Nature Connection Will Be the Next Big Human Trend | Daniel Crockett →
The importance of telling appropriate stories is best summed up by biologist and Biophilia author E.O. Wilson who stated: “A culture creates its present and therefore its future through the stories its people tell, the stories they believe, and the stories that underlie their actions. The more consistent a culture’s core stories are with biological and physical reality, the more likely its people are to live in a way compatible with ecological rules and thereby persist.” Currently, we aren’t even close.

Stare At A Screen All Day? It’s Doing More Damage Than You Think →

The other bummer comes by way of two studies from Norway’s Stavanger University. The first analyzed the reading habits of Norwegian 10th graders. Students were given identical texts to read in both book and screen form, then asked questions to test their comprehension. The results? Whether reading fiction or nonfiction, “your understanding is deeper and longer lasting than if you read that same text on a computer,” says ScienceNordic. A second study in which 50 readers were given a short story to read concluded that “paper readers did report higher on measures having to do with empathy and transportation and immersion, and narrative coherence,” whereas Kindle readers had a hard time reconstructing the plot. The researchers believe that the tactile, physical experience of reading a book, from touching a page to flipping back and forth through that one confusing chapter, creates spatial relationships that help readers become more deeply involved with a text, able to use the content in multiple contexts and better remember a story. Whereas, the researchers conclude, “screens are best for superficial and speedy reading.”
