Nobler instincts take time

Emotions linked to our moral sense awaken slowly in the mind, according to a new study from a neuroscience group of the Brain and Creativity Institute of USC College
“For some kinds of thought, especially moral decision-making about other people’s social and psychological situations, we need to allow for adequate time and reflection,” said author Mary Helen Immordino-Yang. Humans can sort information very quickly and can respond in fractions of seconds to signs of physical pain in others, but admiration and compassion – two of the social emotions that define humanity – take six to eight seconds. The rapid back and forth of texting or instant messaging may not allow sufficient time for compassion to develop. So does this explains to some extent that twitter and texting is seen as dehumanizing. How can we evaluate the emotional cost of exponential mean of communicating faster and in a more laconic manner?

Nina Simone – Ain’t Got No…I’ve Got Life.

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

I ain’t got no home, ain’t got no shoes
Ain’t got no money, Ain’t got no clothes
Ain’t got no perfume, Ain’t got no skirts
Ain’t got no sweaters, Ain’t got no smokes
Ain’t got no god.

Ain’t got no father, Ain’t got no mother
Ain’t got no sisters, i’ve got one brother
Ain’t got no land, Ain’t got no country
Ain’t got no freedom, Ain’t got no god,
Ain’t got no mind,

Ain’t got no earth, Ain’t got no students
Ain’t got no father, Ain’t got no mother
Ain’t got no sweets, Ain’t got no ticket
Ain’t got no token, Ain’t got no mind
Ain’t got no land.

But there is something i’ve got,
there is something i’ve got,
there is something i’ve got,
nobody can take it away…

Got my hair on my head
Got my brains, Got my ears
Got my eyes, Got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, Got my chin
Got my neck, Got my boobies
Got my heart, Got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, my hands, my fingers,
my legs, my feet, my toes,
and my liver, got my blood..

I got life, i’ve got life’s, i’ve got headaches,
and toothaches and bad times too like you …

Got my hair on my head
Got my brains, Got my ears
Got my eyes, Got my nose
Got my mouth, I got my smile
I got my tongue, Got my chin
Got my neck, Got my boobies
Got my heart, Got my soul
Got my back, I got my sex

I got my arms, my hands, my fingers,
my legs, my feet, my toes,
and my liver, got my blood..

I got life, and i’m going to keep it
as long as i want it, I got life…..

Blind Willie Johnson – Trouble Will Soon Be Over

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

this is a quote from the TV show West Wing: “Voyager, in case it’s ever encountered by extraterrestrials, is carrying photos of life on earth, greetings in fifty-five languages, and a collection of music from Gregorian chant to Chuck Berry, including “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground” by 1920s bluesman Blind Willie Johnson, whose stepmother blinded him at seven by throwing lye in his eyes after his father beat her for being with another man. He died penniless of pneumonia after sleeping bundled in wet newspapers in the ruins of his house that burned down, but his music just left the solar system.”
