Brain degradation

127
Every day, more and more people complain about problems with brain activity - an ever-increasing distraction (ie, the inability to concentrate, to gather thoughts for solving some problems), the difficulty of remembering information, the physical inability to read large texts. , not to mention the books.




And they are asked to give them something to improve brain activity in general and memory in particular. And, paradoxically, this problem is characteristic not only and not so much for older people, whose brains are weakened, sort of like, “by age”, but for middle-aged and younger people. At the same time, many are not even interested in why this is happening - they automatically blame it on stress, fatigue, unhealthy ecology, the same age, etc., although all this is not even the cause. Among my patients there are those who are far from 70, but who do not have any problems at all with either memory or brain activity. So what is the reason?

And the reason is that, in spite of any arguments, no one, categorically, wants to abandon the so-called constant, round-the-clock “connection to information”. In other words, the accelerated loss of your brain functions began on that momentous day when you decided to be constantly in touch. And it makes no difference whether your need for business, idleness from idleness or an elementary fear of being “not at the level”, i.e. fear of being passed off as a black sheep, eccentric among themselves.

Back in 2008, it was known that the average Internet user reads no more than 20% of the text posted on a page, and avoids large paragraphs in every possible way! Moreover, special studies have shown that a person who is permanently connected to the network does not read the text, but scans like a robot - snatches scattered pieces of data from everywhere, constantly jumps from one place to another, and evaluates information only from the “share” position, that is. e. “Is it possible to send this“ revelation ”to someone?”. But not for the purpose of discussing, but mainly for the purpose of evoking emotions in the form of an animated “burp”, accompanied by short remarks and exclamations in SMS format.

In the course of the research, it turned out that the pages on the Internet, as already mentioned, are not readable, but are fluently viewed in a pattern resembling the Latin letter F. The user first reads the first few lines of the text content of the page (sometimes even completely, from beginning to end), then jumps in the middle of the page, where it reads a few more lines (as a rule, already only partially, without finishing the lines to the end), and then quickly goes down to the very bottom of the page - to see "how it ended."

Brain degradation

Red - areas where the reader's attention is delayed the longest.
Yellow - a quick view. Blue and gray areas cannot be read at all.


Therefore, the most effective way of presenting information to an ordinary Internet user is to display information in the form of an inverted pyramid (that is, according to the principle “the lower, the less”) with the mandatory allocation of keywords (so that information consumers understand what is important and what is not very) and the disclosure of not more than one thought per paragraph. This is the only way to stay on the page as long as possible. If, as the page is lowered down the page, the information density does not decrease or, worse, increases (as, for example, in this article), then only a few of them stay on these pages.

My personal opinion is:

The Internet is a real drug. What is a drug? This is a completely useless thing, without which anyone can live beautifully until they try. And when she tries, the addiction arises for life - drug addiction is not treated.

People of all ranks and specialties - from highly qualified university professors to service workers in the maintenance of washing machines - complain about problems with the perception of information. Such complaints can be especially often heard in the academic environment, i.e. from those who, by the nature of their activities, are forced to communicate with people closely and daily (train, lecture, take exams, etc.) - they report that the already low level of reading and perception skills of information with those with whom they have to work , year by year falls lower and lower.

Most people have tremendous difficulties in reading large texts, not to mention books. Even blog posts with a size of more than three or four paragraphs already seem to be too difficult and tedious for perception by the majority, and therefore boring and do not deserve even elementary understanding. There is hardly a person who would not have heard the popular network utterance “too many letters - not mastered”, which is usually written in response to a suggestion to read something longer than a couple dozen lines. It turns out a vicious circle - there is no point in writing a lot, since almost no one will read it, and a reduction in the volume of transmitted thought leads to even more stupidity for not only readers, but also writers. As a result, we have what we have - a massive stupidity.

Even people with good (in the past) reading skills say that after spending a whole day on the Internet and maneuvering among tens and hundreds of emails, they physically can't even start a very interesting book, since reading the first page alone turns out to be a real torture.

Reading simply "does not go", first of all, because:

a) it is impossible to force myself to stop scanning the text, looking for keywords in it and

b) the complex syntax inherent in the majority of classical, high-content or high-tech works, which is completely absent in the exchange of telegraphic SMS-burping, is not absorbed at all.

As a result, one sentence must be re-read several times! The most outspoken people say so directly: I am disgusted with myself.

But that's not all. Because of the constant connection to the Internet, such skills as a person's ability to return to the once meaningful information, analyze what they read and connect their imagination are dramatically deteriorating. Even worse, in 80% of cases, people go to the Internet for dubious entertainment, or they get information from there that has not only zero, but negative cultural value.

