The Global Nervous System

Today’s Internet can be compared to the human’s Central Nervous System, both are  complicated networks. 

The complexity of their appearance doesn’t just concludes, there is more to it. Medical experts are still astounded by the human CNS, doing whatever they can to search for drugs used to treat CNS disorder, even though the approach of modern empirical approach is more informed than what prehistoric scientists did, however the objective remains the same: to identify as fast as required whether a specific chemical agent displays drug-like characteristics of clinical importance.

Alongside, global digital networks faced similar problems, which has made us to question about the policies made by governments, businesses which are running online, and more. Over the time, technology has moved too fast and leaving a path of all directions for us to choose, same like how the information is being immersed all over the world because of the global network.

People are going with the flow, identifying and fixing the problems as they move along, rather than be aware or be conscious about the issues that may occur. Human body is organised so well that all of the systems works and controls us, however due to it’s complexity and the way it is designed naturally, whenever things go wrong, the solution to solve it is as complicated as the system itself.

Both medical experts and policy makers struggles in their own ways, for example medical specialists combat to discover the drug for the treatment of mental-sensory disorders, and the policy makers attempt to deal with controversies of freedom of speech and information flow.

Global network can be quite threatening for the elites (high class persons), and the well known business organizations. Freedom of speech is highly pushed in USA as a part of their commercial capitalist system, so their government has to think carefully about this issue.

Networks has become more and more important to the modern world, as they have the power, similar to the humans body- nervous system has enormous power over the body.

  1. Hmm..very well written..Theres a increase in my knowledge definitly..its a bit indepth topic.but very well linked to internet and cns disorder.

    What is the most common cns disorder in Hong Kong?

    1. Well I am not 100% sure about what’s more common or what’s less common.

      But I can share some info about CNS IDD it includes multiple sclerosis (one example) , this means that it’s a kind of disease which nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord are damaged. This damage disrupts the ability of parts of the nervous system to communicate , which in return can give signs/symptoms – such as physical or mental and even psychiatric problem.

  2. This is so cool. I love how you related the CNS of our bodies to the global network, because it really is that complicated. Interesting metaphoric article!

    But does that mean you feel the power global networks has is a problem in the same way that the controlling CNS has over our body?

    1. Yes, if Central Nervous system goes wrong it’s hard to recover back to how it was because it’s as complicated as digital global network if that goes messed up. So according to my opinion, the power it has is the same .

      HAHA, yes I somehow managed to relate both these things . Thank you

    1. Well , there are problems occurring already, such as it can be threatening for the government and policy makers. the problems has no way to solve , its an on going process in which we have to identify and solve by ourselves. Because there is no one who is ruling the Internet, Information is flowing freely.

      So be careful, with what you say and what you post. It just becomes a history even if you delete it , it’s still there somewhere. Use the freedom of speech wisely to be on a safe side.
