The global mind and its mental load ( -continued- ).
BY J. P. KROL .

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THE GLOBAL MIND AS DEFINED ON THIS WEBSITE WOULD BECOME EXTREMELY STRESSED?

WE HAVE USED THE WORDS "MENTAL LOAD" (A FORM OF STRESS) IN THE HEADING OF THIS ESSAY BECAUSE IT IS USED IN COMMON AND SCIENTIFIC PARLANCE IN RELATION TO INDIVIDUAL MINDS AND IT SEEMS FITTING TO REFER TO SOME OF THE RELATED WRITINGS ALSO IN RELATION TO THE GLOBAL MIND.

THE TERM MENTAL LOAD IS SOMETIMES USED TO REFER TO A SPECIFIC TYPE OF BURDEN TO AN ORGANISM WHICH IS DISTINCTLY DIFFERENT FROM "PHYSICAL LOAD" CAUSED BY PHYSICAL EXERCISE.

PRESENTLY IT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE HOW THE GLOBAL MIND COULD BE UNDER PHYSICAL LOAD BUT IT SEEMS DEFENDABLE THAT IT WOULD OPERATE UNDER SOME EQUIVALENT OF INDIVIDUAL HUMAN MENTAL LOAD OR STRESS.

THE GLOBAL MIND UNDER STRESS WOULD SOUND LOGICAL TO MANY PEOPLE, FOR EXAMPLE WHEN THE PLANET WAS IN A STATE OF POSSIBLE GLOBAL WAR OR A POSSIBLE STATE OF PERMANENT GLOBAL TERRORISM WHICH COULD BOTH DESTROY HUMANITY INCLUDING THE GLOBAL MIND.

THESE ARE NOT SIMPLE TOPICS AND OUR POSITION IS THAT WE WOULD NOT RISK TO INFLUENCE READERS WITHOUT GIVING THEM A CHANCE TO FIRST PROBE MORE DEEPLY INTO SOME RELATED FUNDAMENTAL ASPECTS OF THE RELATED DISCUSSIONS.

FOR THE INTERESTED READER THE AUTHOR HAS INCLUDED SOME OF THE RESEARCH HE HAS DONE ON SOME OF THESE TOPICS IN THIS WEBSITE UNDER SPECIALIZED ESSAYS AND SPECIALIZED ESSAYS ADVANCED LEVEL.