At the same time, most people (especially young people) are tied to their gadgets so that when threatened to be disconnected from the network for at least one day, they experience not only mental depression, bordering on panic, but also a real physical breakdown, resembling a narcotic one. Do not believe? Well, turn off your soap box ALL and try to live at least 2-3 of the day without it.

There is an opinion that I fully share that the ability to effectively perceive complex texts, to read complex literature will soon become an elite privilege, accessible only to a particular caste of people. This idea is not new, since even Umberto Eco in the novel “The Name of the Rose” offered to let into the library only those who can and are ready to perceive complex knowledge. And everyone else will be able to read only signs and the Internet.

In short, no pills, no dietary supplements, no diets, no shrink rules, etc. unable to stop brain degradation. Only one thing can stop it - the termination of the receipt of all kinds of informational garbage into the processing system and the daily loading of the brain with so-called “useful information”. This process is extremely complex, and for many people, it is completely impracticable. For many, the train, as they say, has already left.

Once again, briefly:

Gadgets that ensure your constant connection to information / internet - smartphones, iPads, etc., without which you can’t even go to the toilet now - make you almost a moron with a sluggish, apathetic, with a barely thinking brain that is not able to think and analyze . But, like any drug addict, you, of course, are convinced of the opposite - that these soap dishes make your life unrealistically vivid, saturated, comfortable, etc., and you personally are a “highly advanced person” who is always aware of everything.

Thanks to these devices, all kinds of garbage that foul up your on-board computer so that you are only fit to do the most primitive, low-skilled work enters your brain in a continuous stream around the clock. You are not able to speak or write coherently, nor read - your speech is tongue-tied and full of parasitic words. Telling someone about something, you can hardly find the right words, and listening to someone - you quickly lose the thread of conversation and start to miss and yawn. You can not write, because in almost every word you start to make mistakes, but you don’t even know approximately how to use punctuation. But you do cool selfies (and other junk photos) and knock on someone on Viber or WhatsApp.

In short, listen to the bad news: mobile communication should be used only and exclusively in emergency cases. For example, you have come to an unfamiliar city and cannot find a meeting person - you really need to call. Or you are late for an important meeting - it is really necessary to call, i.e. You need to set up your gadget only to receive or transfer the professional and business information you need. And the rest of the time your gadget should be turned off. However, I imagine how uncomfortable you are at the thought of it.

You need to be prepared for the fact that all your surroundings will not understand you, to put it mildly - they will tell you that you are saying hello, absolutely kuku, that you have a roof, etc. Spit and grind. Remember, you are an object for informational attack and you need to defend yourself. As CBS News president Richard Salant said: “Our job is to sell people not what they want, but what we need.”

And finally, you need to re-learn to read books. Real paper books - do you understand? Do not look at your own soap box with a screen for hours with deafening eyes, but read books. It will be hard, but you try. You do not need to force yourself - read Ѕ pages on the first day, a whole page on the next, 1,5 pages on the third day, etc. Consider that the body will resist this in every way - it will be sick, and break, and pull to do anything, if only the brain is not strained.

    Absolutely to the point. Possession of iPhones leads to an assimilation, to inability to listen and think. And at the same time it starts under the train, under the bus, into pits, into puddles, etc. troubles.

    People almost stopped reading paper media. This is dangerous because in case of a momentary disconnection of communication, how long it takes, no one will be able to pick up a directory or a textbook to find the necessary information.

        I do not agree. Literature, as a perfect action, cannot degrade. Only a subject who loses the ability to perceive literature due to internal disorders can degrade.

          In general, I agree with your comment. But there is such a thing as degenerative literature. An example is the comics that everyone reads in America, and which fool people.

            There is a classic literature. She is immortal, therefore, in the best way reflects the eternal truths and human search. Everything else short-lived husk, which always accompanied great works, simply died off very soon ... Those who do not want to work with the brain fool it. As senior and reputable said - 2% of people think, 3% of people think what they think, the rest will not think under any circumstances. Each category reads its own.

              What makes the author think that there has been a degradation of readers, not writers (authors, editors)? There is not a word about this in the text - why? I don’t understand this and this misunderstanding gives rise to disagreement.
              And the phrases “I completely agree with the author” just fit into those percentages that they don’t think.

                Quite right, those slops that are crammed with the Internet are recognized by the author himself, but the guilt is purely on the reader, not entirely correct. That is, the degenerative system is configured to be stupid, and if you turn off the gadgets, then it’s not applicable to face it at work, in the store, in universities, the theater, etc., everywhere you will be bombarded with lies, a substitution of values, hypocrisy. You will be accustomed to primitivism, where the main message is to become "successful", get material wealth, and everything else is so ... inconsequential, which includes wise books.
                And if so, then what is the difference, whose statements are made by a political scientist, God forgive me, an analyst who is called to confuse and fool, or Plato, we will load into the consciousness what gets first, and what the supreme degenerates get.
                In other words, all this is a consequence, and the reason for the degenerative system that pulls civilization into the abyss is precisely its methods that make oligophrenics out of people.

