Altered Traits Science Reveals How Meditation Changes Your Mind Brain And Body Downloads Torren
Are the changes occurring in your brain as you interact with the Internet good or bad for you? Adapting to the touch and feel of the Internet makes it easier to extract information, but a better question is whether the changes in your brain will improve your fitness. There was a time, no long ago, when the heads of corporations did not use the Internet because they never learned to type, but they are going extinct and have been replaced with more Internet savvy managers.
As someone who believes both in human nature and in timeless standards of logic and evidence, I'm skeptical of the common claim that the Internet is changing the way we think. Electronic media aren't going to revamp the brain's mechanisms of information processing, nor will they supersede modus ponens or Bayes' theorem. Claims that the Internet is changing human thought are propelled by a number of forces: the pressure on pundits to announce that this or that \"changes everything\"; a superficial conception of what \"thinking\" is that conflates content with process; the neophobic mindset that \"if young people do something that I don't do, the culture is declining.\" But I don't think the claims stand up to scrutiny.
