Losing our brains with disruptive technologies (II): Refreshing our basic brain evolving concepts.

Have a beautiful end of the week. For those of you that browse, read this blog and live on the other side of the world, probably you are now sleeping. I will try to finish this post to be delivered as soon as you wake up tomorrow Saturday.

Before starting our outline at full speed, I would like to refresh some slides that I already covered during the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018 (April last year). Find the following link which I consider important for you to retain a.s.a.p. Please click below to refresh your mind:

From Itajai to Newport-Corporate Strategy Renewal

Of the set of slides introduced during Leg 8, I have chosen one that was prepared by Time Magazine (2012). It is crucial for us to renew our concepts again. For the sake of the context of our introduction to this saga, particularly when it comes to our brain capabilities learning timeline:

BrainI am not a brain neuroscientist expert, but there are simple inferences which we can do about the brain, based on our observations of people skills development. Our brain does multiple things for us. Our brains are our core motor of control and directions energy for everything we do. Our heart pumps blood to keep our body parts on point, as much as the lungs help us to translate the oxygen from the air to our organs. Each of our organs has a task to accomplish, but the brain is the main source of every single thing we do as humans.  Without professional help, disabled people with brain damage, are limited in comparison to what a normal average brain can do. That is why our brains are so valuable. And little we do to protect them as our most cherished treasure. All we create, talk, move,  produce, accomplish, feel, etc is connected to our brains, and our brains need to improve or expand over time. Training our brains is crucial in order to amplify our ultimate uppermost potential. Each human being is born with a unique brain. And our brain apprentice has different development curves. Our basic physiology brain development during childhood can´t be compared to our brain aptitudes growth curve. Additionally, our emotions evolution elevation is slower and takes more time, than what the commercial corporate leadership requirements demand at the job marketplace.

We reach the peak of our brain emotional intelligence at around 60 years old, and that is why I will eternally justify the notion that leaders at the top corporate and public government institutions must be at least 60 years old in order to contribute good integral things to our planet.  Although the last idea will be unfolded in another saga.

Each of our technologies has been invented by someone or a group of people who thought of making and creating a new way of doing things with a specific purpose. Throughout history, we have not stopped to make new technologies in every single activity we “believe” we must perform. That is why I prepared and designed this saga outlined as follows:

Eliescalante Losing our brains with disruptive Tech outline 1 2020.jpg

In “Losing our brains with disruptive technologies”, I have included the main activities of humans which are and have been affected by disruptive technologies: Breath, Touch, See, Listen, Taste, Eat, Drink, Think, Work, Invest, Produce, Rest, Sleep, Explore, Move, Transport, Cleanse, Cure, Socialize with others, Interact, Communicate, Protect, Have Sex, Reproduce, Study, Educate, Learn, Recreate (Play), Perform Arts, and Practice Sports. Of course, there are more actions that humans portray, but I have chosen the most relevant ones which have been updated or crippled by disruptive technologies. I have not included the Worship to God, Feel and Kill activities in this outline. Why? I wish Worship and Feel activities not to be disordered by our own destructive automatizations. I deeply instruct our feelings to be left under the human dimension solely. Our feelings differentiate us from machines and robots. The Kill activity is not included in this saga too: This venture is subject to a different analysis since the bioethical judgment is intrusive for our own existence when it comes to our brain. In Christianity, our religion forbids us to kill. But many technologies designed to kill were triggered by the insatiable desire for survival, destruction, defense, and wrongdoings punishment as our origins. Expanding this activity, maligned or sick brains can kill using disruptive technologies and, I won´t investigate the brain pathologies of criminals that invent them either. Please just be aware, that murderers have also formulated and used disruptive technologies to slaughter others as the nazis did it to the Jews during WWII, or the ones who used the atomic bomb which was thrown to the Japanese; or the extreme Islamic religious bombs that we have seen exploited on and on against the guiltless; or the nuclear reactors shortcomings assassinations during the last 50 years.

Now that we are on the same page, next week we will start with the first-week theme: How our 5 basic senses (breath, touch, see, listen and taste) have been affected and are influenced by disruptive technologies? For the better and for the worst.

Thank you so much for your patience to read to me.

Blessings, see you again next week.
