What is the internet doing to our brains? Lol
Wretched Radio | Air Date: June 27, 2023
Let’s talk about your brain.
Do you find it challenging to listen to longer sermons or reading a chapter of a book?
Could it be connected to social media?
The Shallows by Nicholas Carr – what the internet is doing to our brains.
How’s your brain being wired?
Technology has alterred the way we think.
Are we getting smarter because of social media?
The world of the screen is a very different place than that of the world of the page.
When was the last time you were bored?
When was the last time you sat and thought something through?
Don’t worry about bringing a Bible to church, you have your cell phone.
The Shallows by Nicholas Carr makes the case there is a major difference in words on a screen and words on a page.
Our brains can’t process or memorize information as easily as they once did.
Do we struggle with memorization because we’ve aged or because we’ve trained our brains?
The internet appears to be helpful, but what is it doing to us?
When people aren’t being bombarded by external stimuli, their brains are able to relax and get clarity.
