HEALTH DETECTIONS: HOW A CHIP IN THE BODY COULD CHANGE MEDICAL HISTORY

Central Processing Unit

“Tracking your health.”


digital doctors

Understanding your health is crucial in being able to live a long health life. But as time progress, what will the standards for tracking health become? Will we start to see microchips implanted into the body that will be able to track with 99% accuracy a health problem is on its way before we get the sickness? Because think about it, a chip placed in the brain, which is the central nervous system of the body, so that it can detect cancer in its very beginning stages. This would mean that the disease wouldn’t stand a chance of growing, must less spreading throughout the body. And thus allowing people to live longer disease free until they pass away.

cost

As with any clinical trial, the cost associated with this type of development would be staggering. The initial cost would have to be raised by through public, but more so the private sector. And this sector could most likely be from already wealth individuals who have the ability to give $100 million, $500 million, or even $1 billion for research. Only downside for society is that these are the people who would be the beneficiaries first. But with them putting up so much wealth, why not. But with anything else in our society, the initial cost are always high before it plateaus and comes affordable for everyone.

socially responsible 

In developing something so ground breaking, we have to make sure that we are holding ourselves to a certain level of decor in dealing. Because having such information about another human being can be an upside when treating them. But the information about patients can also be used to the benefit of the doctor and/or hospital. Because with hundreds of patients, or even thousands of visits in a year at a hospital, medical reps looking to sell products could make a killing if they have information about a hospital and their job is to sell products and services. It now becomes a race for more and more information about another human being. So morals and ethics will come in to play eventually.

externalities

The good over the long haul could easily outweigh the bad. Because imagine what this will do for the productivity of society. People living longer because they don’t have diseases. We could work for longer periods of our lives and retire much much later on. And it could contribute to the overall growth of of our existence.

POWER PLACE: THE GREATEST PLACE ON EARTH CAN EXIST IN THE HUMAN MIND

Image result for brain

“Your greatness is right above.”


CEREBRAL ZONE

The brain is a very important and powerful organ in the human body. It controls every aspect of the human, and it is the only organ that can not be transplanted. The brain is the central nervous system, where muscle movement is told what to do, gives signals out to the body regarding blood flow, and it is most used by us on the outside to think. And boy do we think; we think of all sorts of things to take place that we control. Only problem is, what happens once that mind is used in a more negative approach instead of positive.

POWERS

We as humans all posses to some degree a level of power with our minds. That means we have the ability to think up our futures into existence. Whatever we want to happen we can make it happen because we are given free will. But not just free, we have evolved into creatures that have what we perceive to be as rational decision making. And what’s rational sometimes can be up to the interpretation of the person making the decision. Yet, what happens when the decision being made is in the name of evil and not good. If one works their mind enough, you might even get others to follow your lead whereas you don’t have to lift a hand to do bad. The people who follow you will do the bad all on their own. Why, well because they want to believe that whatever they’re going through is someone else’s fault other than themselves. Where in our minds get us going to and motivate to act a certain way.

PARTS OF THE BRAIN: FUNCTIONS

The portion of the brain that regulates the sex drive, mood, drive, temperature, and thirst. This very tiny area of the brain is vital to the endocrine system.

This is the area of the brain that connects the left and the right side of the brain. It is important because it allows for communication between the two hemispheres.

The area if the brain where the two optic nerves cross. Beneficial in creatures that are meant to be predators on Earth.

Aids in relaying signals from the forebrain to the cerebellum. Aiding in the ability of a human to sleep, respiration, swallowing, bladder, hearing, and sight.

One of the most, if not the most important aspect of the brain because it deals with blood pressure, breathing, lungs, and heart rate.

The part of the brain that contribute to relaying information for the motor skills to and from the cerebellum.

This is the part of the brain that contributes to the functions of a human’s muscles.

