Mornin '13
Filed under: BRAIN, MEMORY

Every time you try to remember something (anything) do your best to dig it out of your brain without using the Internet. Using the Net to look up stuff is okay and I'm not trying to badmouth technology here. It's just that recollecting stuff you already know is a good way to exercise your memory. In fact, stimulating your brain cells in any way, whether it's exercising memory or learning something new, is good. Do something with your brain, damn it. And, no, that doesn't mean you should just go and buy Antichamber (although that's not a bad way to start either).

And on that bombshell, why aren't you at school?

Oh wait, I know the answer to that: because school sucks. Never liked it. I remember hating every single day of it, as a matter of fact. Except, of course, chemistry. I loved chemistry. Hated the teacher, but loved the subject. Art class was great too. Loved drawing.

School costs way too much
Either way the brain is a muscle and can be trained to improve memory.

When we get access to the internet, we train our brains to only prioritize immediately relevant information and not access old memories. The interesting thing is that if you stop using computers for a while, all those old memories can be triggered at some point. They aren't forgotten, your brain is just in a different mode while you have access to the internet.

This actually leads to the culture of constant discovery and discovery engines on the internet. We're always onto the next article or video or what have you. We "forget" as quickly as we accumulate new information.

Yes, well, if you train your brain to access information all the time, superficially, and you don't take the time to accumulate or rather memorize this information you will forget it. In other words, your brain is used to shortcuts, so you're not stimulating it or improving it in any way whatsoever. You are in fact allowing your brain to rot.

We're not CPUs. At least not yet.

Maybe one day when Sarif Industries takes matters into their own hands.

Morning,

Read a good book everyweek, play a musical instrument and pay attention to the world around you.
  Vader: That sums it up nicely I think :)

School sucks. I hate math, I'm better at English than our teacher, which is sad, and I just realized that I could go on and on but that would make for a really long post. So, the only thing I enjoy about school is confusing the shit of our IT teacher, she can be so helpless. And philosophy.

School might suck, but it can help you get a better job. That's why so many adults (including me) decide to go back to school.

Anyway, I'm having a blast with XCOM. That game is addictive as heck.
