mcgurk and me

Let’s spend less than two minutes with the McGurk Effect!

Do you think this is voodoo, satanic, or magic? Or do you think our brains are taking the conflicting information from the video and audio and giving it one sensible storyline? We do this sort of thing all the time.

Another brain activity is to take everything I do and perceive and turn it into a coherent narrative – it’s my experience of self. I think this is a magnificent occurrence. A universe generates me and I observe. I look in a mirror. Holy crap. Stop looking at me like that!
