Gin and coke is one of the simplest and most important things that I can think of. The fact is that the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing either. Our habits, routines, impulses, and reactions carry us through our lives so we don’t have to stop and think about it every time we wipe our ass or start a car.
This problem is the same issue that we discussed with our previous video with the phrase “we just don’t have self-awareness”. Like with deathloop, we are just not aware that we’re on autopilot. So we don’t always remember to stop and think about it.
In the case of gin and coke, it’s because the majority of our thoughts and actions are on autopilot. We can’t stop, so our actions take the place of our thoughts. So when we drink, we are not aware of how we are taking our drinks, why we are taking them, and why we are taking our drinks.
Like with deathloop, the idea that we don’t remember what we’re doing is true, but its not the whole truth. The majority of our actions are not always conscious. When we are drunk we are not necessarily aware of everything we are doing. When we say we are going to go to the store, we are not consciously aware of the way we say it, how we say it, or even our destination.
The idea that we are not aware of our actions is not a new idea. In fact, it’s something we’ve been saying for a long time now, and we’ve always believed that we were not aware of what we were doing. But we’ve also always believed that we had some conscious control over all of the actions we could perform. It is true that we can’t usually stop ourselves from doing something that we want to do, and that is why we do it.
But is really all. The problem is that the idea of self-awareness is a very, very tricky one. It really comes down to what you mean by conscious vs. unconscious. Consciousness is a function of our brain, which is basically a giant computing chip that has a huge number of memories (and most importantly, a memory of the last time we performed an action that is somehow linked to our current state of being).
The problem is that the conscious brain is very hard to get to know. We can’t really experience our own memories or our own reactions to anything. That is, until we get a brain scan. Now, a brain scan is basically a bunch of sensors that are hooked up to a computer and a bunch of people with the good sense to make it work.
In 2011, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas conducted a study that showed that people had a great deal of difficulty remembering facts. In one experiment, people were asked to select facts from a list and write them down. The list included facts about the moon, a baseball, or a bird. After a few days, one of the people asked them to look up the facts. When they did, they could never recall the facts. They had to start over.
This is a very clear example of how the human mind works. Our brains are hardwired to be able to remember things. That’s how we learn, it’s how we remember our birthdays, it’s how we organize our finances, and it’s how we plan our vacations. That’s how we survive.
Our brains like playing games, it is not unusual for people to play a game for several days. For us to play a game that long, it takes a very long time to recover from the learning and repetition. To be able to play a board game for many days is a testament to the learning process and the patience it takes to play a game in this manner.
