Incorporative learning.

I´ll start by just explaining a little bit about the topic title and then i´d love your input and points of view on the matter.

In modern society we are constantly putting our intellect to the test by being presented with new information on new subjects almost on a daily basis.
My theory is that this numbs us emotionally and that we are not able to transfer the information we learn into our subjective or “emotional” mind.
In other words we can talk about the universe and its size, but we do not FEEL in our body the information these ideas encrypted into language represent.
Its as if we´re trying to mix oil in water. We just keep adding more oil to see if that solves our conundrum. There are books on pretty simple and easily explainable subjects that are more than 300-400 pages long.

Based on this id like to ask you all some questions

1) Do you experience this as part of your empirical truth?
2) If not, how do you experience it?
3) Do you think that there are any tools/techniques to help the crossing of information from our language center/memory to our emotional perception of the world? (psychedelics , meditation etc. etc.)

If the questions dont suit your style feel free to share your general point of view. If you feel like doing both thats cool too :)

“In modern society we are constantly putting our intellect to the test by being presented with new information on new subjects almost on a daily basis.”

-Uhh no… People are dumber than ever, and people are clearly not used to challenge at all, seeing how they fear it so much.
It’s all old news, people back in the day had to REALLY face new stuff constantly, and failing that challenge usually meant death.

“My theory is that this numbs us emotionally and that we are not able to transfer the information we learn into our subjective or “emotional” mind.”

-It numbs us emotionally? Then how come people are softer, whinier and more lovesick than ever? How come everyone is just running back and forth to have their feelings stimulated over and over?

People are subjective as fuck, way too subjective. There’s nothing wrong with keeping things as objective as you can, if anything it’s a huge advantage.

“In other words we can talk about the universe and its size, but we do not FEEL in our body the information these ideas encrypted into language represent.”

-Uhh that’s an impossible paradox. Of course we feel it. We are in the universe, its size encompasses us, we have nerves and in extension senses. It’s impossible to be alive and not feel that stuff.
Not getting an overloaded ego reaction to it doesn’t mean you don’t feel it.

Believing is not feeling.

“Its as if we´re trying to mix oil in water. We just keep adding more oil to see if that solves our conundrum.”

-In this analogy, “emotional” input and response would be a better candidate to be represented by the excess oil, there’s too much of it and it’s causing atrophy in people’s intellectual minds.

“There are books on pretty simple and easily explainable subjects that are more than 300-400 pages long.”

-Nothing wrong with being thorough and focused.

“1) Do you experience this as part of your empirical truth?”

-Nah.

“2) If not, how do you experience it?”

-Senses

3) Do you think that there are any tools/techniques to help the crossing of information from our language center/memory to our emotional perception of the world? (psychedelics , meditation etc. etc.)

-Yes, there is a great one. It’s called using one’s brain.
