It's called shock
It's basically repressed memories and your brain covering up a traumatic event.

Granted, a lot of people would notice it but still, it happens.
The brain is the most powerful thing in the universe.

my dad back when i was a kid, got his thumb torn off by a machine at his work, he didnt even notice till 10 mins later when a co-worker saw it and fainted
User avatar #228 to #1 - limb (10/14/2013) [-]
...your brain covering up traumatic memories wut? was probably just adrenaline i know i got hit in the eye with spike knuckles and didnt even think i was hurt until it was swollen shut and then i only thought it was just swollen not that my face was laid wide open until my mom flipped **** when i walked in the house (This happened during a mugging also.)
User avatar #294 to #228 - darksideofthebeast (10/14/2013) [-]
Adrenaline only happens if you are aware of your danger.

If you keep going on and don't notice it, it is considered shock and it is exactly what I said.
User avatar #345 to #294 - limb (10/14/2013) [-]
lets just have a ******* internet battle then.

shock : an acute medical condition associated with a fall in blood pressure, caused by such events as loss of blood, severe burns, bacterial infection, allergic reaction, or sudden emotional stress, and marked by cold, pallid skin, irregular breathing, rapid pulse, and dilated pupils.

^ shock not associated with memory loss

User avatar #346 to #345 - darksideofthebeast (10/14/2013) [-]
Get out of here.

I'm not talking about the medical condition 'Shock' I am talking about mental shock.

You're actually so mad you thumbed down all my replies...
You're pathetic.
User avatar #352 to #351 - limb (10/14/2013) [-]
Don't even, you thumbed me down first I was retaliating.
User avatar #353 to #352 - darksideofthebeast (10/14/2013) [-]
Because I checked who thumbed down my reply to the faggy comment and surprise, surprise... It was you.
User avatar #354 to #353 - limb (10/14/2013) [-]
We've already established that I thumbed you down, I even admitted to it above what are you trying to accomplish by repeating facts. Have another red thumb.
User avatar #355 to #354 - darksideofthebeast (10/14/2013) [-]
Look at how upset you are getting.

I feel bad for your family, if you're this mad at someone over the internet I couldn't imagine seeing you in real life.
User avatar #356 to #355 - limb (10/14/2013) [-]
I think you're pathetic as well as myself because we're both arguing on the internet about something that doesn't matter. So lets call it quits. You can even have the last comment. Good day sir.

Why did you have to say something as faggy as "the brain is the most powerfull thing in the universe"
User avatar #187 to #151 - darksideofthebeast (10/14/2013) [-]
Well I guess this faggy guy got 85 thumbs for saying that.

And how is that "Faggy" I just stated the truth.
#361 to #187 - ylegrand (10/15/2013) [-]
I almost thumbed your comment up.
Because it was an awesome peace of knowledge.
But then you had to come up with some sentimental ******** like "hurr brain powerfull in universe, humanity wlalalala"

seriously? Is it more powerfull than a supernova?
User avatar #362 to #361 - darksideofthebeast (10/15/2013) [-]
Yes it is.
Like I have stated before, your brain makes your reality what it is.
Therefore there is no reality unless you're there to perceive it.
#363 to #362 - ylegrand (10/15/2013) [-]
Ah, the old "does a getting knocked over in the woods make a sound if no one is there to here it?" question.

This is a very egocentric way of viewing reality. As if it only resists to be defined by us.

My brain creates a perception of reality. This perception (the noise I hear) will not exist if my brain isn't there. However reality (the sound waves travelling trhough the air) will continue to exist regardess of human observers.

The brain is but a chemical network, computing, fooling itself of it's own free will.

And we don't know enough of the universe to state that the human brain is the most powerfull thing around.

And the brain's ability to fool it's own mechanisms (shock) doesn't proove itself to be powerfull.
User avatar #365 to #363 - darksideofthebeast (10/15/2013) [-]
You don't know what I am saying then.

You can't prove reality exists in any way shape or form.
As ridiculous as it may sound, I could think I am the only human to ever exist and everyone are robots testing me.
And I do believe that life isn't real, it has been basically proven that it is.