                Between "not understandable" and "disagreement" there should be an attempt to delve into, ask questions on those theses that are incomprehensible. And when the whole picture of the interlocutor’s argumentation is clear, then consent or disagreement, or agreement with reservations, is born.

                It’s useless to argue about tastes. Each book should t.s. build up "statistics". And, it is possible that someone cannot be discovered, will live in the other thousands of readers of the century. But this will not say anything about someone who did not like her. It’s just not his book. This is not the question of the article. The problem is that today there is an increase in the number of people of active age who are not able to read books at all more than one A4 sheet and absorb what they read. After all, in order to have an attitude to what you read, you need to read it. Such is almost an oxymoron ....

                  Uh, no, that won’t work. The author unconditionally poured everything onto the reader and deduced all the argument without peremptory. This form of presentation does not imply asking questions - for this reason I simply do not agree with the material as insolvent and incomplete.

                  No. This is not a problem, but the author’s speculation, while on the basis of certain pictures, which just show that interest disappears with a read. Those who do not like to read, read the first paragraph and the last. Hurrying to give out comments right away. Or even confining myself to reading the title, this is a well-known phenomenon, even on the VO site.

                  Well, I repeat, the author did not write a word about the decline in the quality of the authors, simply because the presentation of the material and its content are below any criticism of the author. Out of everything, Total disagreement appears. Because this is a deep analysis, and not the absorption of any material, only on the basis of its reading. The ability to analyze - this is the highest (one of) form of thinking.

        I agree. The article is interesting, but the question is - do many men (even the elderly) know how to lay down a stove, cut down a house, harness a horse? Do women weave canvas? Or knit woolen socks, if you start with an unshaven sheep? Is it worth going back to? It’s ridiculous. Now it’s the turn of the brain - translation from other languages, a very quick search for the right answer (and even with chewing in YouTube)
        It’s necessary - yes. Harmful - yes too. We gain something, but lose something (basically, we lose autonomy). And the past is not worth idealizing, author. And 30 years ago without gadgets there were people who didn’t read books. Even in the USSR with its most reading (without laughter) population. And now in the bourgeois era, we just became like everyone else in the world. With or without a gadget.

            These are the problems of the “Nerezinova” and “Cultural” capitals, in the cities of the Russian Federation and in the localities, very many people still sort out the machines themselves and put down log cabins and build houses for themselves in a cottage type, and this is not “poverty under the roof”, but quite a middle class . So the problem is far-fetched and mainly only for those people who are hostage to big cities ... But wait, when were the inhabitants of big cities able to lay down a stove, cut down a house, harness a horse? In the 17th century? Maybe at 16?

              I agree that a significant part of the people in the "outback" living in the countryside and in small "district centers" in many respects preserved the abilities of the "self-master" and possesses very skilled hands (I am a summer resident and visit the sites of summer cottages, amateur builders and other "home-made" ) But from time to time the TV channels "show" modern residents of large (and medium) cities (they conduct various kinds of polls ...). Impressions .... - often, "quiet horror"! But the fact of the matter is that every year more and more people are moving to those very large and medium cities! If in the 60 years of the 20 century, 1 / 3 people lived in cities; then, according to experts, in a not very large number of years 2 / 3 people (and even more) will live in big cities. cities of 16-17 centuries, you are still unfair! By the way, how do you understand: "the big city 16-17 century"? lol Whatever it was, it is not fair to deprive the "Srednevekovsky" city dweller of the ability to harness a horse - after all, it was then such a significant "vehicle" as tepericha: "frets", "Skoda", "Mercedes", BMW, "Lexus", " gazelles "......! And "citywide" fires, due to wars, natural disasters, "accidents", were not uncommon! And rebuilt the city "the whole world!" (Putin’s “charity” wasn’t!

                Well, it's hard to argue with that. Just recently I watched a report on one of the central news, where a bridge was broken in the villages, one of the representatives of national minorities (or migrants) tucked into a flimsy structure on a loaded KamAZ. What happened to the bridge is not surprising. It is surprising that the villagers walk across the river for half a year along a log, and the width is between 10 meters low ... A village, whose inhabitants are not able to throw even a simple seasonal bridge, must be extinct before freezing. She is not viable. But of course the district center there is one more. Everyone just shrugs (There is no money and who would be surprised at such an answer?).
                I must say right away that the report showed the village peasants and women who are quite still aged, holding an ax with a saw in their hands.

                However, what does the internet have to do with it? The villagers, if they had heard of him, were only rumored. So such problems are not problems of reading or the Internet. It's not even about education. To do this, you do not even need to be able to read.

