Limbic Consonance - Quarantine Postcard
"Human beings connect so easily, it's as if we share the same brains. Limbic consonance, as it's called, is our ability to attune to one anothers emotional states. The brain states of mothers and their babies mirror each other; you can see this in an MRI scan. Limbic consonance is the little-known process through which the mood of a room changes when a happy or nervous person walks in, or the way a person listening to a story acquires the same brain state as the storyteller. Multiple nervous systems sync and respond together, as if they were one thing."
