Drinking has always been a paradox for human beings: the harm of drunk no need to repeat, but almost all human civilization cannot resist the temptation of alcohol, and the "banned alcohol order" in different periods has never been successful.While complaining about the harm of alcohol, we cannot explain why human society cannot be separated from alcohol.
Canadian Sinologist Mori Lan broke the discipline boundary in "Why do we love drinking" and merged the achievements of transistory biology, neuroscience, anthropology, archeology, and literary research.Alcohol is the earliest "vomiting agent" carried by human beings. It brings a rapidly effective but mild and stable rational drop and creative thinking. It has always been a key element to promote human cooperation, cultural heritage and innovation.In this sense, alcohol helps to solve the challenges facing human society, and even help the generation of modern civilization.
The following is authorized by the Publishing House to be excerpted from "Why We Love to Drink" (with abuse), and to help people evaluate the sincerity and credibility in the relationship, drinking the establishment of social bonds, and why business travel cannot be completely replaced.The angle explains the cultural cause of "why do we love drinking".

Chemical handshake: vomit the truth after drinking
In order to enjoy the benefits of sincerity, humans must learn how to trust, but they must not be reluctant to trust.This demand has promoted the development of the various capabilities of the sincerity and credibility of others, including reading facial micro -expression, tone, and body language.Studies have shown that we immediately evaluated the credibility of others after meeting with others.
As far as the discussion of this book is concerned, it is very important that in this contest between deception and anti -deception, culture is not an onlooker who is not interested.When individuals in culture can solve the "prisoner’s dilemma" and other cooperation challenges, culture will benefit, so they will be more willing to support anti -deception side.They will aim at the weakness of the deception, that is, cheating or lying requires cognitive control.When you tell the truth or express your sincere emotions, it is easy to show honesty or sincerity; you need to work hard and pay attention to composing lies or pretending emotions.If you want a liar to lie more, a promising method is to use this weakness to reduce their cognitive control.Ideally, you will want to do this in any important social occasions that may be deceived, and you must do it.Merid magnetic magnets are not allowed.If you can do this in a really pleasant way, and make people happy and focus more on the people around them, the effect is added.
You understand what I want to say.I have spent a lot of time here to discuss the evolutionary dynamics of commitment and identify the evolutionary dynamics of deception, because the threat brought by the pseudo -gentleman and false friends is a matter of life and death for any community.This is why helping the pretender’s veil and consolidating interpersonal trust is an important role in anesthesia in human civilization.Whether in ancient Greek, ancient China, medieval Europe, or prehistoric Pacific islands, no place for individuals who might be hostile to gather together without having a number of amazing anesthesia.
Participants did not first drink a few cups of meticulous alcohol to damage their brains, and they would not reach any political agreement.Tacitus, a Roman historian, pointed out that in the barbaric tribe in Germany, every political or military decision must be tested by the drunk public opinion:
At the banquet, they usually negotiate with their enemies reconciled, marriage alliances, chiefs selected, and even the main war leader and to negotiate, because they believe that no other thoughts are more open than after wine, and people are more eager for the simple nature of the goal.The lofty pursuit is more enthusiastic.A nan not understanding the cunning race, revealing their hidden thoughts in the free atmosphere of the festival.Therefore, when everyone’s emotions are presented, the discussion the next day is restarted … When they cannot cover up, they will consider it carefully; when they cannot make mistakes, the problem will be resolved.
Although Taxi proudly reprimanded this practice of using alcohol to achieve the truth as primitive and barbaric, the ancient Romans and Greeks rely on these functions seriously.Indeed, although drunk reveals the "true" self, although it is ancient and common, perhaps the most famous is the Latin Invinoveraster expressed, "vomit the truth after drinking."This perception between honesty and drunk can be traced back to the ancient Greeks. For them, the combination of "wine and truth" is self -evident."Inappropriate soberness is considered to be highly suspicious," Ian Gatti pointed out. "Some skills, such as speeches, can only exercise when they are drunk. Sober people are cold and ruthless -they are talkingI will think deeply before and be careful about what I say, so … I don’t really care about their themes. "A sentence in Plato’s" Drinking Articles "declares" wine and children reveal the truth "-This is very convincingPowerful insight, because the damaged PFC of the drunk person is similar to the children’s PFC.