                So I do not agree with the concept of stupidity. There is a concept “I’ll die, but I won’t do anything myself - the Government is obliged”.

                  In addition to liquidation, there was also a collection of things and everything necessary for the victims. Throughout the Far East (I'm incidentally from Sakhalin).

But for the construction of a bridge, even if temporary, construction is nevertheless necessary. materials: timber, boards, etc. And for the purchase you need money, and the villagers and dumb have money. If they don’t have a job and they live in “gardens”! Now, if the local government acquired building materials for the construction of the bridge, and said: "This is for the last ... there’s no money to hire builders ... build it yourself" ... and the residents in response: "We don’t want to work.

If in the 60s of the 20th century 1/3 of the population lived in cities; then, according to experts, 2/3 of the population (and even more) will live in large cities in a not very large number of years.

                  I agree! And I do not insist that in the city, the “crazy people” dry their hands and remain “hands-hooks”! The problem is that the intellectual level of the population (including the urban) in the last time period decreases ... and the "division of labor" in the city leads to the fact that the townspeople lose gradually "multifunctional" skills and have only a narrow "specialization" ... Yes, this is a global trend ... but analysts (specializing in certain studies) note that if suddenly (we believe that it is hypothetically) the 3 World ... in a nuclear version will happen ..to more likely to survive will have a population with a greater " multifunctionality ...

        But it’s getting lost! A paper book is a revelation, it is an opportunity to flip a couple of pages back and clarify something. I know, you will say that this is possible on electronic media - yes, but on paper media information is perceived somewhat differently.
        And the second: now the kids don’t read the classics - the “good uncles and aunts” posted a short summary of all the classic works on the net: who said what, where they went, what they did. Two, maximum three pages and that’s it. Children are very happy, because "there is no time to read," it is quite possible to pass the exam.

        You see ... Owning information is like owning money. There is a certain amount that you are able to dispose of. Above this amount, you are already helpless, and in the best case, money will be at your disposal - all the time and mental strength that you have, you will spend solely on keeping about the same amount. About any "possession of the world" and the question will not go, you simply will have no time.
        But this is in the best case, and usually the amount over the owner’s strength kills him, literally, leads to death, and usually extremely painful. What we see around us - people self-destruct and destroy each other with blue whales, say, with the help of information. How about owning the world with a girl stepping out the window? She owned many information accesses. Like?

    . People of all ranks and specialties complain about problems with the perception of information.

    I would not blame only the reader. If the presentation of information itself is complicated, the thought wanders, and the text is monotonous and saturated with terms, then it is completely logical that the reader’s attention will be dulled, and the brain will be lazy at the same time. That is, the quality of the material sold is of great importance. And the reader, in turn, is either educated (grows) on good material, or degrades on bad material.

    That's right. But smartphones and tablets are not to blame. There are also "writers" of news contributing. There is a suspicion that specifically taught by some intelligent person. Look carefully at the news:
    1. More than half have large headlines that turn out to be in no way consistent with the article. And even with the opposite meaning. Just to attract attention.
    2. In the article itself, VERY often the first two or three paragraphs say the same thing, only slightly rearranging or adding words. The most hellish writers manage to give up to 3-4 paragraphs of the same meaning, where - the first paragraph is one sentence, the second - two, the third-three and finally only in the fourth, and even in the fifth, the whole story is told. Here what for such crushing, it is not clear.
    3. A control shot in the brain - the world was flooded with fake news. You can understand the first time, fiction or true. And to check all the information of interest takes a lot of time.
    Hence this behavior - the brain is simply trying to catch useful information from all this mess. And since the flow of nonsense increases (it came to the point that the astronauts were asked whether the Earth is flat), there is already not enough power, you have to not read it, but look through it.

    And finally, you need to learn to read books again. Real paper books - understand? Do not look at your soap dish with a screen for hours with blind eyes, but read books.

    A book is just a way of conveying information. In electronic or analog form, this does not change the essence. Will the perception of reading the same book, but on different media? I doubt something. Here the question of aesthetics is probably more, to whom it is more convenient. Just an approach to creating electronic books, still the same as paper ones. There are pluses both there and there. But to forcefully select only paper, I would not.

The argument is the same - "What's the difference? The text is the same here and there. And there are more books in one device. I don’t run along the shelves."
        I completely switched to electronic, as soon as all sorts of PDAs appeared. It was more convenient with the search, it was not necessary to remember where I stopped, notes, etc. Again, you can record many more books.

