Our brains are being reprogrammed — literally. And not for the better, but droolingly bad.
A “detriment to cognition, concentration, contemplation and psychological health,” causing “structural abnormalities in gray matter” to the tune of a “fifteen percent shrinkage in the area of the brain that controls speech, memory, motor control, emotion, sensory, and other information.”
That´s what research in neuroscience is showing about all of the pervasive technologies — video games, cell phones, televisions, etc — so many of us spend numerous hours hyper-connected to all day long.
And, “This shrinkage is cumulative: The more time online, the more grey matter shrivels.”
“New studies are showing that internet and social media use contribute to or instigate even bigger mental breakdowns: split-personality disorder, delusional and paranoid thought, suicidal thinking, even psychosis . . . psychosis, that is defined as, a loss of what is real.”
These technologies, which we have only really had so dramatically present in our lives for the last five years, are contributing greatly to the mental breakdown of millions of people.
Bombings, shootings and other horrors, unfortunately, are likely to become more and more part of our dystopian reality…
…unless we learn to focus our attention and energies elsewhere.
