They say truth is stranger than fiction.And if you ask me, reality more scary from fiction. Watching a horror movie about zombies and monsters will make you yawn, but reconfiguring the same movie to feature deadly bacteria and disease lurking in swimming pools will keep you awake for a week. So for all you pandas out there who want to know about real-life horrors, we’ve prepared the perfect list.
Here are some of the scariest things that scientists have proven to be real, and the kind things sadistic Reddit users have done for us. shareSurprise yourself and have fun reading about these things that sound too crazy. Also, please upvote answers that question whether scientists really need to keep discovering…
It’s kind of like the “orangutan paradox” theory.When we shoot orangutan documentaries, orangutans are unaware of what we are observing, but because they are the most intelligent species in their category, it is possible that aliens are watching us. and we are ignorant like orangutans
Giant squid. The old sailor tale of a kraken wrapping his tentacles around a ship and dragging it out to sea suddenly seems less fictional.
What we thought was a star (or obscure star) 100 years ago is actually an entire galaxy. Who knows who F is or what’s out there?
Earth lived 1 million years ago. And then a million years ago. 100 million years ago.
Even if our civilization miraculously succeeded, lived another 20,000 years, and colonized thousands of planets like sand dunes, it would be nothing. Earth will hardly notice.
We surveyed only 2% of the ocean (the numbers may not be accurate), and the ocean covers 78% of the world.I wonder what’s in it
How big is our galaxy, how many *other* galaxies are there, how far apart they are. When you can actually see what you don’t understand..
aging. I’m happy with death, but the thought of my own body aging, becoming frail, and finally falling apart before the endgame gives me goosebumps.
infinite expansion of the universe. Not only is everything in the universe getting further and further away, but its expansion is accelerating, so that one day in the far future, whatever creatures are looking up from the planet and wondering will be starless sky skies. you will see All galaxies are expanding beyond the cosmic horizon. All worlds are isolated, drifting in endless darkness, with no way of knowing the scale and beauty of their former times.
False vacuum collapse.
Although this is a quantum physics concept, it essentially raises the question that lower energy states may exist, as we do now.
There is no way to confirm otherwise, and due to quantum fluctuations, there is a non-zero chance that the particle will collapse to its “true” lowest energy state at some point.
Depending on how far that ‘true’ vacuum is from the ‘fake’ vacuum, from small changes in the cosmological constant to the cessation of all the fundamental forces we know, namely the complete and The effects range from immediate destruction. Or even the immediate gravitational collapse of the universe.
TL;DR: if the universe quant-blips in a no-no way, go bye bye Thanos snap style
The scariest thing for me is the scientific mapping of human psychology. We know social habits and evolutionary survival instincts that have been handed down from time immemorial. We have extensive knowledge of how to elicit precise responses from the humans under our command. And the scary thing is that companies are using this information to sell us things.
Everything about product design, from the shape to the color palette to the smell, is designed specifically and intricately to hack our brains and evoke the exact specific reactions they want us to have. It has been.
Once you know how human psychology affects advertising, you’ll never look at an ad the same way again.
How easily human perceptions and values can be hacked by tweaking the chemicals here and there.
Now let me explain what I mean. I was her ICU nurse and was on the “front lines” during the worst of the pandemic, first as a nursing home nurse manager and later in the intensive care unit.
The thing is… I can’t really express how horrible this disease is. I’ve seen young, healthy people die and nothing can be done for them. The problem is, no matter how hard you try, without a basic knowledge of intensive care, what the word “critical” actually means. is not able to understand what is meant.
If you don’t know what I mean, let me think about this.
Imagine getting sick and getting worse so quickly that you can’t breathe on your own. You are taken to the ICU, put on full pain meds (so you can sleep and the pain goes away), put on numbing meds (all muscles are completely relaxed including breathing) and have a tube inserted into your lungs. and connected to a breathing machine. And you have all kinds of drugs whose only job is to keep you alive as your body fights off disease with the help of various drugs.
But it’s still not enough and you can’t oxygenate properly. That means upside down on the bed. However, after about 24 hours, it should be put back on its back again. This is because staying in that position for an extended period of time can cause harm. But after 30 minutes of lying on his back, a blood test showed that his breathing had not returned to normal, and he had to lie down again.
Repeat for days. several weeks. Month.
Add to that your family can’t get close to you. If possible, they may be able to see you through a glass door. Also, if your heart crashes (stops), the nursing and medical team can contact you until you dress appropriately. you can’t.
Can you imagine what this is? That’s about 20% of what the word “critical” actually means when talking about COVID.
PS: If you’re a naysayer, or an anti-vaccine activist, etc… STOP. But please don’t. please.
Most people are addicted to technology but have no idea how it works. Instead of making humanity better and more efficient, it’s ruining people’s lives.of course
It’s not the scariest, but it’s a little suspicious so I thought I should add it.
Many governments are increasingly accepting that UFOs (which means Unidentified Flying Objects, not Aliens!) are real. They are detected by many advanced military systems. They have been observed to far outperform our best tech/jets.
Of course, what’s the UFO conversation without bringing in the possibility that extraterrestrials are watching us? Creepy but charming.
Statistically, at least based on Milgram’s research, about two-thirds of people obey authority figures who order them to harm or kill innocent people. And when I ask them why they did that, they give a surprisingly similar answer: “I was just following orders.”
Zombifying fungi like those depicted in games like The Last Of Us exist and are much more likely to be terrifying than the way they appear there.
Fungi of the genus Condyceps like to infect insects by dispersing their spores. After some time, these insects begin to behave erratically. Eventually they try to reach high places like stalks where they lock their legs and die. The fungus then germinates from the body and spreads its spores downwards to infect the animal’s siblings.
The current theory is that the fungus separates the brain from the muscle without even affecting it. This means that the animal dies a slow but somewhat conscious death, infecting more animals of the same species.
Essentially, there is a theory that the reason we don’t see the universe teeming with life is because the likelihood of life is so low. That means that a step in the development of intelligent life is highly unlikely. The Great Filter is that unlikely step. Great his filters could be a thing of the past. So there was an improbable step in the evolution of life on Earth, and we’ve overcome it. Or, here’s the scary part, what if the Great Filter is in the future and all intelligent civilizations are destined to bring about their own destruction?
EDIT: So science hasn’t exactly proven this to be real, but it’s a curious theory nonetheless
Lobsters are virtually immortal and will continue to grow unless they die of disease or are killed by predators.
the sun dies It will explode in 5 billion years and stop supplying energy. Better find a new star to move to by then. The nearest star, Proxima Centauri, is her 4.5 light-years away from Earth, and current technology could reach the neighboring star in a 6,300-year journey.
Toxoplasma gondii. A cat parasite that causes rats to be attracted to cat urine instead of being repelled. It supports risk-taking behavior in exposed humans. How much trouble do you have because of Toxoplasma gondii?
60% of poop is made up of live and dead gut bacteria. These gut bacteria combine to produce more dopamine and serotonin than the brain can produce.The abundance of these neurotransmitters has a profound effect on the brain. Neurotransmitter production is far from the only pathway to the brain.
Fecal transplants used for illness change your diet. Patients who are healthy but who receive transplants from obese individuals are much more likely to become obese. Patients who receive transplants from obese but lean individuals are more likely to be lean.
In a true sense, you can think of yourself as a servant of your gut bacteria.
