“Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.”
Today’s quote appears on every single side mirror attached to cars. Rarely, if ever, do people think about it apart from when they’re driving.
But what if you had no choice but to think about it often? What if you started experiencing false visual perceptions where everyday objects such as car keys, coffee tables, beds, couches all started to appear bigger or smaller than they really are? And what if it happened on a daily basis?
In my last article, I talked about derealization-depersonalization disorder in which everything around you becomes like a dream or a fog. (You can read that article by clicking here).
Similarly, there’s a condition known as Alice In Wonderland Syndrome in which someone experiences conditions described in the second paragraph of this article.
How and why does it start? What exactly does it do to your everyday perception? How long does it last and can it be treated?
Tune in tomorrow for a researched and detailed article on Alice In Wonderland Syndrome.
