I did nothing all day yesterday except watch Ready Player One and Upgrade which were both rather satisfying to my anchored ass cheeks sinking ever so deeply into the memory foam of my bed.
I’m having a problem. It’s been an entire week since I stepped foot inside my business.
I want to squish my face and yawn and stretch and move. I want to get drunk.
I’m bored is what it is and I never get bored. What a horrible feeling. I can’t even write when I’m like this.
I read an article about people starting to rely heavily on Google instead of using their own memory/judgement. According to the article, this is a good thing since it can free up valuable real estate in the brain allowing it to work more efficiently. The hippocampus will remember only what is most vital and necessary, disregarding the rest.
I don’t think this is a good thing. It’s not good at all. Call me crazy, But I think it’s a bad idea to rely on ANYTHING. My biggest argument being that we will stop making neural connections and seeing patterns. It’ll put a halt to innovative thought.
I’m a thinker – I love to look at idea’s from all angles. When someone tells me a theory, I don’t stop there and decide to agree with them, no, I look at their theory and see what’s missing in their assessment. It’s like a game I play to find what’s missing. But I wouldn’t be able to do this without relying on past experiences to help me make patterns and connections.
If a memory is gone, that little cluster of neurons that once held that memory won’t be there. Google, with time, will shrink the human perspective. We will be lost. Just as it is with my small hippocampus that rely’s solely on GPS to guide me from point A to point B. I’d be lost without GPS, just like I’d be lost without my memories to guide me into making the right decisions for myself with the help of using my god-given tools.
It’s like Google is the new God. I’ll use my Google-given tools. You know?
We’ll end up a society of dementia patients if we don’t have access to our “Google brain” for a day.
I suppose it’s no different from the hive mind theory, AKA, social media mind. One mind makes all the calls and judgements for us – the collective – the people have spoken and as a collective, the people MUST be right and good because we are the people after all, right?
This post has nothing to do with Fortnite but I didn’t know what I wanted to write about when I started writing this. It was either play a video game or write in my blog.
I can’t tell if I have too much stress or no stress at all. My brain feels inoperable. I don’t know what’s going on with me lately. It’s like I too, am succumbing to this hive mind of no thought. Perhaps when the body doesn’t move, the brain stops moving as well? But what about Steven Hawking? Perhaps when we aren’t suffering through something, the brain stops thinking up innovative ways to stop the suffering?
I don’t know but what ever is happening to me, I need to fix it pronto. I need this bicycle trip more than anything really.