Yes, I have also taken the introductory course to philosophy in highschool.

As we all know the brain is the most powerfull thing in the universe ,Except an Apache helicopter. An Apache helicopter has machine guns AND missiles. It is an unbelievably impressive complement of weaponry, an absolute death machine.

The brain is the most poweful thing in the human universe.

There's still so much we dont know about the universe around us, and just think about the epic connections in the universe that makes it possible to be life on earth!

Adrenaline can also cover up the feeling of pain from a broken bone for hours.
User avatar #127 to #101 - darksideofthebeast (10/13/2013) [-]
Adrenaline usually kicks in when you are aware of the danger.
She wasn't, she clearly had repressed memories about it.

If you throw brain at apache it'll get brain juice on windshield and blind pilot, making crash.

I'm pretty certain dying stars are the most powerful things in the universe.
User avatar #42 to #16 - darksideofthebeast (10/13/2013) [-]
With nothing to observe this star it has never existed.

Therefore the brain is the reality of everything.
User avatar #94 to #42 - quadrilateral (10/13/2013) [-]
but the star exists, whether or not we do. To think that everything only exists for us to see it is incredibly arrogant.
User avatar #105 to #94 - newforomador (10/13/2013) [-]
I believe he is going along with the phrase "If a tree falls and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" Because nobody was there to hear it or in this case, see the star(s) than we can't know that it made a sound, and if there were no humans at all to observe things, you could argue that they never existed. People still argue that things don't exist, even if it is an accepted theory. And there is no way that you can 100% prove that it does exist, without witnessing it yourself.
#325 to #105 - erooo (10/14/2013) [-]
Cause and effect guys, if a tree falls it makes a sound. Just because there were noone to observe it doesnt mean it didnt happen (or in this cause didnt make a sound). The observer does not influence the cause or the effect.

Or i might have fallen out of the discussion
User avatar #133 to #105 - rosette **User deleted account** (10/13/2013) [-]
There is no way to 100% prove anything. Even witnessing it is unreliable.
User avatar #143 to #133 - newforomador (10/13/2013) [-]
Yes, but if enough people witness it than it most likely exists, although you're right, it would still be somewhere around 99.9 cont. I have never seen an elephant, except on TV and on the Internet, yet I know they exist. The only example of this I can think of where it isn't true, is with things like cryptids, and that is because none of the witnesses are/have definitive proof. Either way, that just proves my point further.
User avatar #209 to #143 - darkforces ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
Watch this video, it does a pretty okay job of explaining what he's trying to say, I think, if you're still having trouble understanding. Is Anything Real?

Ahh **** dude, vsauce spree, watched like 15 videos, that's your mark, if you hadn't been here, I wouldn't have watched those videos.
User avatar #359 to #358 - darkforces ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
It's always nice when you start one of those sprees. The first time I watched vsauce I watched like 20-30 videos in a row. It was great.
User avatar #212 to #209 - newforomador (10/14/2013) [-]
I know what he's talking about, it's just that things can be proven, just from natural assumption. It's just that things can never be proven to be 100% true.
User avatar #213 to #212 - darkforces ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
Well that's the thing. You're using the word 'proven' which is to demonstrate truth, something that we know is completely true. You can't say that something is approximately proven because that contradicts the definition of the word 'prove'. I have almost no idea what I'm talking about though since I have a little to no amount of knowledge on this subject.
User avatar #215 to #213 - newforomador (10/14/2013) [-]
Okay, in that case, 'as proven as anything can possibly be'
User avatar #218 to #215 - darkforces ONLINE (10/14/2013) [-]
Hmm, that might work, but again, I can't give you an actual answer since I have no actual knowledge on the subject. It's fun to think about and argue about though, makes you think.
User avatar #144 to #143 - rosette **User deleted account** (10/13/2013) [-]
What we know is limited to our own sensory perception. No matter how many people witness something, what is seen is seen only by humans. We can never experience or know anything definitively, so we cannot prove anything definitively. I get your point but I'm just saying, there is no such thing as "definitive proof".
User avatar #138 to #133 - darksideofthebeast (10/13/2013) [-]
That is very true.
