There is this really enjoyable article I read here, it basically boils down to saying that brain scans reveal men are tuned to external events, while women pay attention to what’s inside them. This made me think for a long time about how different men today are from men decades before. Men and women have both changed dramatically since then, but I think men changed more than women, and reading that article it made sense. The world is changing rapidly, nothing is stable anymore, there is always the “next” thing to either fear or look for. Men are more respondent to external events than women, so they’re change is more severe. Men today are nothing like those of past, not saying that this is a bad thing of course (eventhoughitkindais), but think about it, if we, men, are changing and tuning to external events, what will become of men 60 or so years to come?, when the world is very different than what it is now. Women of course are changing too, but not as vigorous as men are, that’s why you can see more resemblances in women today with those of 60 or so years ago than in men.
You can link this to many, many, many things, and you can compare people today to those before, and it’ll make more sense.
Again, this is just a matter of opinion and my whole take on the article, not solid facts, so voice your opinion and tell me your take!