            As for the outlet, the question is very controversial. You can read a book only in the light. It is one thing if it is natural, and another if the light is from the same outlet. I doubt that someone is using candles. How to be here? Also with devices. If only for reading books, then there is a completely different energy consumption. They have a backlight in the load. Which is very convenient. But is carrying around a couple of books not energy costs? Yes, even one. At least one hand is already occupied. But what about natural aging? What if a fire? By the way, in 2015, as a result of the fire, 5,42 million copies of the publications of the INION RAS library were lost. Electronics can be duplicated without leaving the monitor. Sync notes, bookmarks. If you use cloud storage, then anyway. Fire, breakdown, lost gadget or other options.
            It is clear that if something global happens, without electricity everything will "fly into the pipe." However, books may be lost under similar circumstances.

        These paper ticks live, firstly in old books, and fall into new ones in the vicinity of infected infected people. And secondly, there are special aerosols, but it is necessary to isolate them as patients. Somehow they gave me a lot of old ones.

    I don’t like to read from school, despite the fact that I studied in the USSR and my parents liked to read. Plus, in those years, there weren’t any entertainment except books and a TV with several channels. Today you can download or watch any movies online, a bunch different games for any platform, for the meager characters of all stripes, there are social networks, a bunch of entertaining shows on TV that make the average person not think about problems in the country.
    And who will take the book after that? Of course, it’s bad that the children walk a little and communicate with their comrades mostly online, the adults are also not far away from the children. Observing people who immediately get into the phone when they enter the elevator or transport, drug addicts immediately come to mind.

    Thanks to these devices, all kinds of debris enters your brain around the clock in a continuous stream, which is soiling your “on-board computer” so much that you are suitable only for the most primitive, low-skilled work. You are not able to speak coherently, neither write, nor read - your speech is tongue-tied and awash with parasitic words.


    It is artificially created (people who own PSI technologies in the media environment)
    overload of short-term human memory.

    That is, overloading the iconic memory of the right hemisphere (visual picture) as part of short-term memory, leading to synchronization of the interaction of the left and right hemispheres, audio or speech memory,
    that is, blocking long-term memory by overloading short-term memory ..

    In short: then we can listen and remember speech with our eyes closed, in the dark,
    but the text processes two hemispheres at once left and right shaped hemisphere that connects vision. But since the dominant hemisphere is left for right-handed people, (except left-handed) then overload occurs precisely short-term memory, along the line of the right shaped hemisphere.
    A prolonged load causes overwork of the right hemisphere and it is disconnected from information processing, while the left continues to work (self-awareness).
    This is called sighted blindness, and was previously observed only in patients with a cut corpus callosum connecting both hemispheres, that is, those who underwent this operation, patients with epilepsy, etc.

    But smart people, of course, are not all completely polite, among them there are evil geniuses, and so they developed the technology for working on the psyche (PSI), a method of overloading the right hemisphere with a violation of the natural work of iconic memory.
    That is, when a person ceases to perceive information, can’t force himself to read, doesn’t remember anything, feels a sense of dullness, the fuses of the right hemisphere simply worked, so that overload would not disable our brain, the natural mechanism of self-preservation of our psyche in an adequate state.
    Here is the mechanism that has helped people survive the last 200 thousand years; some in the West have learned to use it for dibilization and control over the masses ..
    There is no 25 frame, and other electronic technologies, there is elementary knowledge of the human psyche that is applied to evil.

Back in the year 1935, having visited the United States, they were surprised that the Americans knew how to work well, but they didn’t really manage to think and analyze. Even at that time began to grow "vegetables" capable of working and not thinking. Thanks to the USSR, it got to us later. But today's youth is already dumber than the previous generation. Further worse. Soon they will not be able to read at all.

    Another horror story .. At one time, they very seriously proved to me that the player would make me deaf. He’s lived for almost half a century, of which more than two-thirds go to “ears”, two or three hours a day — everything is in perfect order. On the topic: I read a lot, read with pleasure, it happens and a couple of books on the weekend. I get much more pleasure from fiction than from movies (which I rarely watch). And yes, I’m much more pleased to use the “reader”, with a customized background / font / size, than a classic book. The social circle is not large, the specifics of life: work-home-work-home. But, technical literature always made a dream, found a trick for itself, read the boring "necessary" out loud, like poetry. It helped. Memory .. It's harder here, I can forget where I put the keys, but this is from childhood, from here - a permanent place to store things. Gadgets, my wife forced me to choose a mobile phone only five years ago, and then, because of business trips, while the laptop, I don’t even remember how much it was before. And yes, I write "by hand" - without errors, but I print worse, often "mis-click". Further: you have to "pay" for everything, especially for information. Let's start: earlier, for months you could wait for a product to appear from the author you are interested in, now there are personal "pages" - is it good? News - no comment. Permanent access to directories, dictionaries, translators, maps, etc., etc. Entertainment, while many are tied to communicating with people. Communication, this is not the last thing, agree. Yes, I don’t like something, something was done “through the back hemisphere”, and some of the current technologies are frankly annoying, but this is already a legal area, what will be used and how. And frankly, I'm afraid of such rapid progress, but there is also interest :) And the article is a serious problem, and the garbage needs to be removed, but - "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" ..

