Think how it would feel if you were suddenly removed from this beautiful world and imprisoned in a dark cave for 40 days. The same has been done in France with 15 people. These people were kept in a dark cave for 40 days, completely out of the world, for a scientific experiment. During this time people had neither a mobile phone nor any electronic gadget. Not only this, these people do not know the time, so even the clock was not given. During captivity, these people used the biological clock to sleep, get up and eat. 8 men and 7 women participated in this campaign. Their experiment was completed on 22 April, after which they came out of that huge cave.
Came out with smiling faces for 40 days
When these people came out of Lombrivées cave in France 40 days later, these volunteers had a smile on their faces. When these people came out after being in the dark for so long, they were given special glasses for eye protection. Scientists are afraid that after coming in the light in the dark, sun and strong light may not affect their eyes. While staying in this dark and moist cave, the team of scientists also monitored the health of all the participants. With the help of sensors, scientists monitored the activities of the volunteers like sleep patterns, lifestyle, social behavior.
Scientists in France and Switzerland did this experiment
An experiment named Deep Time Project was done by scientists from France and Switzerland. The temperature of this cave was around 10 degrees centigrade, while the humidity was around 100 percent. These volunteers spent 40 days in the dark cave without any light. 33-year-old Marina Lannon, who took part in the expedition, said she was in no hurry to do any work in the cave. He said that if I wanted, I could stay in that dark cave for a few more days. He said that after a long time today I have felt the rustle of the wind on my body. Due to being away from the smartphone for so many days, they do not see any major impact.
This was the aim of the experiment
Scientists said that the purpose of this experiment was to study changes in people’s living conditions and to research adaptation. These scientists wanted to investigate what effect these changes have on the human body. All these people were in the habit of living in the urban lifestyle, in such a situation, by suddenly being kept in a dark cave for 40 days and 40 nights, there has been some effect on the body. Most of the participants were complaining of lack of sleep. When they came out of the cave, they did not even know that while living in this cave, they have spent 40 days and 40 nights. It was also seen that without mobile phones and time, how does it affect their health.
The volunteer was involved in the experiment without taking money
All these volunteers were aged between 27 and 50 years. Many of them were biologists, jewelers and teachers teaching mathematics. The great thing is that these people did not take any money to join the experiment. The team organizing this experiment told that they have spent about eight and a half crore rupees for this project.
