5 Big Moments in the History of Knowledge Transfer

5 Big Moments in the History of Knowledge Transfer | Brains & Things | Scoop.it

There are basically three kinds of knowledge humans can share with one another: news, concepts, and skills. Most of our early advances in communication technology focused on sharing news over a distance – a good place to start, as it was helpful in avoiding death. We've come a long way since then, and while online technologies are still evolving – and while too many people still lack access to them – we're using the internet to convey news, skills, and sophisticated concepts globally, instantaneously, and with increasing efficiency. Let's take a look at a few key historical moments in the history of knowledge transfer.

Neurotheology: The Crucible of Religion

Neurotheology: The Crucible of Religion | Brains & Things | Scoop.it

A crucible is a vessel used for refining a substance, usually with the addition of extreme heat, which is exactly what I see happening to religion these days. Science, particularly neurotheology, has been turning up the heat under a crucible in which all religious experiences and beliefs are being scrutinized.

It's interesting how it looks so similar to so many other systems that we have.

Seeing Black and White Makes People More Judgmental

Seeing Black and White Makes People More Judgmental | Brains & Things | Scoop.it

Black-and-white judgments may be more literal than you might expect. A new study finds that people who view information on a black-and-white background are less likely to see gray areas in moral dilemmas than those who get the information alongside other colors.

On writing, memory, and forgetting: Socrates and Hemingway take on Zeigarnik

On writing, memory, and forgetting: Socrates and Hemingway take on Zeigarnik | Brains & Things | Scoop.it

Your mind wants to know what comes next. It wants to finish. It wants to keep working – and it will keep working even if you tell it to stop. All through those other tasks, it will subconsciously be remembering the ones it never got to complete.

Our interpretation of the world around us may have more in common with the impossible staircase illusion than it does the real world.
