We are all connected by Cords

Think of your brain, it has various amounts of cords connected to specific outlets that all trigger an emotion or movement in your body. A message is sent back and forth through these cords to be played back once received. This is how we gather our information via email, telephone, text etc.

The world seemed all too simple back in the year of 1837, when the first dot dash Telegraph was made by Samuel Morse. When a single cord was used to help overcome obstacles involving connection through long distance communication.  It started out with dots and lines to actual numbers and letters. This day and age we seem to trip over all the cords and fall into a never ending pit of rage when lag happens.

The advancement of technology and the involvement with the internet began to change communication all together. We are so reliant on it all that we can’t get away from these spaces within our homes, work or outside without something electrical attached to us. We are so consumed with this new technology of communication that is ever evolving in our eyes through social networking websites, certain apps such as Facetime and Snapchat plus many more.

One thought on “We are all connected by Cords

  1. Hey elly,

    Youve created a great blog post this week on “from the telegraph to cyberspace”.
    I was instantly intrigued by your parallel between the brain and communication channels or cords.

    It is interesting to think that we have the telegraph to thank for our large communication network that we have in this day and age. From dots and dashes to likes and comments.

    Great post, keep it up 🙂
