One of the more annoying things for people at home is the constant fight to find space to sit. Whether it’s a sofa, a chair, or a couch. When you sit somewhere for long periods of time, you are bound to feel space constricted.
The reason space constriction seems like the most irritating thing about sitting is because you can’t really do anything about it. If you sit for long periods of time, it is virtually impossible to get up and move to another space—whether that means getting up and moving to your bed or even getting up and moving to a different room. The reality is that you cannot move to another space because it is physically impossible.
It is not only the physical impossibility of moving to another space, but also the physical impossibility of being truly there, in your space. Space constriction will make you feel as though you are always sitting in your chair, a feeling that only comes from being bound to a chair.
The problem with moving to a different space is that you will not be able to see your surroundings. The only way to do this is to lie down because your brain is full of information like what room you are in and which direction you are facing. Imagine having to lie down and then rising up, with your brain full of information that you can’t see until you start moving again.
I feel the same way. I feel that there is so much information within my brain that I am just not aware of. So I feel like I am bound to my chair and that I am just always sitting there. Like my brain is full of information and I am just not aware of it.
How can we explain the fact that we are unable to see the world around us? The brain is not a computer. A computer has a hard drive that tells it everything about its surroundings, and in our case this hard drive is full of information. But the brain is like a computer where its main purpose is to make the information it contains more accessible.
The brain is a very good analogy because it is a very real thing. It is the same thing that your eyes are, except that your eyes, unlike a computer, cannot see through a screen. So we can only look at the information it has stored on its hard drive, and to understand that information we have to understand how that information works. One way that the brain does this is by storing all the information as a series of patterns in the form of neurons.
That’s right, neurons! Neurons are little biological machines that fire and change to a pattern that is learned and then stored in our brain. Each neuron is a little brain cell that can “fire” or “not fire”.
The problem is that when human brains are not functioning properly (and our brains get scrambled after a certain age), they become less like a computer brain, and more like a monkey brain. They are more like a monkey brain that stores information in a series of patterns.
