Alyssa talking backwards

Res ipsa loquitur — no matter which way you say it.

And yet we wonder: Are all of us capable of things like this but unable to access the pathways, or is there some rare quirk of neurological wiring specific to Alyssa?

If pressed, I'd say flip a coin.

We haven't even begun to understand the brain and its functions, much less dream of its untapped capabilities.

I listened to the video in reverse. Only a couple of the words sounded correct to me. So I'm not sure what's she's actually saying. Maybe she's pronouncing the word as if it were spelled backwards, and not actually reversing the original pronunciation?

I used to read books to my son, while holding them upside down. It became surprisingly easy after just a few minutes. He found it fun at first, then for some reason, started to hate it and refused to have me read that way anymore.

We are both visual learners, and perhaps his undeveloped brain couldn't cope with the upside down letters like mine could.

I'll have to ask him about it.

My friend writes his birthday greeting in reverse image, so that the recipient must hold the card up to a mirror to read it.
