Our brain is loaded daily with 34 gigabytes of content, which is the equivalent to around 100,000 words. One of the main characteristics of the digital era we live in is the fact that our senses are constantly stimulated; the Internet gives us simple, free and unlimited access to any information, making us always ask for more. We spend large amounts of time searching and collecting data that eventually we won’t be able to handle. This problem is known as “information overload” and it occurs when our attention is continually hampered and interrupted as we have to deal with an excessive quantity of facts; this may lead us to the impossibility of separating what is valuable from what is worthless. The mind goes blank and disconnects from reality, it starts to flow freely as water through unknown times and places. It gets lost in a stream of words and images that manipulates our attention and inhibits our ability to think and feel. Is it possible to bring our brain and life back under control? Or are we destined to be overwhelmed by this situation?
