There are many hot issues in our world today. Examples include food and water security, racial discrimination, pandemic viruses, biotechnology risks, weapons of mass destruction, and more.
Hot issues invite for hot discussions. There is not only global warmth of the environment but also in the heated discussions that lead to the global warming of human interrelations.
The question that comes to my mind is the scientific findings that global rising warmth is causing our brains to shrink.
Similarly, I ask if hot issues shrink our minds to lose their ability to think of expansive solutions to the heated global issues.
Higher temperatures lead to drier environments. Are our minds becoming drier of new solutions because of heated global competition and negotiations?
Are our minds being fractured by heat as clay behaves when dried?
Are our minds losing their elasticity and behaving like rubber compounds, which shrink as they warm up?
Is this shrinking of minds a global crisis that warrants global attention so that we find ways to sponge our heat before entering into discussions of hot crisis?
Are heated discussions and conflicts causing a greenhouse effect on us as global warming does?
Interesting indeed; you have raised an important issue here, Dear Sir! I may not be as well-versed with every hot issue that faces humanity this day. However, I can say with absolute certainty that a lot of the evident “shrinking of minds” results from proliferating contamination as a result of biased views spread on the net. Freedom of speech has taken a new meaning wherein any Tom, Dick, or Harry can assume the role of an expert (suspicious? You bet.) There are all kinds of reports surfacing each passing day, that draw our attention to the deteriorating environment, the grim food situation, and the unhealthy practices we overlook in preference to immediate, short-term gains. On the other hand, not much is written about the positives coming out of various advances mankind continues making in almost every field, from technology to medicine, from farming to space, from education to corporate culture, and from just living to a menaingful living.
To support my above claim, I would point towards the changing job-paradigm, the fourth Industrial Revolution, the innovations in the field of technology that are slowly creating an oasis in the deserts of the United Arab Emirates, and so on and so forth.
I would be keen to see your views and learn from the same. Who knows, I may be blessed with a sharper intellect, and a new awakening?
Thanks, With Warm Regards, and A Prayer For All
I am deeply sorry for my late response dear @BHARAT MATHUR for my late response.
I lost my log in info and then managed to find it. Unfortunately, I don’t know why I have to sin in almost on daily basis.
You are right and I more than agree with you. You know the greenhouse effect leading to global warming. I may extend this to the intangible contamination of carbon-dioxide actions and opinions that lead to global warming because of the struggles they induce.
I wholeheartedly appreciate your comment and see eye-to-eye with your splendid comment.
