Humans are Weird- Ignoring Pain
I hit my knee against a table and it hurt like hell, but I was in a hurry so I just rubbed it off you know. While I was on my way to the beach, everyone was looking at me *btw I was panicking cause I thought I had something on my face* When I got to the beach where my friend was waiting for me, she told me my knee was bleeding *I was actually pleased it was that and not that I had something on my face lol*
- Isn’t horrible when you hit your hip with the table? Or Oh, the pinky toe. That is a suffering which I don’t wish upon ANYONE.
I just can’t believe that I DIDN’T NOTICE, and then it got me thinking, how humans can ignore pain. Like it must be a survival trait we developed through our existence to survive in extreme cases.
Just imagine aliens being like HOW THE HELL DID YOU NOT NOTICE YOU WERE BLEEDING!? and I can’t stop laughing.
Or worse, imagine they could feel your pain in a more intense way since some of us if not most have developed to feel less pain.
He felt it. The sharp pain lanced through his head and colorful spots flashed in front of his four eyes. The pain spread through his body, feeling a wave of agony. Then he saw the Human.
She was biting her lips, making it look she was trying to keep a cry out. Taking a closer look, she had a nasty cut on her ankle. She shrugged it off and continued to shuffle past the crew. Terric would think she would head to the medical room, but instead she was heading the opposite direction. -She would have to take care of it before it was too late that they would have to cut it off…or even worse..that she could die- *he thought*
“Yes, Terr?” she answered him.
“Why aren’t you heading to get medical attention?” he said concerned for her.
Human-Sasha looked very confused, as if she had no idea what Terric meant. She had to know, right?
“You’re bleeding!” he cried out. Scared for her survival.
“Oh shit, I didn’t notice.” she mumbled, looking at her ankle.
“You didn’t notice..? But didn’t it hurt?”
“Oh it did. But I guess..how would you say it….we humans can ignore pain in some cases if our mind is somewhere else.”
“I wasn’t aware humans had superpowers…” he said in a very serious manner.
Human-Sarah ‘laughed’ out loud, making it look she was choking. Terric would never understand how that could show amusement in their kind.
“No”-she blurted out while laughing- “I assume humans have developed over the years to withhold pain in extreme cases, to guarantee our survival.”
Terric was horrified. He would have to update the human manual.