    Mankind has come into contact with primary problems caused by an overabundance of information. Analysis methods applicable in the former information space are now becoming ineffective. People seek out logical solutions in rapidly changing circumstances and do not have time to process information. Streams of imposed information from the media and the Internet pour out unsystematically or with a certain hint of influence on the consciousness of people. At the same time, many choose the way of sorting or filtering information, which further disorients a person in his information space. Moreover, there are no recommendations from scientists or anyone on how to perceive the evolving interaction of human consciousness with new circumstances in a new way.
    In fact, the answer is quite simple and does not come from doctors or other practitioners. The answer may come from mathematicians. Its essence lies in the method of working with large and super-large volumes of information data. If you translate this into a simple language of application, then it is simply necessary to develop a new methodology for perceiving absolutely everything and the more information in any of its parameters of tension, flow capacity, etc. the better. At the same time, to divide the information perceived in the general perception through subconscious analysis mechanisms and further in the transformable process through the conscious analysis mechanism. A person does not use or develop the subconscious at all and the process of leading analysis itself through the subconscious, which allows you to use the work of that part of the brain, is always even perceived as a guide to the primary action. But it is the subconscious that forms the analysis of the totality of incoming information into the brain without subjective analysis by the conscious mechanism of analysis.
    In short, humanity is generally in the initial stage of its new development. The development in the new circumstances of the high capacity of the processes of the information space in which he will continue to exist. And the main ones can and will be people who will understand the essence of building this information space in the language of mathematics, in the language of numbers expressed by a new function of constant value. After all, everything in this world has its place and significance, the direction of the development of the process and the goal

    In the course of the research, it turned out that the pages on the Internet, as already mentioned, are not readable, but are fluently viewed in a pattern resembling the Latin letter F. The user first reads the first few lines of the text content of the page (sometimes even completely, from beginning to end), then jumps in the middle of the page, where it reads a few more lines (as a rule, already only partially, without finishing the lines to the end), and then quickly goes down to the very bottom of the page - to see "how it ended."

    You are absolutely right, we are forced to accustom our memory to reading diagonally, and this addiction makes the brain lazy to analyze in detail large volumes of information. A purely consumer approach to information is being brought up. Remove cream from what is served. But to write and add cream yourself - the victims of screen browsers have seven sweats and yawns ...

      Do you know what algorithmic reading is and generally perception. This is when at first you absorb everything very tightly and literally, and then, by the measure of cognition, it is enough to read only the last name to make sure that this is a person known to you in potential, not to pay attention to him, or vice versa, to delve into his every word to comprehend his thoughts. Only unfortunately the latter are very few.

    Reading simply "does not go", first of all, because:
    a) it is impossible to force myself to stop scanning the text, looking for keywords in it and
    b) the complex syntax inherent in the majority of classical, high-content or high-tech works, which is completely absent in the exchange of telegraphic SMS-burping, is not absorbed at all.

    Already in the 90s there was another opinion: the reading generation doesn’t form visual images from reading when reading it - only a set of letters folded into words and sentences. Perhaps these are the consequences of the primitivization of education, the inaccessibility and "unfashionableness" of libraries, etc.
    And the rest of the time, your gadget should be turned OFF. However, I imagine how uncomfortable you are with just thinking about it.

    The statement is rather crazy. The intensity of modern life is not going anywhere, and a person who has to earn money will either be in the information field of at least his circle or become an autistic nobody needs anyone.
    What, in the time of ona there was no infopole ?, Yeah, schaz. We read the classics: Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and others: information exchange existed, only in other forms and volumes — letters, visits, reading stupid and smart magazines. Brains were messed up in the same way.

      The Internet and movies do not make the brain tan. Each one does it himself. But modern information technologies and computers not only create augmented reality, but distort it. Therefore, people become inadequate in response to changes in reality, and this affects their vitality.
      I will give an example of the fact that some studies allow us to compile a psychophysical portrait of ATO participants in Ukraine. These people are very closely tied to the motivating foundation that the current state leaders are laying. But they, due to the very clear parameters of psychophysics, are also dependent on external forces of influence, which of course work out their technologies on people with a primitive and unstable consciousness. And that the main opposing forces are also opposed in those technologies of psychic influence, which they trying to influence the masses. And we can say for sure that Russian experts completely lost this round. The results speak for themselves. And this is another question. Perhaps they are also affected by a more potentially strong side. Since the events in your country are unpredictable if suddenly the GDP leaves its post. Change is no longer an attribute of progress and development. Stages of change are always the instability and spontaneity of many processes with a negative connotation.

