…this was the response of someone when I asked her what she would do without her cellular phone. That phrase, “I would just lose my mind” made me really start thinking about us and what we would do if we ever lost technological capabilities. As a matter of fact, I thought that if technology were the Mark of the Beast as described in the book of Relevation that most of us would be lost! So let’s talk for a second about the mind, since it seems so easy to lose it over trivial things; we all know about the five senses (touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing) but this data is used by the brain with its 5 basic aptitudes: attention, memory, learning, recall and speech with more than 10 billion neurons and connectors all working together. That is a lot going on up there in the ole noggin, isn’t it? Now let’s talk memory; there are three types of memory, imprinting sensory, short-term and long-term. In imprinting sensory the information is an immediate perception and can be lost in .3 seconds if not stored in your short term memory. With your short term memory information can last for a few seconds, but will be lost if not subject to repetition. Your STM can remember seven digits, but a ten digit phone number will not stay in your short term memory. Remember your ABCs? It took quite a while and a whole lot of repetition before we mastered that artful collage of letters. The ABCs is a prime example of long term memory; this enables us to recall memories from long ago due to repetition. As we age, however, long term memory can be influenced by other biological factors and degeneration.
