The Next Age is the Neuro Age

Zack Lynch has a book coming out in July in which he describes what he calls the next epoch or revolution in human development. We’ve lived thru the Agricultural Age and the Industrial Age to get to the curent Information Age. Lynch claims the follow-on will be the Neuro Revolution, which will transform the way we work, live, and play.

You know I’m on board with this idea. The things we learn about brain function and cognition each day makes our previously existing knowledge seem juvenile. If the laboratory experiments of today bear just a few useful concepts, it will radically change the way we do things. A lot of this stuff is going to challenge some deeply and strongly held beliefs that many of us hold dear, including our views on religion, sex, wealth, and love.

I don’t know anything about Zack Lynch, except that he wrote this soon to be published book. If there’s a Kindle version, I’ll be reading it. If not, I’ll wait to hear what others of you have to say about it before I go technologically back to paper for my book reading. In the meantime, I’ll keep following what’s going on in cognitive science and letting you know when I find out things that you probably won’t believe about the way your mind works.
