Do you think too much TV can cause.... stuipidity?
I was wondering, can watching too much TV cause a person to become… for a lack of a better term… stupid? Of course, im talking about over time here.
I was thinking that the watching of TV, regardless of what one watches, is not stimulating to the brain as much as something such as reading, or meditating to ones self in silence is. I mean, we can watch educational shows, and that gives us a broader sense of knowing, but not understanding, as we are thinking as much as we would if we were reading the same information….
I dunno, just an idea or something. I was curious as to other peoples opinions on it.
And for the record, I very rarely watch TV. Only when im at some ones house and it is on. Ill glance. But I very rarely turn it on, except to watch the weather :P
ALSO, im not making assumptions here, so please dont blatantly attack me. I am merely just doing some thinking so I can perhaps come to a better judgment of this matter and of…..stupid people :)
