Previously researchers believed that no new brain cells formed after a human being had reached a certain point in life. Now, they’ve realized their error, their grave error. New brain cells and pathways are formed our entire life.
Science has, as incredible as it may sound once again acknowledged reality.
The more varied and intense a given person’s life is, the more brain cells are formed and more pathways are formed between the cells. One shouldn’t just live a varied and interesting life, but also vary between the variations. Even the slightest variety has value, even though limited in the long run. I have always felt that my mind works better during and after a Journey, and now one has found evidence that this is indeed the case. It’s important to vary one’s activities in everyday life. More than anything it’s crucial not to be stuck, not remain in only one set of surroundings or group of people, one routine or set of routines. The tyranny’s attempt at keeping people at bay becomes, in light of this even a more horrible act. By keeping people down, by not let them grow they steal their spirit and creativity, their very life from them, and it is actually quantifiable.
When a person walks through foreign streets, in places she or he has never before traveled they grow as a person in a way that can hardly be sufficiently measured, it’s true value never be truly appreciated, a way going far beyond both physical and mental processes alone.
Body and mind is, in truth a unit, something more than the sum of its parts. This becomes self-evident when you start studying it all, like it should be studied, through a holistic point of view.
As a given person grows older, after passing middle age, one’s creative and mental capacities are inevitably weakened, but seen in the light of this new information, this is a process that can easily be countered. In a society, the society today’s world is so far away from, where creativity and variety are encouraged and not merely grudgingly accepted people, young and old will need far less care, and contribute to humanity far more than today.
One will create a world people will want to live in, not escape from, one where people will be able to live longer and better, in a society where «quality of life» isn’t just an empty phrase.
What are we waiting for?