HOW WE USE IT IS UP TO US

For us as people, with all the brain gives us, we can do so many things with it. The magic that it gives us can be seen in our infrastructures, physical abilities, and our various contributions to cultures.And what’s interesting is that there are parts of the human brain that we have never used. As a matter of fact, we only can harness a small portion of our overall human potential. Imagine as time go on what we are going to be able to accomplish.

TALK WITH SELF: IT’S NOT CRAZY IT’S HOW YOU WORK PROBLEMS

analysis, blackboard, board

“You’re not crazy, you’re just deep in thought.”


INTRODUCTION

You ever see people walking down the street and having conversations with themselves? It’s something you see all too often in New York City. But the ones who are having a real full on conversation that you can hear are the ones with other issues going on in their head. Me on the other hand, I have these conversations with self to work out problems. In which I will take myself out of body to have a conversation with self as if it’s more than one person. Then once I figure out solutions to these problems, I come back as one person, and learn to overcome obstacles.

WHY? WHY? WHY?

Now you might ask of me, “Why not just have a conversation with someone else; you know like a real human being?” Well, that’s not a crazy suggestion. The only problem with that, is that sometimes you want a solution to a real complex problem, and not an emotional driven response. Far too often when you have an issue geared at something more complex, people want to interject their belief systems into the equation. And that is such a divisive and ambiguous situation where you get nowhere. It’s actually (talking to self) how we have solved some of the most complex of science problems and found scientific discoveries. These problems solved and discoveries come from the ability to take yourself out of self to solve problems for self with no emotion in it.

HUH, HOW DOES THAT WORK!

Some of you might still be confused as to how you remove yourself from your body into the body of the thinker and not emotional. Because we all have an emotion that drives us and compels us to react a certain way. So how does one differ from the rest of society? This is how one differs from the rest of society. We all have the ability to be logical and rational. But for the most part, people who can create mathematical, scientific, technological, etc. breakthroughs are people who can get out of their own way. Meaning, having the emotion, yet checking it at the door to create something for the greater good. The majority of society can’t because we all feel what we believe is real. Intellectuals just realize, that overall, the majority of humans emotions aren’t going to progress society, so they don’t mean much. So with that, they can take themselves away from self, check their bias at the door, and ultimately create greatness in the their lives and the world at large.

CONSCIOUSNESS: WHY WE HAVE SUCH A HARD TIME COPING WITH ONE

Image result for mind

“Cognition is our greatest gift and curse.”


Since the beginning of time, people have been trying to figure out why we think and behave the way we think and behave. Where does this consciousness come from and why was it given to us. But our greatest strength that has built civilizations and continue to build is our greatest curse as well. Because in addition to the greatness, we have a history of famine, war, and poverty. We have used our strengths to control the minds of others, leading them down a path of wrongdoing. And this great gift that we have come to know and build so much, takes a toll on us when we are at the end of our lives. Or better yet, knowing that one day we will no longer be here on Earth. The idea of existing is beautiful, but the thought of all this consciousness dying and vanishing creeps us out.

My career goals are writing (screenwriting, playwright, novelist, and blogger), filmmaking, and photography. And when I sit down to generate ideas, with all the challenges of working on my next projects, also comes the great ideas. So where does all this come from that streams through my mind when it comes to telling a story. Is it a gift? Is it something that we are born with individually? Or do we find out a skill we have and build off of that to become great? In my opinion, humans don’t have a gift to inherently perform something that no one else can perform. We are all good at certain actions, but some of us will fight to build off of that, and others will ignore it. This is why we have few great people who go off and prosper at what they do. Like, for example, the movie, Good Will Hunting. Matt Damon’s character was a mathematical genius, but no one pushed him until he found Robin Williams.

In real life, there is no Robin Williams that comes in the form that Robin introduced himself to Damon. You have to put out into the world, and then hopefully someone will see you for your talents and you’ll move into a space where you can publicly express your full potential. Yet if no one is able to see you for what it is that you do, then is everything lost? No, it just means you have to go into the world and show people yourself. And having the cognitive ability to do so is what makes us think to ourselves, how do we get in that frame of mind. What is it in the brain where dots are connected and things start to make sense where we put ourselves in the know.

