Dutch scientists more than a year working on an ambitious project, trying using the sounds and smells to recreate the moment of death of famous people. To do so, according to scientists, you can use the right combination of sounds and smells that have been in place since the death of a man at the time of his death.
The process of recreating the events of the past days is quite simple. Scientists create a mixture of different smells, putting special ingredients in a small vial. Anyone who wants to “dive” in the past, must inhale this substance. The process should be accompanied by listening to audio recordings. The sound is also chosen not by chance, as a rule – it sounds environment, which was on the site of death.
The hardest thing, scientists have admitted, was to pick and mix the desired odors so that when inhaled by man, they are not mixed in is not clear aromatic mass. The technological process of creating suspensions are not less complex than the process of creating perfumes. Pick up sounds – it was much easier, but to relate the sound and smell of it was also not easy, researchers have complained.
At the moment, scientists were able to create a few suspensions. One of these “tells” about the death of John F. Kennedy in 1963, which, as you know, was the 35th President of the United States. The leader of the state, was shot dead by a sniper during a public event. Another phylactery can tell you about the death of Princess Diana, which died in 1997 in a car accident. In addition there is the phylacteries with the “history” of the singer Whitney Houston and Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, who passed away in 2012 and 2011, respectively.
All phylacteries are presented in a special exhibition, which will be expanded in the future. For a better understanding of the whole process of “reconstruction” should be added that to create the smell of death of John F. Kennedy, scientists have used his blood and the spirits of his wife – Jacqueline Kennedy. Scientists also expect that in the future there will be such exhibitions throughout Europe.
