Finished my math test today. It seems like I did alright. Couldn't fully solve one question, and for another question, I did not simplify my answers. Estimate: 92-96%.
Now let's see. Thanks to Frank Cheng, I have a good thing to talk about today. We were in International Business when Frank suddenly said he had a déjà vu. Everyone felt this, but when I experience a déjà vu, I personally feel that I have dreamt of the particular situation before. Scientifically speaking, there are two theories. The first theory states that déjà vu occurs when one's short term memory is overlapped with their long-term memory in the neurological system. In layman terms, this means that the memory is stored in a person's memory before the conscious part of the brain even receives the information. This gives the person an unusual sensation of nostalgia and eeriness. Also, when one tries to figure out what has happened, they will go into a confusing paradox.
The second theory explains that one eye receives the information faster than the other eye, thus the information if stored before the other eye sees the information. Thus, it seems like we have seen it before. The only problem is that this theory does not explain when one hears something and has a déjà vu.
Of course there are other theories which are not scientific. For example, one theory is that one has foresaw the situation before hand in a dream or something. Another theory states that all these events may have happened in one's past life... I guess we can also say that we might have déjà vu when the other us in another universe (multi-verse theory) does the exact same thing and... BOOM déjà vu!
Question of the day: Do you think our generation is smarter or dumber relative to our parents generation? Smarter as in more knowledgeable, quicker, etc. Also when I say generation, I mean averagely, not just the smartest or dumbest person. Also, do you think the future generation will become smarter or dumb (since people are now very dependent on technology and service from others)? Please comment to reply!
