Toward a Slow-News Movement

Toward a Slow-News Movement | Lived Time | Scoop.it

"Wait a bit, for evidence that is persuasive, before deciding what’s true and what’s not. Call it slow news. Call it critical thinking. Call it anything you want. Give some thought to adopting it for at least some of your media consumption, and creation."

Cleaning Up Your Digital Life: The Social Media Cleanse

Cleaning Up Your Digital Life: The Social Media Cleanse | Lived Time | Scoop.it

How much influence on your life do you think you control? Consider the potentially infinite influences: radio, television, ads, internet ads, newspapers, blogs, social media, ad nauseam. Not to mention actual people in your life with influence over you (negative or otherwise). It’s limitless. If there are so many, why do most people not control what is within their power to control?

Mariana Funes's insight:

It is not always about psycholgical patterns! sometimes a practical day cleansing your digital life may give you more lived time

Cognitive slow down and creativity

Cognitive slow down and creativity | Lived Time | Scoop.it

Although intelligence and skill are generally associated with the fast and efficient firing of neurons, subjects who tested high in creativity had thinner white matter and connecting axons that have the effect of slowing nerve traffic in the brain. This slowdown in the left frontal cortex, a region where emotional and cognitive abilities are integrated, Dr. Jung suggested, “might allow for the linkage of more disparate ideas, more novelty and more creativity.”

Mariana Funes's insight:

Does choosing lived time make us more creativity as well as happier?

Mindfulness: Observing Without Questioning

Mindfulness: Observing Without Questioning | Lived Time | Scoop.it

"An unfortunate aspect of our mental life is how unscientific it is. When we have an intuition – an idea about how the world works and how we behave in it – we act like the amateur scientist; we don’t investigate opposing ideas but automatically seek out confirming evidence. We’re elaborate story weavers, and we selfishly cast ourselves as the infallible protagonist who lives in a world of idiots. To paraphrase the satirical cartoonist Tim Krieder, we spend most of our mental lives winning imaginary arguments that are never actually going to take place. In other words, we exist in an epistemic matrix with a willful prescription to the blue pill."

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman – review

Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman – review | Lived Time | Scoop.it

An outstandingly clear and precise study of the 'dual-process' model of the brain and our embedded self-delusions"

Mariana Funes's insight:

We are not as smart as we think we are, and are not concious of that part of our self that is the "secret author of many of the choices and judgments you make". What you call 'I' is only half the story - you may think it is the lead actor of the play but you would be wrong to think this. Lived time can be found when we learn to trust that there is more to 'I' than deliberate effortful thinking.

Events in the future seem closer than those in the past

Events in the future seem closer than those in the past | Lived Time | Scoop.it

We say that time flies, it marches on, it flows like a river — our descriptions of time are closely linked to our experiences of moving through space.

Mariana Funes's insight:

The structuring metaphors we use to make sense of time being studied by scientists and starting to show that how we experience our body in space is how we structure the abstract notion of time. Might this research help us see that we have the capacity to transform how we experience time and hence stop being slaves to the clock?

"Functional magnetic resonance imaging shows what happens in the brain during improvisation."

Mariana Funes's insight:

When we develop a healthy sense of time we allow the central executive function in the brain to relax and this enables us to take risks and improvise.  From the article: “We think what we see is a relaxation of ‘executive functions’ to allow more natural de-focused attention and uncensored processes to occur that might be the hallmark of creativity,” says Braun.
