Oh, money, money, money. What does the dollar amount to, "0's" and "1's" on a computer screen? Is that our beloved dollar bill? Not worth the paper it's printed upon?
As I have questioned in past articles "Where is the gold the dollar used to be based upon?" Isn't this similar to the movie, The Matrix where everything and everybody was an hallucination?"
Fact is fiction and fiction reality in our world!
I am making this article short because I believe pictures and movies are a more powerful means towards memory consolidation. This is more than belief; it has been revealed in psychology experiments, both animals and people.
In line with these studies, I don't have to do a lot of talking for I am sharing a video that speaks very well via imagery. This helps to reinforce your memory, which also is influenced through your affect i.e., emotions.
This is referred to as State Dependent Learning. Our affect often fosters memory consolidation. There is a "bell curve" to this in that if you are deeply and horribly terrorized (e.g., rape or physical abuse), the conscious memory of the event may disappear to save you from the continuous horror you suffered.
But this article is not about horrifying the reader. It's about education. In this article, I am allowing my target, Long Beach Time Exchange to take the helm. I hope you will grasp onto the wisdom inherit in the movie below.
