📱 Maybe you were suppose to do something important right now, but got distracted by a notification. Or you told yourself that it might be a good idea to check your social media again. It has been 10 minutes after all, something might have happened?
1. The number of synapses in the brain are not fixed changes with experience and learning. The media more than the content changes the way we think and act.
2. We change our brains through the tools we use and our tools numbs the parts they amplify. The GPS in our phones weakens our abilities to map out areas in our mind and I guess I’m not the only one that has notice a quality decrease in my handwriting skills as I write more on computers.
3. Deep reading demands deep concentration and has to be learned. Our intelligence hinges on our ability to transfer information from the short to long term memory and to weave it into conceptional schemas (complex concepts). Being able to focus on one thing for a length of time is important for creating that type of understanding.
