    And the characteristics look like geometric Tetris shapes?

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    The Tetris Effect is a pretty interesting phenomenon, and I feel like there’s some unutilized practical applications to it. It’s basically a distilled training for pattern recognition.

    There is an alternate theory now that the Pharaoh was buried in the bottom chamber, not the so called King’s Chamber. His soul then ascended through the higher chambers and up to the now missing very top of the Great Pyramid.

    There is also a pareidolia effect, in which someone claims to see faces or other patterns that don’t really exist. This may explain some of the belief in ghosts.

    Cannibals who eat human brains can suffer deadly brain diseases themselves.

    So Zombies eat Brains eh? Then it’s no wonder they don’t go to Washington D.C. because they’d starve!

    Vera Fischer was incredibly hot until a very advanced age. Late 50s, maybe early 60s. She’s 71 now. She had the best run out of everyone.

    And most brains are in a similarly ‘vegetative’ state.

    I wouldn’t know about human brains, but lamb brains in brown butter is a very tasty dish. I had it a few times in my youth, when I was treated to lunch in an upscale French restaurant. I don’t even know if the restaurant still exists.

    There are unexplored tunnels all over that area. I just read an article about passageways found under the Great Sphinx…

    Okay,here’s a joke.Happened in the middle 1960’s around the time of “the Six-Day War”.

    In Las Vegas,Frank Sinatra threw a tantrum when his credit was cut off.He got into a loud argument with a casino executive named Cohen—-and Sinatra got his front teeth rearranged.

    The joke was soon all over Nevada that “Sinatra should have known better than to fight a Jew in the desert!”

    They have known about the tunnels in the Great Pyramid for quite some time. The street signs were helpful clues

    Hopefully not the mushy, soft runny version of tofu.

    And in some cases, having tofu inside their skulls would be a marked improvement.

    Believe it or not, many brains are about as productive as tofu.

    An earworm’s a song that gets stuck in your head.

    At times I develop an eyeworm instead.

    I don’t mean the kind that biologists know,

    Just visual patterns that don’t swiftly go.

    Perhaps you don’t know what I’m talking about.

    Spend hours on Tetris and then you’ll find out.

    must be this they’re talking about…The Big Void

    In 2017, scientists from the ScanPyramids project discovered a large cavity above the Grand Gallery using muon radiography, which they called the “ScanPyramids Big Void”. A research team, under the supervision of Professor Morishima Kunihiro at Nagoya University, used special nuclear emulsion detectors.166167 Its length is at least 30 metres (98 ft) and its cross-section is similar to that of the Grand Gallery. Its existence was confirmed by independent detection with three different technologies: nuclear emulsion films, scintillator hodoscopes, and gas detectors.168169 The purpose of the cavity is unknown and it is not accessible. Zahi Hawass speculates it may have been a gap used in the construction of the Grand Gallery,170 but the Japanese research team state that the void is completely different from previously identified construction spaces.171 [wikipedia]

    I’ll bet they’ll find a mummified Jimmy Hoffa in that unexplored void.

    I’ve never experienced the Tetris effect. I don’t stay focused on any one thing for very long. I look around a lot, even if I’m reading. Maybe that trait is a result of being the oldest of 9 kids and having to keep track of all the younger siblings when babysitting, lol.