Because they are drunk, they come directly from their hearts, so they have attracted more attention than self -exchanges from cunning, control and computing in history.In ancient Greece, the vow after wine was considered particularly sacred, reliable and powerful.The Vikings also gave a nearly amazing respect to the vows made from the sacred "promise cup" (a lot).In the Elizabeth era and Stuart’s England, the public statement was suspicious unless they were accompanied by bartender.
Regarding the function of exposing the truth and strengthening trust, my favorite interpretation is a fictional story, which comes from the TV series "Game of Thrones".In a concentration of the famous "Red Wedding", the two hostile clan apparently overcome the differences and agreed to unite to fight the common enemy.As humans are commonplace, this cooperation agreement is celebrated and strengthened through a banquet and drunk banquet.In the carnival, a servant began to pour more wines for Lord Bolton. Lord Bolton was a very cunning character, but he covered the wine glass with his hands.When he was drunk, he asked him why he didn’t drink, and Polton answered simply: "The wine makes me feel slow." "This is the point!" The other party answered happily.Indeed, this is the point.As any "Game of Thrones" fans know, Lord Lord Bolton is a typical rebelist, and he keeps his head awake, so that he can murder all the drunk "friends" coldly.The lesson of the story is: Pay close attention to the people who do not respect.
Stills of "Game of Thrones".
Alcohol is the most commonly used technological means to tell the truth, but it is quite worthy of fun that in areas without alcohol, other anesthesia products have exchanged the same functions instead of it.The earliest European explorer reported to the Pacific Islands said that they were welcomed at the Kawa -centered banquet and were also evaluated at the banquet.To this day, Fiji rural lawyers will not start reviewing before all the people present have drank enough Kava until they were excited.Similarly, in the forestry and Pingyuan native tribes in North America, the hostile chief resolved the dispute, that is, through the "Calumet" (or "Peace Smoke"), later in the Western Hollywood film, it was presented.However, in the re -creation of these movies, they obviously missed these fantasy smokes that are strongly excited."The custom stipulates that if one party provides a peaceful smoke fight and the other party accepts it, the behavior of smoking together will make any agreement sacred and inviolable," American religious historian Robert Fuller pointed out. "People believe that any violation of thisNo one in Xie Xie can’t escape the punishment of fairness. "
In fact, if there is no alcohol, other chemical anesthesia is used to fill the same function. This fact is to oppose any powerful evidence of any hijacking or residual theory.Although they do not understand the knowledge of modern neuroscience or social psychology, the cultures of ancient and present, and the culture around the world have faintly realized that the personal thoughts of sober, rational, and well -calculated are the obstacles of social trust.This is why drunkenness -usually severe drunkenness in important social occasions, business negotiations, and religious rituals -it is common.An ancient Chinese poem in the Book of Songs declares:
Zhan Zhanluus, the bandit is not good.I am tired of drinking, not drunk.
The Jewish Festival of the Jewish people is to commemorate the MORDECAI to defeat Harman who is trying to destroy the Jews. It also requires the celebrities to drink drunk, so that they cannot distinguish "Harman’s curse" and "the bottom of the bottom bottom" and "the bottom bottom.The difference between changes is blessed. "
Just like shaking hands to indicate that we have not carried weapons, collective drunk enables us to relieve cognitive armed forces in the case of others.Wait until the Chinese banquet has ten tours, or the last round of wine that Greece will drink, or the end of the Pudong Festival, the PFC of the participants has basically rest completely, completely exposing that it is unprepared in cognition.When Henry Kissinger said to Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, "I think if we drink enough Moutai wine, we can solve any problems." He thought of this social function of wine.Therefore, it has played a key role in helping humans overcome cooperation that is generally existed in social life, especially in large -scale society.In order to get rid of skepticism and suspicion, our cunning consciousness needs to be temporarily paralyzed, and the healthy dose of chemical anesthesia is the fastest, most effective, and most pleasant way to achieve this goal.