And in the end, that is the great wonder of the mind. That ability to continue to ask questions and gain insight into ourselves and the world around us. But the more we find out about ourselves, old traditions that have bound us for so long are dying. Religion being on of them. In the past we thought that this light in the sky that is the sun goes everywhere we go. Then it moved on to the Earth is the Earth, and we are pulled by gravitational force to wherever the sun goes. Then we have moved on to the sun not only pulling the Earth, but other planets as well. Now, we would like to know, where is the sun taking us as we orbit around it, shooting through the universe. The more time goes by, the more our minds become expansive, and we learn not just about ourselves, or our planet, but other awe and wonders of the universe that makes up us as well as other connecting universes. Yet with with all that knowledge, our all-knowing minds make us slaves to our own vulnerabilities in the process.

INTERNAL DUNGEON: HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN A DARK PLACE

adult, alone, black and white

“Fear, hurt, guilt, anguish; just to name a few.”


Waking p everyday, not knowing what tomorrow will bring. Unsure about your future, and not knowing what direction to take in life. You are in pain, so hurt that you don’t know how much longer you could possibly go on. And on top of it all, you start to contemplate what life would be like if you weren’t alive. That my friend is when you realize that you are living in a very dark place. Whose been in a dark place before? A place so dark that you can’t see your hand outstretched in front of you. Where did it come from and how did you manage to overcome such emotion. So many people on a daily basis battle with this feeling. I know about the feeling because I have, and at certain moments of my life, still feel the darkness. But those moments are not as prevalent today as ther were in the past.

For me at least, I was coming from undergraduate school into to graduate school not really knowing what I wanted to do in life. After college, there is a major drop off point from going to school. You have all these ideas of what you’re going to be doing once school ends. Then school ends and you’re thrown into the thralls of society. Thrown out there with a bunch of wolves who are used to fending for themselves. They were afraid like me once, but they have adjusted and are ready to devour me as I come into the game. And on top of that, you struggle with identity: as a man, in success, and in mental strength. Then I found writing, and it turned me on to a new world. A world of transparency, where I could otherwise not have been transparent previously. Writing is a skill that you are able to fully express yourself, where verbally I was unable to do so.

So in your life, what place were you at, and how did you manage to overcome that deep dark place? Hopefully there were was no physical harm to ones self that came with the darkness. See, there’s a lot of guilt that comes with darkness. Guilt that you might be living a life you know very well you shouldn’t be living. Fears that plague you because you are so unaware of what lies in the future. And the internal pain you feel when you have lost confidence in your ability to progress. In the end, being in a dark place does not have to be permanent. You still have time to save yourself from yourself.

MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES: WHY IT’S SO EMBARRASSING

Related image

“The battle is real.”


In the United States, millions of people suffer from mental health issues in this country. And the reasons for these issues are very broad and wide. The only issues that I can speak about directly are my own. That’s right, I have dealt with issues concerning mental health for the greater portion of my life. And the issues have been anxiety, depression, and a slight case of bipolar. The majority of it is anxiety with the depression coming soon after. So if I had to break down my internal issues, it would be 70% anxiety, 20% depression, and 10% bipolar. Some stuff is in my head and can be dealt with, while others will never go away. And what’s interesting is that, that internal anxiety that stems from fears have made me more urgent in life. But why would a person like me, as smart, kind, thoughtful, become the three categories?

Well, for starters, it comes from a lack of interest in what everyone else in your peer group is doing. We might see that sometimes as a good thing in life, but it can be bad as well. When you begin to lose interest in the activities of your age group, you feel uncomfortable. Why? Well, when you can’t connect to people your age, you begin to isolate yourself from the group. The conversations that they have and what triggers in you, makes you feel weird. They all are talking about going to the movies or a music festival. But you have no interest in any of the age appropriate fun. And the activities that do spark interest in you, is so past the other kids your age. I never dated also because thinking about dating was more interesting than actually dating. So I lost my virginity late in life as well.

