Mind Blown

take a moment to realize you
have never seen your face in
person, just reflections and
pictures
some scientists agree that if you
saw a clone of yourself, you
wouldn' t recognise it as you,
because our idea of what we look
like is so different from what we
actually look like

I want to know who those scientists are, because either they're stupid scientists or someone made that up

Also, what does science have to do with recognizing your own appearance????

Isn't that more like, psychology? I guess, maybe

Psychology is a science.... Don't make me kill you...

and also, hasn't anyone seen "Back to the future 2"? The part when Marty's girlfriend accidentally sees the future version of herself, and then they both exclaimed "I'm old/young!"

I know it's fiction, but that's how i think it is

You also see yourself 5 times uglier than you actually are

******** .

You'd just be really weirded out because you'd be looking at the opposite of what you're usually used to seeing in the mirror.

Most people don't realize that how you look in the mirror is not how you look in real life. Since your face isn't symmetrical, what you expect to be on the right side of your face turns out to be on the left and vice versa.

So theres a mismatch with what you remember in your head and what you actually see. But you'd still know its you...

However, I do believe that you would not recognize yourself from just the back!

Also, I've recognised myself in videos.
And videos aren't mirrored.

Some Scientists. Namely my imaginary friends named scientist.

I think I'd be skeptical because who the 						****					 expects to see a clone of themselves at random?

You'd have to be pretty blind and stupid to not recognize yourself. If you can identify a much younger version of you in a picture, then you sure as hell can recognize a current copy of you

@Everyone, I believe the post means we usually only see our self reversed, so if we so an exact duplicate it would be backwards. I don't know though, I'm just a dog.

saw* dang.

"Some scientists" seems fishy as **** .

So, identical twins.... how do their heads not explode?

What if we really all look the same but see each other differently?

Some scientists agree that OP does enjoy cock on a regular basis and on weekend nights may even party in gay bars for massive orgies.
#214 - anonymous (05/17/2013) [-]
this is actually ******** because of a known phenomenon present in species with self-awareness to recognise its own reflection as a reflection. that being said even if a person has never seen their own reflection in the past, they still have enough intuitive knowledge of our own appearance (based off of frequent touching of the face and various nerves and muscles throughout the face) to recognise someone who is identical to ourselves. this is why identical twins know they look the same without having to look into a mirror to remind themselves.
#213 - neznanc (05/17/2013) [-]
so... what if you see yourself on a video?
User avatar #212 - threadcreator (05/17/2013) [-]
Why don't we see other things differently? Or am I just not understanding it.
#210 - kiboz (05/17/2013) [-]
Well, technically, we only see the photons bouncing off from a person when we see it, so the mirror reflexion is just them bouncing off of us to the mirror and then back to our eyes, so it's pretty much the same.

1. i can see my nose, ergo i can see my face.

2. of course i wouldnt recognize the clone as myself, because the clone is a younger copy of me, so it would look different than i do now. it be like having a younger twin.
