The new extraordinary research asserts that human brains are virtually interconnected like Wi-Fi and enables people to know more information about others than they are aware of. According to the researchers from the University of Sheffield, this interconnections has a vital part in a particular way of people while communicating with others, as brains try to catch signals from others.
Researchers claim that this may explain the theory about human ‘gut feeling’ sand intuitions while feeling bad about someone but can’t point out it. The study may also reveal that why people ignore eye contact in crowd, because the information would get overloaded in brains.
Professor Digby John Howard Tantam described it as ‘Interbrain’ and refers to direct connection between all the brains. He hopes that this may also explain how people pulled into cults or connected while seating at concerts or football games. The theory has been described in the book titled as ‘The Interbrain’ authored by Digby Tantam.
Tantum said that, “It is based on the direct connection between our brains and other people’s and between their brain and ours. I call this the interbrain. Being in crowd mode may also make us experience what it would be like to transcend out perspective, our time, our place and our capacity, to feel for a moment, like a driving being.
He added, “Emotional contagion occurs at the speed of light, not the speed of electronic transmission. Face-to-face visual input is accompanied by sound, by gesture, by the smell of sweat, by the possibility of touch, and by a connect.”
