Ever walk into a room and forget why you're there?
What about revolving doors?
Sounds like a problem in loading. Should have been addressed in the beta.
Even deities have this error, it seems. (Portal of plenary indulgence. See also: "Dogma" )
Is there a specified width the doors should have to counter this issue? Should we now live without doors, exiting out houses using windows? Does standing in the doorframe cause a brain buffer overflow?
We will never know, because there is no application for this discovery and I assume it will not be further investigated.
Probably they should make more useful test that this.
wish it was just doors that make me forget things.
i always forget something from even seconds ago, sometimes i start to do something or go somewhere then i'd stop and think "what was it that i was going to do?"
It's a new insight on how our brains process and store information. It seems that going from one room to another triggers the same process that sleep does, where the brain filters the short term memory, commits important stuff to longer-term memory and gets rid of what it deems unimportant. Doors do that on a smaller scale. We used to think that this process was ongoing and continuous while we are awake, but it appears some things trigger a more rapid (and almost instant) response.
The next step is to define "room" and "door" from the brain's perspective, and find out what other transitions trigger the same process. If we think of the other room as a new surrounding or a new situation, then that means our brain does a soft reboot every time it encounters a new situation, probably in order to clear up resources. Finding out what it considers a new situation would help understand how the brain works.
That... well that certainly explains a lot.
Makes sense to me.
Unfortunately as a canine, I shall now bark at doors and keep you up all night because I think they are a threat.
I think I just need to live in a single, giant room then.
But what if I need to go outside?
Maybe I'll just be homeless
Just wondering: What if you were to go through a door with your eyes closed? My point is that, if they visually don't acknowledge crossing a door, would the results change?
Could also use transport tubes. =D
If it's your own home you'd still know you're going from one room to another.
I could be wrong, but I think it's more of being in a new room than actually walking through the door. I feel like because your environment changes, you thought process/memory changes.
Like I said, I could be completely wrong.
Time for teleportation to come in existence in the real world, it would prevent this altogether.
