Anosmia. A temporary or permanent inability to perceive odors.
For example: When you enter a restaurant you can smell all the food. But half way your meal you are no longer aware of all the smells.
This phenomenon is called neutral adaptation. So if this can happen with smells and odors. It seems very likely also to be possible with the input we, humans, receive every day from the way other people act and make decisions, social media and news reports. We keep hearing and seeing the same things over and over… and over again.Â We become numb. So might this be one of the reasons people like me donâ€™t seem to care about the world and my own life anymore.
Has my brain changed so much..?
