      Second thought experiment

      sloth's mistreated child lives in a box. He is fourty-twelve years old. He has lived in this box since the moment he was born. This box is painted black. Scotch taped to the side of this box there is a flat screen television. On this flat screen television, various television programs, movies, and news programs are played...
      backwards.

      If I let him out of his box today, will the world make sense to him? How would viewing fourty-twelve years of reversed reality affect his perception?

      What do you think?
      ---o--- my DCs say I'm dreamy.

      After so much neglect, the brain would remain considerably small making it almost impossible to learn new things. It would probably be driven insane, like catatonic as well.

      It would most certainly be a failed mind.

      We have a much more pressing matter at hand: what is fourty-twelve?

      No, the correct answer is he would have died of malnutrition.

      His food situation is not stated, and since he is fourty-twelve we have to assume that he has been fed somehow. The size of the box is not stated either. Right?

      Does the world make sense to someone who has lived a normal life outside of a black box?
      To answer the question, no they would want to return to the black box most likely.

      Do you mean from a cultural standpoint or from a scientific standpoint? Either way no, you can't really understand something on any level of depth just from watching it on tv. It might be able to provide some basis on which he could slowly adjust to living in society.

      Wait, I just noticed the backwords part, ummm what was the point of this thread, attention whoring?

      Plenty of normal people are delusional and disconected from reality, how would you expect this guy to do?
      157 is a prime number. The next prime is 163 and the previous prime is 151, which with 157 form a sexy prime triplet. Taking the arithmetic mean of those primes yields 157, thus it is a balanced prime.
