Your Reality Is Not Real (nor is mine): Part II

If you watched Part I, you might like to know how it was done…
Watch this video to find out.

It’s called the McGurk effect and it’s a fascinating look at how a visual suggestion can easily overrule our senses and make us hear something that isn’t there.

  1. The McGurk effect. It was interesting Keith. At first I did not follow your instructions and left my eyes totally open. Then I had a bright idea — FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS! I did then hear vase and bass. Lane Pierce who used to be with APU wrote a few paragraphs about the senses and exactly was 7 +/-2 really means. We are predominately Visual and that uses up a very large part. Thanks for this fun experience.

    Stay well!

  2. Dear Keith, Even though I listened to part 2 before part 1. I listened to part 1 really hard and still thought I heard you say the word vase several times. I really want to thank you for teaching me and others some of the different points of hypnosis. THANK YOU! Again. Sincerely, Craig

  3. Thanks Craig!

    Visual processing does take up a large amount of our brain. I am not sure what that means, if anything, in terms of which sense might take precedence when there’s conflicting information available.

  4. Keith, — REVISED —

    I knew there was Audio Edit(s); being in Broadcasting over 40 years now…. However I’m quite certain you said “FACE”. Looking at an audio spectrum analysis of the audio track, it became somewhat apparent… IF you DID indeed say “Bass” I can’t see the “B” plosive, nor hear it except on the FIRST word…… Maybe it was the “WAY” you said “Bass” ???

    Regardless; an AMAZING video that WORKED on me the first two times I watched it !!!!

    Keep up the GREAT Work !!!!

  5. You have presented a brilliant example of how expectations are created by visual cues. If the original suggestion was given in the reverse order with eyes closed first, i.e. you offered the auditory signal prior to the visual one, it may not have been as effective. Perhaps you could test this variation on another audience and let us know.

  6. first I ony heared base..and I thought to myself..”.why is he only saying base”…and then suddenly I heared vase..and got into the base-vase thing 🙂

  7. Wow! What an eye-opener! I should say, what an inner-eye opener!

    I am shocked at how my own physical
    eyes deceive me. I am shocked awake, which is exactly what I need!

    Thanks a million!!!

    Sincerely, Rain

    1. Often, the first step in overcoming an obstacle is realizing that one’s perceptions are skewed. This principle provides us with a concrete example we can show folks as to how their perceptions can be misleading.
