That is rather fascinating. So it must be like that for all matter, then. *amazed by science*

Holy shit. So basically you only feel something until that something is long gone. Since we only we only feel a fraction of that something, imagine what the real deal would feel like.

I feel like even if we felt the full force of everything, the brain would just filter a lot of that out. not sure though because i haven't studied the biological aspects of the brain in relation to the senses yet so...yeah

This applies to emotions too. I tend to not fully realize what I have until it's gone. Like a good game that I sold. Or an ex girlfriend.

ooh so this is what Gildragon was planning to do in FI haha

Anyway, I was pretty amazed; I actually wasn't expecting the slinky to behave that way. Nice find.

Time-lapse videos, always nice. They can give a great deal of insight, such as in this case.
