Topography of tears😢, using a microscope 🔬 to capture the three different types of tears based on their origin. Beginning with tears of grief and joy, both being psychic tears 😭 triggered by extreme emotions wether positive or negative and these tears contain protein based hormones as well as the neurotransmitter “Leucine enkephalin”, a natural painkiller released when the body is under stress. Basal tears are released in tiny quantities to keep the cornea lubricated (apron. 0.75-1-1 grams over 24 hours).
Reflection tears triggered in response to an irritant lie dust, onion vapours or tear gas. All of these different tears have a variety of biological substances (oil, antibodies and enzymes) suspended in salt water with al of them having their own distinct molecules. Even though the structures seen under the microscope are for the ost part crystallised salt, the circumstances under which the tears dries can lead to radically dissimilar shapes and formations.
Thus two psychic tears with the exact same chemicals can look very different when dried and it all depends on the chemistry, viscosity, the setting, evaporation rate and the setting of the microscope. “Tears are the medium of our most primal language in moments as unrelenting as death, as basic as hunger and as complex as a rite of passage,” she says. “It’s as though each one of our tears carries a microcosm of the collective human experience, like one drop of an ocean.”- Rose-Lynn Fisher.
Insomnia, a type of a sleep diorder where the patient has difficulties in sleeping and or staying asleep 😴 . The following symptoms fall under this disorder :
1. Waking up often during night and not being able to go back to sleep
2. Waking up to early in the morning
3. Feeling tired upon waking.
The two types of insomnias are the primary and secondary insomnias. Primary insomnia☝🏼 is a person with sleeping disorder that has no connection with other health conditions, whilst secondary insomnia is when the sleeping diorder is connected to health conditions such as asthma, depression, cancer, heartburn medication, alcohol etc.
The insomnia can also be short lasting (Acute insomnia), which lasts from one night to a few weeks or long lasting (Chronic insomnia), which at least occurs 3 times a week for a month or longer. Causes of acute insomnia can be significant life stresses such as loss of a loved one, loss of job etc as well as physical or emotional discomfort, environmental factors (noice, light etc), illness and medication. Causes of chronic insomnia can be depression, anxiety, chronic stress and pain/discomfort at nights.
Lichtenberg figure🙄, is a scar formed on a human like a tattoo after they have been struck by lightning. They are formed by the electrical discharge in the lightning and are examples of fractals, appearing on the surface of the interior of insulating materials. The name comes from the German physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg👨🏼🔬who studied them and believed that the shapes might help reveal the nature of positive and negative electric fluids.
In 1777 he built a large electrophorus, generating high voltage static electricity through induction. After discharging a high voltage point to the surface of an insulator, he recorded the resulting radial pattern in fixed dust. He pressed blank sheets of paper onto the patterns, discovering the basic patterns of moden Xerography and the forerunner modern day plasma physics. Lichtenberg only studies the 2-dimensional figures, but today 3D (electrical trees) on and within insulating materials are also studies by voltage researchers.
HISTORY TIME 😉 🔥 Trephination (or trepanning or buss holing), a surgical invention illustrated by drilling a hole into the skull, removing a piece of the bone and exposing the dura matter without damaging the underlying blood vessels, meninges and brain using simple tools. This method goes all the way back to 6500 BCE with the belief of this surgical method to be capable of tresting health problems associated with intracranial diseases, epileptic seizures, migraines and mental disorders by relieving pressure. It was also used as a primitive form of emergency surgery to remove shattered bone pieces in the skull after a head wound to clean the pool of blood formed underneath the skull.
