Despite continuous progress, human beings in the 21st century are exhausted creatures. Our bodies and minds, which have been shaped over millions of years of evolution, are subjected to extremely rapid changes that we just assimilate. Here are a few examples of the rapid change of which I speak: 1. in the physical environment, have invented more than 10 million of new chemicals; that you add to the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat and our most common household products. It is health that comes.
2. In the psychological environment, our experience of time and space, has suffered a drastic change in the last fifty years. We’ve gone from the cyclic time (marked by nature), at the time clock and are now immersed in the express time. What before we could do in 1 week, now we do it in 1 day. The distance we traveled in one day, now it takes 1 hour.
Do you want to talk to me? It connects the mobile. Do you want to write me a letter? Send me an email. Do you want to go somewhere? Get on a plane. We don’t actually live or in towns or in cities, we live in the Global world. Any news from every corner of the planet, we will arrive in less than 1 hour. We’re oversaturated!! Now that I was writing the above, I would like to explain that one of the structures that keeps our psychic balance, is the temporo-spatial organization. Translated, it means, that for psychiatrists is very important to make sure our patients are located and oriented spatial and temporal. A way of defining and stratify the time is as follows: 1. the second time, defines the timely awareness of being alive, since we breathe in that space. 2. The time of day. It determines our level of habits; Since that day, we eat, we work, we sleep, etc.
