People in general have more than the 5-senses-plus-ESPN mantra we recognise. Here are 2 examples: you can feel heat emanating off things without touching them. You always know where your hand is in relation to your body, even if your eyes are closed.
For this week’s mental exercise, close your eyes and try hitting yourself in the face without knowing it’s coming. That’s right, make a fist or an open slappy hand and ambush your own face.
In order to achieve this, you may need to disengage your conscious mind in favour of your subconscious, which would only be too delighted to make you hit yourself in the face. Your subconscious hates you, which explains all those dreams you keep having.
There is no prize for winning, except the knowledge that you’ve done something that’s theoretically impossible. Go you.
