2 days ago we had our final rights at one of my orgs. We were blindfolded were and asked to do certain tasks for about 6 hours (until around 3 in the morning).
It was fun, boring, irritating, tiring and rewarding all at the same time. Some cried and got mad. But in the end, everyone was suprprised, hungry, sleepy and glad.
After the FR, I experienced something very interesting. All my memories of it are as if I wasn't blindfolded at all. When I try to recall a specific event, It feels like I've seen it before. It's kind of like the feeling you get when you can't distinguish between a dream and a memory. I raced back to one of the rooms and tried to see how it really looks like - It's not as good as what I had in mind. This made me think about how creative the human mind is.
Now it hurts when I try to open my eyes while holding my eyelids down. My blindfold's probably too tight.

Yep, when you are blindfolded, your mind forms a vision to help compensate. Just like when someone describes themselves to you on the phone. Your mind decides what that person may look like.
