The blog of Xeno, a slightly mad scientist
Yesterday, I was relaxing on the couch and, I kid you not, my stomach asked me a question. It was clear as day and I found it funny and startling. Then a few seconds later, the next sound it made, was my name! It was like something out of a Harry Potter movie.
All stomach sounds that followed were normal and at no other time in my life have my stomach sounds seemed to speak.
Of course, my rational mind realizes that this must be a case of audio pareidolia, wrongly interpreting a vague stimulus as something meaningful.
Based on the question, “Are you lonely?” I decided to go that night to see the Lone Ranger (2013) with Johnny Depp as Tonto.
My fiance reminded me that the human stomach has a mind of its own with five times more nerve cells than a bird brain (100 million neurons). ‘The “gut brain,” formally known as the enteric nervous system, is made up of some 500 million nerve cells, as many as there are in a cat’s brain.’ – wsj
Have you ever heard your stomach gurgles produce actual words or an actual sentence?
I’ll add this to my list of several paranormal events which have occurred in my current home: the key falling by itself (after a car accident death), a dish soap bottle moving by itself, and my blender starting by itself.
