Technology is Enhancing Brain's’ Perception Regarding Time for Human Being’s of The Time
Our constant use of technology may be making our brains better at processing information.
The world is running faster keeping pace with the advancement of technology . people became very techno-centric in their everyday activities. Globalization moved us to the pick of digitalization which added an extra dimension to our regular time and conception of time.
Time is valuable and value of time varies from man to man. Proverb says ,time and tide wait for none but research says, time do not wait but go slows on a case basis. Don't messed up with Einstein's great theory of Relativity which explains Time dilation.So, we can play with Time, is it? Ha! Time is such a thing which can not be touched or seen but can be utilized .
Time ooks like to move faster in our age. How a day finishes in some splash of eye is a matter to think. How come we welcome an evening at time when i am preparing to start the most activities of the day. Same manner night reminds us that next morning is best time to start with your activities. Week passes away,month comes ,year arrives and life continues.
Is it our clock that running fast or other reasons behind ? few research result reveals the use of technology as a key concern of time magic. Now the question is how?
Just think of our involvement of technology in daily activities and how much time we are spending on internet every day. I’m sure we all stay online for huge portion of your times in a day. May be is the reason we cannot realize that how our time is passing so fast.
One of the psychologists establishes that human brain function move sharper and efficient at processing information . invariable use of technology varies the time perception for the same nature of job among different people.
“I’ve found some indication that interacting with technology and techno centric societies has increased some type of pacemaker within us," said Aoife Mcloughlin from James Cook University Singapore campus. "While it might help us to work faster, it also makes us feel more pressured by time."
A great researcher Mcloughlin researched in two group of people, one group is very connected with technology but the other group is not. she found those people who remain online most of their times do overestimate the passing time amount of time that had passed compared to those who uses technology less.
So while seating at room, they might find that an hour had passed when it is 50 minutes in reality.Also,any individual who uses technology regularly feel more stressed because of the perception like time is running out.
Even just reading a simple advertisement, subjects perceived time as passing more quickly, than compared to the other group that a long monologue from a ‘real’ book. ‘It's almost as though we're trying to emulate the technology and be speedier and more efficient,’ McLoughlin said.
‘It seems like there’s something about technology itself that primes us to increase that pacemaker inside of us that measures the passing of time."
In order to stop time from rushing by we need to unplug from the World Wide Web each week to slow down our pacemakers, the study suggested.
Disconnecting seems like a quick fix, but McLoughlin is going to take the study a step further to see if this phenomenon is having any long-term positive or negative effects on our lives.
Other research has shown that technology use can help us process information more efficiently, and actually become faster at performing tasks, which could help us save time in the long run.finally it is you who can make sure how will time behaves with you.it is to note that, time is always precious and how will you manage your time better will decide how successful you grow.
