Revelations in cognition...

An hour ago

The use of technology has become second nature to us, but the mechanics behind it are becoming more and more of a mystery. Digital immigrants, the few of them still left, might be laughing at me at this point... but it is weird how these magic boxes work isn’t it? I mean, if it doesn’t swipe then something isn’t right? Oh, the irony of that phrase given the nature of OS’s now.

So, I decided to delve a little deeper. In doing so, I tracked down a leading academic in Oxford about the effects on cognition. It quickly began to resonate with me. Intriguingly, since the first television, electromagnetic interference has been present. Sure, I know - expected, but it appears to have more than a passive, ancillary effect. Behind the physics, the complexity isn’t really that hard to explain. In fact, evidence appears to point to a link between this interference and the frequency of the human brain.

I get it... this might not be too surprising as you chew on your cereal, but its implications may be more reaching than first thought. Thinking that sitting in front of a screen all day is a bad thing isn't rocket science, but to think that in doing so your brain is being dampened is another. Send me your thoughts...
