And I'm wondering if it even goes as far as erasing our natural feelings. The clock didn't erase minds the way billboards-pop music-television-logo-pop-up does by saturating your attention with enticing and colorful attention grabbers. Car horns for your concentration.
I did a little opinion piece on how media can program our emotional reaction and eventually override our intellectual thoughts.
The chemical arrangement inside each brain tends to be dependent on external stimuli. Cognitive conditioning can strengthen or weaken synaptic bridges when we engage in & repeat the same method of behavior. The human mind is malleable, neuroplasticity allows us to be very adaptable and very stubborn. For the repetition builds its own repeated model of reception. In theory, the information promulgator is deeply embedded and involved in building synaptic pathways. These pathways manifest through psychogenic interactions with the world. Every manifestation of brain activity must go through the intellectual & emotional areas of our mind's electric tapestry. viewtopic.php?f=53&t=161131
You may understand, the subliminal pattern recognition that occurs and passes on as an intellectual fruition can be programmed by the environment. The conscious mind over matter procedure will use critical thinking skills relying on the areas of our brain that deal with visible computations, but the subconscious matter over mind procedure will use emotional skills relying on the areas of our brain that deal with reflexive and invisible computations. Whereas to clarify this idea, I am saying that the emotional reflex is hardwired and automatic, and the intellectual reflex is trained and manually exhumed.
My hypothesis- Media as an external environment subconsciously involves us through emotional ploy operating on an instinctual level absorbed through the human sensory system. Anyone can intellectually refute an advertisement, but the underlying assault that stimulates the emotional centers of our brain slips by the well-coordinated defense of enlightened thought. Consider it a loophole, where your eyes are wide shut.
Artificial mediums build behavior models by infiltrating your emotions, the emotions go on to change your intellectual life. Popular pattern psychosis is a form of groupthink, and it has little to do with higher cognitive functions. Emotional information will change the chemical balance of an individual through repeated exposure to emotional models of behavior. Like the intellect, we need to train our emotional centers to defend against the subconscious information field we encounter everyday.
You are feeling very, very distracted....
Technology can be the distraction, but I understand that you are referring to the content inside the medium.
Do you believe in denial, or is denial one absolute value found within your mind's I? When you interact with artificial external realities (technological spheres that create the illusion of depth) you find that you are completely numb to natural external realities. The detachment of one sense in isolation from the others can produce hypnotic tranquility, but you must ignore the organic interplay occurring around you always just to appreciate the illusion of depth.viewtopic.php?f=92&t=161014&start=20
The radio signal isolates your inner ear, pacifying your eyes. When the radio signal infiltrates and vibrates it creates an illusion of simultaneity giving depth to the experience of hearing... Yet the radio's signal lags behind the now and the organic eternal moment that engages all senses at once. Therefore, to experience life through the technology of radio, you must live in denial of each natural moment. Translating any experience through artificial external realities (technology) requires a fragmented sense of the world around you.
I believe that the medium or hardware distracts our senses while the content or software slips inside our subconscious. This is all followed by projection by every person who represses the information subliminally obtained.
This is why I've been passionately denouncing virtual reality. Virtual reality will be one advertising matrix/pure brain washing platform.
This is why I've been railing against the automation of life through technology & the internet of things. Advertisements will be on our fridges, washers, windows, cars, etc. Sure, the GDP will continue to be a sped up algorithm of mass production and mass consumption, but what will become of the human being biologically evolving alongside this kind of inclusive propaganda?
Wallstreet wishes to manufacture your wants & desires and then automate the consumption of your wants & desires. As we become digital avatars (online representation of our international consumer identity) avatars will embody our likes and dislikes, while computers monitor the interactions we have with our environment, continuously meeting any new want or desire with perfect product placement anywhere anytime.
