The flies And the Mosquitoes It is usually very annoying, especially at bedtime. Almost all of us get sleepless because of this the animals, Which tends to bother us at the worst of times.
Although they are fragile insects, they are very persistent and above all difficult to reach with a fly paddle or, already desperate, in the palm of the hand.
Because of flies s Mosquitoes Are they difficult to catch? Science has an answer to this question and here we present it to you.
Flies see the world in slow motion
The reason flies and mosquitoes are so elusive is that they do not see the world the way you or I do. They, as if they were characters from the Matrix, see everything in slow motion.
Thus, the size of the animals largely determines the kind of temporal perception they will have in front of the world. This means that flies live in a world where time passes in “slow motion”.
Now, how do we know what is going on in A.’s brain Moscow? It’s all thanks to something called the “flash fusion critical frequency,” which is basically the ability of a Animal To detect different flashes of flashing light before they appear to merge.
In other words, it’s similar to what happens in cinema, where 24fps projection gives us the illusion of movement.
And since flies have a higher critical blink fusion frequency (4 times higher than humans), they have the ability to see more images in a short period of time, making them able to respond faster, just as if they were seeing the world in slow motion.
Children also see the world at a slower rate
Not only does the Triniy College study help us understand flies, but it can also explain why days are so long in childhood, and so fast in adulthood.
Andrew JacksonHe, who was also part of the study, believes that the frequency of flicker fusion also changes with age, which is why children tend to perceive time differently, but it will take another experiment to prove this.
For now, the next time you try to kill a MoscowRemember this is Neo and you are Agent Smith.
