Lets say you managed to get a burn on your arm at 10,000 degrees, and lived, and on your other arm, got a burn but the heat was 5x hotter. Would you be able to feel the difference? Does our pain threshold plateau at one point?

nerves die at a certain point so no you wouldn't really be able to tell the difference.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

no, im pretty sure you'd die.


Lets keep this hypothetical, shall we?

It would feel exactly the same as the nerve endings would get destroyed at the same temperature which would be a hell of a lot less than 10,000 degrees anyway
#8
I'm pretty sure you wouldnt live with a 10,000 degree burn, and definitely not with a 50,000 degree burn.

Someone doesn't read.


I would assume that at that sort of heat there'd be no difference, your nerves wouldn't even exist.

Yeah, this.

At either temperature, whatever part of you was heated would be destroyed.

shit, if I had a burn remotely close to half of that, I'd rather die.

wouldnt you have no arms then?

Wait.... you wouldn't die from a burn on your arm, would you? Not if it was just like, a 10,000 degree poker on your arm.

Now if a sizeable portion of your body got burned at 10,000 degrees, I could see some death happening.... but just your arm? You'd lose the arm for sure, but I don't see how you'd automatically die from it.

Even if they weren't destroyed you still couldn't tell the difference.
Nerves can't tell the difference between strengths of stimuli, they just fire once it reaches a certain point. We notice a difference only because of the different amount of nerve impulses, ie more nerves are stimulated from a stronger stimulus.
I'd imagine 10,000 degrees would be enough to stimulate every heat sensing nerve in your arms so 5x hotter would make no difference.

well, your body is made up of mostly water, so after a certain point your skin would most likely melt or boil.

in that case, i think my arms would absorb the heat and id explode in a giant fireball which would be visible from space. then i'd say flame on and fly the hell away.

Anyway, I am sure that your nerves would more or less evaporate at that temperature. People with 3rd degree burns often remark on how little it hurts. That is because their nerves are gone.
#22
Besides reaching that temperature at a practical situation, being almost impossible, the whole body will likely evaporated in less than a second. So, no, i don't think it would feel anything.
