Technology and culture are deeply interrelated. If technology change, social culture will change. Just how the industrial revolution turned people into a industrial humans; with different values and mass pursuers. The same thing will happen today! Indeed our contemporary experience of reality is not a new age, but time repeating itself.
The greatest unawareness of our time is the affect of rapid change in technology on an individual. Humans are usually repellent to change. But when change is enforced a great confusion is born, in our case a mass confusion where the truth is no longer distinguished. Philosophers call such a crisis “A Future Shock . Undoubtedly people will adapt to advanced technology over time. Yet not everybody will “get it”. The majority of people will be confused which will lead to mental illness. Because the human brain is designed to protect when attacked and a future shock is a mental attack.
How to survive in a future shock?
- Accept the situation, to heal you must accept. Change can be difficult at time. Matter of fact everyone deals with change differently. Don’t rush yourself, just work on yourself until you digest the reality. Have a positive mindset and eventually you will adapt.
- Learn to unlearn, relearn and learn. In my opinion mind flexibility is Laterally the only key to future survival. In order to develop this skill need to constantly doing new things, exposing yourself to new experiences and don’t get too attached to any fixed form or title.
The theory of paralle universes is also called omniverse, is a hypothetical group of multiple universes including the universe in which we live. Together,these universes comprise everything that exists. If so is true, then the universe consist of multiple parallel realities, each reality represent a possibility. Your present choice is what determin your reality. You can change your destiny by just choosing between the possibilities. Destiny is made up of two parts; one that is under your control and a part that’s controlled by “God” the creator of these universes .
Lets take an example, imagine Tom walking down the street and happen to see an ice cream shop. The fact that Tom reached such destination is a blessing from God/ tom’s destiny. However, Tom’s control is to choose whether to take this opportunity or not. Until Tom make up his mind, there exist countless possibilities. Like him buying an ice cream, him not buying an ice, him buying a shake instead, him only using the bathroom or walking away from the ice cream shop…etc. Each of Tom’s possibilities is represented in a future parallel reality. Once Tom make up his mind, he will experience the chosen reality.
What’s crucial to understand is that if Tom have choosen not to eat an ice cream someone else will eat his ice cream. His opportunity will become someone else’s reality, if he didn’t choose it. This applies on everything in life. If you don’t accept the money, the money will go to someone else. If you don’t eat the food, it will get eaten by someone else and so on… This’s the law of life, to every giver there’s a receiver. You have multiple possibilities, but only one opportunity. So it’s either you choose to give and there will be a receiver or you take in place of those who gave away their opportunity. Another way to think about it is to every present there’s the absence of it.
The society link thinking with intelligence and engraved the idea that “ the more you think the smarter you are“. But is it really true? Does thinking improve your intelligence….A certain degree of thinking is healthy but if crossed it become overthinking. Which is a word used to describe limitless-thinking. The brain as an organ demand it’s rest. So an exaggerated amount of thinking can actually fatigue the brain. Another negative impact of overthinking is distraction from the real world. more like “living inside your head”mentally moving in a limited space of thought And failing to think out of the box.
Is the thinking the only function of the brain?
No, the brain is not made only to THINK. indeed thinking is not suppose to be done all day long. Thinking must be put to use only when required, other times it’s best to stop thinking. When you don’t think you finally shift into the NOW. you become fully present at the moment. Such shift opens the door to creativity. Physical activities in general can help your mind to rest and turn your focus outward (from the mind into the body). No thinking reconnect you with your body and the world around you in action. In other words you become ALIVE.
Albert Einstein once said _“I think 99 times and find nothing. I stop thinking, swim in silence, and the truth comes to me”
NO THINKING = FULL CONSCIOUSNESS
I can’t strop thinking!! and I don’t know what to do when I’m not thinking?
it’s impossible to know the state of consciousness when you are thinking about it. You can only experience consciousness. Think of consciousness as a mystery that needs to be discovered. What I personally do to easily shift my focus from mind to body, is concentrating on something outside of myself…Like my breathing, sound, the silence in-between the sound, the environment or even on one of my body parts. Once I reach my goal i simply reflect or imagine. Conscious is like a muscle, the more you practice it the most likely you will live in it.
