

Sadly, it dawned on me that 45 of out 100 people reading this probably think we are morons without a spell check.

This is kind of like those color blind tests where some people cannot see the 7 and think we are pulling their leg..

Edited to add translation:

"According to card-carrying linguistics professionals at an unnamed university in British Columbia, and contrary to the dubious claims of the uncited research, a simple, mechanical inversion of internal characters appears sufficient to confuse the everyday onlooker."

I don`t think there is much too this despite its initial eye catching effect. It appears to be a well travelled internet meme.

Ancient Hebrew has always interested me... it's been explained as basically writing with consonants only, no vowels. Never studied it, so I can't say.

Asian syntax has always been of interest with a lack of spacing...

And learning Sanskrit is on my bucket list.


Language is fascinating.

I do a lot of writing in my free time, and one other thing I find interesting that my brain does, is sometimes, when I'm really tired, I'll mean to type a certain word, but instead my hands type another word or word combination that sounds similar, like "realize" instead of "real eyes." So it's weird the way the brain scrambles, unscrambles, encodes... @.@

Well you shouldn't. It's false. If you have a working mind you can do it. So 99.99% of people. The mind is amazing and special, you aren't (at least not for this reason).

its also interesting to note that without the context of the surrounding words, we would have a much harder time trying to discern most of those words.

Moreover, it's equally as interesting to note that those words, as they are written, have the letters arranged in a way that two letters beside each other can't actually be verbally used beside each other to make a sound. Like bv or hj or kg or tp. This tells the brain, "Hey this isn't a word", so the brain immediately looks for meaning elsewhere in the symbolic representation of meaning.

You might want a look at the Chronicle Project work in ancient Hebrew. It might add to the fascination with seeing how the language actually works.compared to what the translators wanted it to say to hide it from us.