    Did you know that when writing an abstract, article, report, scientific work before the Internet era, a person looked at hundreds of kilograms of paper books in low-quality lamp lighting according to the same principle - to find out what is needed and not to read anything superfluous, using almost the same letter F ? And as a result of this work, information is practically not arranged. And columns in newspapers have always been written briefly, in order to save space and maintain the interest of the reader. Thus, according to this logic, a newspaper has always turned a person into morons. I myself read through the reference or scientific literature, I do not need all the information, I need an answer to my question and only what is important. And I read fiction, fiction from beginning to end, an average of one book in a couple of days, if there is an interesting book.
    So why does not modern man want to read large paragraphs? Because lazy.
    Recently, people have been starving less, they can easily find entertainment and read something big, he simply does not need to.
    In general, the problem is not an excess of information - this is good, but a lack of culture of reading and searching for information.

    Speaking to the general meeting of the Portmund Medical Society, Dr. Ronald Gibson began his talk with four quotes.
    Our youth loves luxury, it is badly brought up, it taunts the authorities and does not at all respect the elderly. Our current children have become tyrants; they don’t get up when an elderly man enters the room, retreat to their parents. Simply put, they are very bad.
    I have lost all hope of the future of our country if today's youth tomorrow takes over the reins of government, for these youth are unbearable, unstable, simply terrible.
    Our world has reached a critical stage. Children no longer obey their parents. Apparently, the end of the world is not very far.
    These young people are corrupted to the core. Young people are insidious and negligent. They will never be like the youth of the past. The younger generation of today is not able to preserve our culture.
    After a portion of the audience burst into applause, Dr. Gibson revealed the names of the authors of the quotes. The first is borrowed from Socrates (470 — 399 years BC); the second at Hesiod (c. 720 BC); the third saying belongs to the Egyptian priest Ipuver, who lived for 1700 years BC. e .; the fourth was discovered recently on a clay pot found among the ruins of Babylon. The age of this pot is over 3000 years.

    The original is in the British medical journal page 549, published on 5 on June 1971.

    I have read this “material” according to the “method F” described in the text, so that
    stop brain degradation. Only one thing can stop it - the cessation of receipt of all kinds of informational garbage in the processing system

    As a result, the "on-board computer" issued the following summary:
    Every day more and more people complain about problems with brain activity ...
    And they ask to give them something to improve brain activity in general and memory in particular.
    In short, no pills, no nutritional supplements, no diets, no brain rights, etc. unable to stop brain degradation. Only one thing can stop her ... The Internet is a real drug.
    You need to learn again ... look at your soap dish with a screen for hours with blind eyes, read books.
    It will be hard, but you try. Keep in mind that the body will in every way resist this - it will both feel nauseous and break down, your whole environment will not understand you, to put it mildly - they will tell you that you are with greetings, quite a bum, that you have a roof gone, etc. Spit and grind. Remember what a drug is? This is a completely useless thing, without which any person can live perfectly until he tries. And when he tries, then the lifelong addiction arises - addiction is not treated.

    Amendments and additions:
    1. I remember paper books "by heart" (tactilely) - covers, illustrations, paper, which paragraph, line, etc. Where I bent a corner, etc.
    I still remember 4 different editions of Bradbury, 2 editions of the Wave extinguish the wind that I had, but "left" and so on.
    I remember many quotes precisely by their location - middle, top of the page, etc.
    When I read paper books, I write out quotes by hand.
    Took in early October "Path of Trials "Fedoseyev Edition Adventure Library with pictures, shortened version or first, and in electronic form - more complete text, but no pictures - how the ring was bent, traces of animals, and so on.

    2. Libraries actively reduce / write off "junk" and a lot of waste paper - Perumov, Gromyko, some kind of fantasy. Even regional publications have not survived
    3. Even AST and so on. printing houses publish "popular fan fiction" - the so-called samizdat it seems to be a woman’s fantasy nonsense "Call me Shinigami" from Samizdat. Literacy is low
    4.Many highly specialized books are not in paper and in our city in general.
    I read in electronic form, this is good, but the cons:

