The Evolution of Thinking
Internet Making Our Brains Different, Not Dumb
- Are all people going to be able to "transition" into this new way of thinking?
- Will we become a society that will hide behind their technology because they have the option of anonymity over the internet?
- Will handwriting/ writing things out become illegiable or non-existent all together?
- Will the internet only make already smart people smart? Will it depend on the user?
This shift matters because we are the generation that is living through this transformation and in a way are the Guinea pigs of this change, in which scientists are watching us to see if this will be a positive or negative change.It is important because this is our future and how we will one day interact and live out lives.
The significance of this piece is that overall, the internet is not making us dumb, it is simply evolutionaizing the way we think and instead of thinking so negatively about the internet and technology, we should be more open minded to it and the possible benefits that could come along with the change.
