    So, it seems that repeated internet use has not only changed the habits, lifestyle, work, and socialization of billions around the globe, it is reshaping our physical brains in order to make us more effecient users. We are literally being altered to fit this new reality.

    Is this a brain blip? A phenomena? Does it leave you feeling entranced? Trespassed upon? Ohhhh.... it's like, um, what is that word? Actually, it's two... invoking and evoking. Some of us are not being caught unaware. Are you? The internet is not the only source, BTW.

    Not a blip, a process that takes place whenever you learn, remember, or experience anything. The constant, repetitive activities that regular internet use involves change the physical structure of the brain and related functions. We are being reshaped like clay.

    Welcome to Co-evolution.

    Our bodies will adapt to the environment to be better suited to it.

    That is static... Running water works as an effective insulator.

    No doubt true, for someone who has their face in a cell phone constantly or plays computer games obsessively. That phenomenon of brain "rewiring" is also well known through MRI studies for chess masters, Zen monks, etc.

    I don’t know, I’ve watched idiots posting the same crap on forums for decades without any sign of having ever learnt anything.