    5.You read on the tablet and at the same time listen to the new album of some In Flames. Then I want to see the name of the track and get distracted, you climb to download the song.
    6. The tablet is “more humane” - The battery runs out quickly, but you read the PC all the way: with music or a movie, or broadcasting MMA / boxing at the same time when something is not very interesting and your eyes get tired more.
    Because you sit and read “to the point”, especially when there are links and hyperlinks and the Internet.
    That is - I look at "In August 44th", I look for an article about SMERSH and differences from the NKVD for example, then I look for a connection with the Cheka and the FSB, most likely with the SVR.
    Well, at the same time I’m reading an article about special forces in general - from intelligence to signalmen and customs officers.
    7. In electronic form, you select the text and either shove it into the Sep. Word dock. - either make bookmarks.
    but I had so many bookmarks, for example, on Sartre's Nausea, that it makes sense to make them zero - still handwritten is better remembered
    8. Quality information and books on the web are lost over time - For a long time I copied 36 Chinese stratagems completely and the Horoscope with a smile, now some books have disappeared, there are only "excerpts" of admirers.
    Some sites are closing. There was an interesting forum about killers and snipers HD
    9.Errors from one site are automatically dragged to other resources. (Take, for example, the epic from “A Volley of Helicopters by Spectators.” It’s not clear what it was - a fake or a provocation. That is first make a sensation, and then when "everything is not interesting" - merge quietly
    10 Quality articles are few. A lot of typos. Literacy and style are sometimes disgusting

    People have forgotten the golden rule. BRIEF SISTER OF TALENT. Most texts on the Internet are hypertrophied. A lot of water and molo essence. Sometimes even authors are lost and the meaning of the text is "drowning" in the "water" of unnecessary dilutions.
    It is a pity that the authors of this suffer from it.

      The author suffers especially from this. this articles. All this huge text, if squeezed, can be put in a couple of other paragraphs. Tell me honestly, did someone really read this chewing gum from start to finish? And how are you feeling? Not twisted?
      The author is a graphomaniac, he laid a ton of text and for some reason thought that all this information is worth reading carefully, with attention to every word, as a medium of information.

    Author, you did everything so as not to read you. Thought gets confused and wanders
    Let's look at one example from the text? I beg:

    Reading simply "does not go", first of all, because:

    a) it is impossible to force myself to stop scanning the text, looking for keywords in it and

    b) the complex syntax inherent in the majority of classical, high-content or high-tech works, which is completely absent in the exchange of telegraphic SMS-burping, is not absorbed at all.


    After the first paragraph (A), there is an “I” at the end of the sentence ... Find yourself an intelligent editor or even forget about graphomania and surface analysis. How do I know if a thought has ended?
    In paragraph "B", you have inflated with such words that they need to be ejected from the text completely. I understand that indignation is raging, but you are broadcasting to the audience, encouraging the type to think and read. Wait, read this? In your opinion, did I find my eyes and my brain in the trash?

    How much useful information, for example, is in this fragment and why should it be read and not flipped?
    In short, no pills, no nutritional supplements, no diets, no brain rights, etc. unable to stop brain degradation. Only one thing can stop it - the cessation of all kinds of informational garbage entering the processing system and the daily loading of the brain with the so-called “useful information”. This process is extremely complex, and for many people it is completely impossible. For many, the train, as they say, has already left.
    Have you tried to remove it from the text and replace it with one, well, two words? What are you writing about and what are you doing yourself?

    Touching smart people like the author - dummy generators.

    Nothing new!
    The Megabit Bomb by Stanislav Lem; well, maybe - "The sum of technology" is his ... I don’t advise reading - in the light of the article; "there are a lot of beech" ... there is a real risk of "not getting too strong" ... and in general to go with a roof!
    ------------------------------
    "Paper books"
    , yeah ... When each costs 300-400 rubles ... Better is the notorious "gadget" - a book reader - on "electronic ink" ... yes with backlight ... but I just got ready to die, I need to take a new one (dragged I read a lot).
    ------------------------
    The worst thing is that these degradation trends are actively indulged by the media and television (talk shows with bizarre presenters ... interrupting those whom they invited ... and if you try to interrupt him, they are ready to "interrupt" everyone around physically ... ) and the Internet, and - yes, yes! - so-called. "popular literature" (the mega-popular Chkhartishvili, aka Boris Akunin, a manipulator of Russian history and readers' attention; therefore, nobody is trying to compel something to comprehend, say, Pelevin, but Akunin ... though diagonally) "!).
    --------------------------
    Yes, stop typing! Nobody will read it anyway ... like me, this article ...

    The author’s point of view is incorrect. Typical panic of a layman when changing media
    information.
    About the same panicked, probably when the transition from
    handwritten books to printed (500 years ago):
    "Ahh, no one will be able to write books. Like this is a finished page,
    without invested manual labor ???
    They also ran into an old wired telephone when it appeared.

      It's not about the storage medium but the recipients! For a generation of 30 and older, this problem (little read) is not relevant (or to a lesser extent), but for those who are less than 25 this is fully true. Young people do not read anything and nowhere else, but only watch videos - hence the so-called “clip thinking”.

    Strategy,
    Personally, I did not ask for help. I have a healthy tone. Sober thoughts and reasoning. At the same time, for some reason this is unnerving for many. At the same time, I want to note that in the space of growing volumes of information, the search for new methods and work with information and the search for new technical solutions consists precisely in the fact that ideas can be so innovative that at the first stages they may not be perceived.
