It’s 11pm, my wife and I are watching Letterman. Bill Murray is on and we are in heaven. Time for a commercial break. First commercial is a trailer for a horror movie with lots of sharp objects, blood, darkness, freaky music, revenge, and evil. In the attempt to avoid getting nightmares I usually start hunting for the remote in order to turn the channel and my wife closes her eyes. I just hate they they have to play those trailer during a late night comedy program. It did get me thinking though and recently my thoughts were verified. I thought, is it better to close your eyes in that situation and not see what is going on? Is the human imagination capable of recreating worse images then the ones on the screen. At least the ones on the TV are on the TV originated there and not constructed in your mind. Then, isn’t music heard better when your eyes are closed. I found an article on livescience.com (http://www.livescience.com/health/090730-eyes-closed.html) yesterday that confirms this. The human brain is stimulated by music at a greater level when our eyes are closed. That’s it, they even compared it to the brain scans against people that were in a dark room with there eyes open and the closed eye situation is more active. So, next time you are listening to music and not driving, close your eyes for a song or two.
