Napping can be great! But sometimes when you wake up after a nap, you feel groggy, almost as if you are more tired than you were before taking the nap. Why does this happen? According to Dr. Michael Breus, “If you take it longer than 30 minutes, you end up in deep sleep. Have you ever taken […]

What Should Be FIXED In Human Biology ?

I will start with something called innate biases.
But aren't biases cultural constructs ?
Some are. Some do not.
However, when some human reasoning flaws and psychological proclivities take place frequently and persistently and are difficult to overcome regardless the ethnic culture that the individuals belong ( and there is a lot of ethnic diversity in the world ) then they are cases of universal behavioural and psychological traits that particular cultures cannot bend or neutralize because they are hard-wired by genetic ( biological ) instructions. In the next posts I will be exposing other lists of biological flaws that need to be fixed by transhumanism in the future using advanced technology.

The human brain is capable of 1016 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations. The lowly calculator can do math thousands of times better than we can, and our memories are often less than useless — plus, we're subject to cognitive biases, those annoying glitches in our thinking that cause us to make questionable decisions and reach ...

Is there a real multitasking ability? Working memory doesn't have the ability to support multitasking. There is always serial processing and the mind shifts from one task to another!!
