    It scared the living shit out of me when they suddenly coughed in the temporal induction part. I wasn’t expecting it and it is 1:36 am for me so I’m tired. That jumpscared me😂 (edit: “jumpscared” instead of “scared)

    Can you give atleast like 5 seconds when you ask "can you hear it now?" because I couldnt listen to the audio clearly with your people talking immediately.

    The first one is totally fake. All star was intentionally done like that because i dont know the lyrics but i know a remix of the song which has totally different lyrics but same flow and beat.

    What would be really astonishing and profound it could be to prove with this experiments and some more investigation that all of our perceptions at a brain level are illusions... What do you think about this?

    I know all-star, but didn't hear voices, just the melody.
    And I didn't hear the thud with the jumping cell tower either....
    Anyone with me? I also heard both lani and laurel, back and forth randomly, and definitely when looking at a certain word as its being played....
    Am I crazy? Yes, but not necessarily because of this...

    If you have mental and auditory capacity, and you play the speeding up rhythm long enough, you'll be able to catch the 'moment' the previous tone slows down disappear.
