Check out this amazing audio illusion that demonstrates one of the human brain’s awesome abilities. Jayatri Das, chief bioscientist at the Franklin Institute, first plays a short audio clip that’s been digitally altered so that it sounds like utter gibberish to our ears. Even knowing what you’re hearing, “The Constitution Center is at the next stop.”, doesn’t help at all. Next she plays the unaltered clip, which is clearly a woman’s voice speaking perfectly normally. Then Das plays the gibberish version again. And that’s when something incredible happens.

Now that your brain knows the words, it can’t help but hear them despite the heavy distortion.

"The point is: When our brains know what to expect to hear, they do, even if, in reality, it is impossible. Not one person could decipher that clip without knowing what they were hearing, but with the prompt, it’s impossible not to hear the message in the jibberish.”

The brain is awesome. And, of course, so is science.

moving into half of a huge place (even half is huge- 6bed, 2.5 bath, 3 floors) that needs lots and lots of TLC, but for such a big n beautiful home with a bunch of that old-time character, we’ll put the work in 😊

As children we’re taught the process of a caterpillar turning into a butterfly, and the story normally goes along the lines of a hungry caterpillar eats and eats until it can eat no longer, then it hangs upside down and forms a chrysalis, from which a beautiful butterfly emerges.
But what actually happens inside the cocoon?
It’s actually quite surprising, the caterpillar does not merely change its body a bit and grow wings, no… It dissolves. Almost entirely. The caterpillar excretes an enzyme which decomposes all the tissues and fibres into basic organic material, leaving only a few ‘cell disks.’
These cell disks comprise all the different types of cells in an adult butterfly - its eyes, legs, wings, etc. The caterpillar is actually born with them but they just remain dormant until metamorphosis. 
Once all the caterpillars cells have been decomposed the adult cell disks then start to grow, using the organic materials left over, eventually forming the butterfly that emerges a few days later.
