Facing the “pool” of life

Psychologists have done such an experiment:

Place the mouse in the center of a pool filled with water. Although the pool is large, it is still within reach of the swimming ability of the mouse.

The psychologist first put a white mouse into the water. After the white mouse fell into the water, there was no horse moving upstream, but instead turned to the circle and made a “squeaky” cry. The mouse is in the orientation, and its rat is a precise azimuth detector. Its sound is transmitted to the edge of the pool, and the sound waves are reflected back and detected by the rat to determine the size of the pool, its location, and the distance from the edge of the pool. After screaming and turning a few laps, he swam in the direction of his choice without hesitation, and soon swam to the shore.

The experiment has not ended yet. The psychologist cut the rat of another mouse and put it in the water. The mouse screamed again, but since the “detector” no longer existed, it could not detect the reflected sound waves. After a few minutes, the exhausted white mouse sank to the bottom and drowned. Regarding the death of the second mouse, the psychologist explained that the rat had to be cut, the mouse could not accurately determine the position, could not see the edge of the pool that was actually close, and thought that he could not swim anyway, so stop Every effort has ended my life on my own.

Psychologists finally concluded that animals are often forced to end their lives when life is completely hopeless. This is called “intentional suicide.” The second mouse was not killed by the need to cut off the rat, but was drowned by the idea of ​​”can’t swim out anyway.”

There is also such an experiment on rats in psychology:

Put the rats in a pool filled with water and see how long they can struggle to survive. The experimental results show that the time spent by the rats is generally maintained for about 8 minutes.

The next experiment was to put a big rat in the same pool. When it struggled for about 5 minutes, put a springboard in the pool that allowed it to climb out of the pool. The white rat was able to live. Come down.

A few days later, the white rat was placed in the same pool, and the miracle appeared: the white mouse could hold on for 24 minutes, which is 3 times the time that can be adhered to under normal circumstances! The miracle created by the rats, the earthquake struck the experimenter, the experiment ended in 24 minutes, and the rats were saved.

The conclusion of psychology is: the general situation of the white rats, because there is no escape experience, can only rely on their own physical strength to struggle to survive, 8 minutes is their limit; and the experience of the escape of the white mouse, but one more The power of the spirit, it believes that at some point, a springboard will save them, which makes it able to break through the limits of life and create a miracle of life. This spiritual power is the power of hope.

You see, because of despair, you will think of suicide; because of hope, you will create a miracle of life.

What we can’t help but watch out is that such things happen not only to animals, but also to people in varying degrees.

On the road of life, everyone may encounter the “pool” that the white rats have encountered, that is, the so-called adversity and predicament. But this is not a desperate situation. There is no desperate situation in this world, only those who are desperate. Everything depends on how you choose: whether you are desperate or hopeful.

More importantly, people are more fortunate than animals, people are the masters of their own destiny, and the springboard to save themselves is in their own hearts. As long as there is hope, there will be a miracle of life.
