The Selfie Stick Is Killing The Human Brain

The Selfie Stick Is Killing The Human Brain

The selfie stick is more than a tool for taking photos. It’s a personal statement. It’s a lifestyle choice. It signals individualism one picture at a time.

People no longer consume content on their smartphones. They feel compelled to create it. With a twist. They create content the way they consume it. Isolated. Alone. Continue reading…

Human brain and singularity thoughts part one

Human brain

Human brain random thoughts and assumptions about human evolution and our brain in particular.

The human body is the most convenient and appropriate way for our species to evolve achieve two things: 1) reproduce fast and efficient enough in any terrain on the face of this planet 2) keep the human brain at its best shape possible and increase stimuli through feedback.

Human Brain Axiom

The human brain bootstraps during birth and it’s only capable of survival through constant stimuli via feedback.

Humans’ inherent need for asking questions it’s just a mechanism to keep the neurons alive and firing. Why does the human brain function in slow but massive parallelism? Is the humans’ brain massive neuron parallelism a more efficient way for developing such a great and complex organ rather than having fewer but faster neural transactions?
Does parallelism brings greater feedback input via a greater number of synapses rather than fewer but way faster ones?

In a universe with high entropy, parallelism and a great number of synapses seems to be the best way to deal with unpredictability in a total random way among the neurons. Complexity and information grows and travels way more efficiently from brain to brain, along the course of time, in such a dynamic universe ruled by entropy.

It would be a challenge for humans and machines to achieve singularity and build complex and intelligent machines as the human brain; based on massive parallelism rather than blazing fast processing units.
