Brain Freeze ~ Technology Can Freeze Our Brains ~ Limiting Our Cognitive Critical Functions ~ Its Reversible


Brain freeze, what is is? This is not discussing when we eat something too cold too fast. Brain freeze also affects human development, education, cognitive critical thinking skills,

addiction, time warps, technological warfare, personality growth, and character maturity, at every age. We have used our brains for good and noble higher purposes that expedite modern day living, improved quality of life, and also allows us to stream in to our brains real time everything, from conversations spoken at supersonic speeds, tweets, FB, LOL 121, 2G2BT, AGKWE, AFAIK. Now imagine that being spoken so fast while simultaneously driving, working, working?!

 

 

 

W8, I mean, wait! If you want to know the text acronyms (if you don’t already), go to netlingo.com/acronyms.php. You parents out there might be interested in these in particular: P911 (parent alert) which is sometimes simply PA, PAL (parents are listening), PAW (parents are watching), PBB (parent behind back), and MOS (mom over shoulder). There are countless others.

ISAGN, I mean, I see a great need. Some might say these text acronyms are brilliant, like learning a new languge. Just like some might say the newest of the newest technological advancements, like cell phones which are out-dated the minute they come out, keeps our brains active, alive and well. However, numerous studies on this subject say something different. The problem is not that technological advancements harm our mental health. The problem is that we stop, right where we are in our mental, cognitive, critical thinking tracks, while simultaneously deferring our brain power from knowing information, to simply accessing it.

Have you ever noticed that use of technology seems to induce a time warp of sorts. Have you ever just gone on Facebook, email or anything else technologically-based, for “just a minute?” Hours go by. We enter a driving fog. We get addicted to games and social media in a way that stifles human character and personality development. Our sheltered private social media space becomesa cold boundary to those humans beings who are physically closest to us, stiffling our person-to-person, face-to-face communication skills. This has far reaching consequences in the real world, with real live people, in real live relationships.

In some cases, some of us seem like teenagers trapped in adult bodies.

“Research on the physical results of thinking has shown that just using the brain actually increases the number of dendritic branches that interconnect brain cells. The more we think, the better our brains function – regardless of age. – The Franklin Institute Resources For Science Learning

Have you ever thought of what would happen if Google, the internet, or a satallite went down, for good? Could cashiers give accurate change, knowing how to really count your money

exchange back to you? Could we arrive at mathematical answers needed in daily living without the use of a calculator? What if Wikipedia or Google gave wrong aswers? Is that a valid reason for not knowing the answers to things, because Google, or Wikipedia got it wrong? If a satellite went down, could our armies across the globe still function?  That is not such a far fetched possibility, given that China has already shown the world they, in fact, can shoot down satellites, as they did on January 11, 2007, which was the first known satellite intercept test for more than 20 years prior.               This blog centers around holistic natural remedies for the advancement of humanity. Our brains come under this umbrella, like other muscles and organs in the human body,” If you don’t use it, you lose it.””Your brain is a thinking organ that learns and grows by interacting with the world through perception and action. Mental stimulation improves brain function and actually protects against cognitive decline, as does physical exercise. – The Franklin Institute Resources For Science Learning

My profile picture is a rose, symbolizing that we should all bloom where we are planted. I am planted in the garden of words of knowledge and inspiration, history and truth, quest and discovery. My latest book, MYSTERY OF THE STURBRIDGE KEYS - CHRISTMAS UNLOCKED, has uncovered the deepest mysteries of modern time, mysteries that were planted at the start of time. The theme in this book is: There is one race, the human race. It unveils the secrets of Christmas, Santa Claus, the Magi, Jesus and how Noah's sons repopulate the world through the empires. In the process you meet Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, Harriet Tubman, and learn that former Presidents Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are eighth cousins, both with traces of English royalty through William the Conqueror and Charlemagne in their bloodlines. This book uses real history, ancient and pre-history in this dramatic, plausible fiction/fantasy novel. It took me over a year to research and a lifetime to experience.
