Ever stood at the edge of a precipice and felt the urge to jump, to freely leap into the abyss? Later as you back up, uncertainty grips you as you wonder whatever could cause such cataclysmic thoughts within you. This is apparently a rather common phenomenon that occurs with most people.
The French have a term for it called Lappel du vide. It literally translates to the call of the void. Analysts have theorised that this might be caused by certain perceptual senses being stronger than others. While looking down at the vast distance between the ground and yourself, the warning systems are triggered which tell you youre in danger. It then dawns upon you that your chances of falling are relatively low as there are protective barriers all around you. Then your mind tries explaining your initial panic by convincing you that you were actually on the verge of jumping. Studies have shown that this phenomenon is not necessarily related to being suicidal or self-destructive.
So now theres no need to have an existential crisis as you contemplate your sanity, the next time youre at a high place. Just remember, its merely your brain misinterpreting common safety signals.