And that lack of interest and inability to connect makes you depressed. Because you are considered weird by your peers. Yet it wasn’t until I became an adult I realized that I was not weird, I just thought in regards to things past my age group. All the other young people my age want to go to SXSW, Coachella, or Lollapalooza; I am trying to become a great writer and academic. Then it hit me, there are plenty of people my age who think the same way as myself. Plenty of people who have become introverts because we see things as it pertains to the world that takes us out of our age group. When your peers are trying to figure out what nightclub to go to on the weekend, you’re trying to gain intellectual capital to catapult yourself into success. Your lack of interest in one area, heightens your awareness in other areas, giving you the ability to think in a way most your age don’t. You view the world a lot more wide and broad, and not as myopic.

In the end, my brain has grown as it pertains to the way I see the world socially, politically, and economically. And I’m not referring to a one sided view. Perspective, a perspective that allows me to see the world from others viewpoint that I would normally not agree with. I walk the streets and observe humanity in our natural element and gain my insights into the world through daily interactions. Most people my age are not walking the street people watching as a means to understand the human construct. So my anxiety and depression stems from not connecting because the inability to be interested in anything my age group is interested in, yet I don’t want to be around people much older. It has taken me 30 years to understand and hopefully as I reach middle age, my life will be want I wanted it to be 20 years prior.

THE EVOLUTION OF MAN: HOW DO WE PHYSICALLY ADAPT

Related image

“How are we adjusting moving forward?”


We are always hearing about how in the future technology will be at such a scale. Well, what about the idea of human evolution physically. I have heard numerous reports of how the human species will advance in our physical appearance in addition to technology. This makes sense considering technology is getting better. All it means is that our minds are expanding, giving rise to our heads growing because our brains are growing. And when that happens, you will have the entire facial structure taking on a new look. Meaning, our bodies will also take on another form. And this is not in the distant future. This physical change is likely to happen over the course of the next 50, 100, 200 years. When you observe the evolution of man, 200 years is not a long time. The United States as a country is not even 200 years old yet. So what other factors could possibly take place with this change?

You are going to have a less religious society; one that is more human centralized. One in which man will be forced to help each other because we will know more about ourselves. Depending on a deity is most likely to decline. In the centuries past, we needed to walk and drive more, but not in the future. So our awareness will be heightened in other areas because we will have technology to scale to transport us around. And when one sense is lowered another gets stronger. Meaning, when we are driving a car, our minds are constantly moving trying to figure out space around our vehicles. The car has made us extra sensitive because you’re watching so much at one time. But with self-driving vehicles in the future, you’ll watch less of the road, and more of the outside world. And here is where your mind can focus on ideas as you take your daily commute. The mind can be a lot more expansive.

The human body will be able to live longer, not just because of modern medicine, but because of less labor intensive activity. Well, at least for more developed nations. Places like the United States, where numbers of population will shrink due to cost of living, and technology on the rise, the strenuous work on the body is decreased. And from this you have an aging population, where the average age of people in America today is 78, and will jump higher over a century from now. With everything that I have said so far, the human body will also evolve in how we perceive the world around us. With the brain expanding our eyes will take in a lot more than prior. You start to see life around in color and shape different than your ancestors. Images may appear in a totally different shape, and we may build to scale at a higher level.

Humans over time will also become healthier due to previous studies. We are not carnivores, but have had to eat meat as a means to feed so many people; it’s survival. So with this diet change, the body could also take another form as well. Well at least in more developed countries where people are more health conscious. In the end, as with all the technological changes, we also have to talk about the changes to the human body. The technology is growing to scale because of the changes we are going through internally. We’re getting smarter, we’re getting softer, we’re becoming less religious, yet more compassionate. We won’t be in a Utopian society, but at every level we do learn from past mistakes to become greater in the future.