Vomiting and interpersonal bond
Socially focus on trust.Therefore, it is not surprising that alcohol has always been a strong symbol of social cooperation and harmony.In ancient Mesopotamia, the unique shape of the beer barrel was usually a symbol of social interaction.The ritual rally in ancient China, whether it is for the harmony between people, or the harmony between the living and the ancestors, is surrounded by alcohol organizations. The ceremonial utensils are mainly exquisite bronze wine.In an ancient song, he cheerfully announced that "the ghosts are drunk!", Praising the ancestors’ benefit, and the harmony established between the living and the deceased.Banquets and wine clubs gathered strangers from all over the world and the entire history, united the clan of the loss, calmed the dispute, and promoted the establishment of a new society.For example, our modern word Bridal (wedding) comes from ancient English Bryde Alu or Bride Ale (literally translated as "bride’s malt beer").New bond.
Anthropologist Dwight Heath is a pioneer of studying alcohol society. He pointed out that the original isolated individuals need to get along with each other, whether it is a sailor in the port, the logging workers who have just come out of the woods, or the salonThe denim gathered in, alcohol, has a vital contact function.The World Industry Workers’ Alliance (iWW) is a union in the early 20th century. It needs to solve a serious public interest problem: to allow workers with doubts of different races, different industries and backgrounds to put on hold their narrow personal interests and target capital for capitalThe owner’s high -risk collective negotiations form a united front.They depend on drinking a lot of alcohol, as well as the degree of dependence of music and singing, reflected in their most well -known nickname today, "Wobblies", which is likely to refer to them from one salon to another salon.Look.These drunk men who sang loudly, the motto of the motto is "harm to one person is harm to everyone".Important concessions.
In many cultures, epic drinking carnival is also used for military purposes.In the Middle Ages of the Celtics, Anglo-Saxon, and the Germans, regular large-scale wines will help to connect soldiers with their monarchs, and exchange of alcohol is a powerful symbol of loyalty and promise.We mentioned above that although George Washington defeated them while the Heissen army was drunk, he regarded alcohol as an important part of the army’s spirit, so he urged parliament to establish public brewing plants to maintain a fledgling US army.Reserve and drink.In 1777, the Frederickness of Prussia’s Frederic Great was dangerous to a danger to him -the behavior was that someone drank coffee instead of beer:
I noticed that the number of coffee in my subordinates has increased, and it has been disgusting.Everyone is drinking coffee, which must be prohibited.My subordinates must drink beer.His Majesty grew up by beer, as well as his ancestors and officers.Many battles are won by soldiers who drink beer.
Other chemical anesthesia has also been used to create a strong social bond required by the army.A Spanish missionary who had arrived in the New World in the early days pointed out that some indigenous groups used Pealt before the war."This prompted them to fight regardless of fear, thirst or hunger," he reported. "And they said it can protect them from all dangers."Driven by psychedelic drugs, the names of the scary assassins in ancient Persia comes from the anesthesia they draw on the spirit of fighting -Hashish cannabis.
A common cross -cultural model is that drinking is more men, not women.In the culture where men and women drink, men often drink more.Physiological factors are almost one of the reasons.On average, men are larger, so they need more alcohol than women to achieve the same psychological effect.However, a bigger factor may be that in the traditional patriarchal society, men are the main participants of public and political life. Faced with the dilemma of cooperation with potential hostile strangers, men often come forward.For example, in the contemporary indigenous society of the Andes, anthropologists Justin Jennings wrote: "There are more relationships between men and drinking than women. Although men and women drink alcohol, the relationship between men and other men is confirmed by drinking.. He can keep his alcohol that marks that he is a man, and confirm the friendship and agreement through alcohol, to recognize the relationship between relatives. "In this way, the way Kama men drink alcoholism. They often drink the degree of unconsciousness to enhance their social unity and overcome interpersonal conflicts.Friends who have vomited together are real friends.
Stills of "Alcohol Plan".
This is why strangers who first arrive are usually welcomed by a lot of drinks.Successfully spending an alcoholic night may be the fastest way to be accepted in a new social environment.Humanologist William Madsen conducted a field inspection in rural Mexico, and was surrounded by the angry crowd when taking a photo of local religious rituals.A group of men who were drunk with agave, holding him on the wall with a machete. The reason why he could not die is that thanks to the elderly, he is also the residents of the neighboring village he have always lived in.The elder announced: "Release our friends. He is not a stranger. He drank our agave wine." The machete immediately lifted up, and everyone sat down to drink agave.Share alcohol expand the circle of belonging and trust.One thing is worthy of fun. Maybe in our oldest legal document "The Hammurabi Code", there is a torture of the tavern owner, which is to force them to explain their conspiracy in the tavern.The deep cohesion of alcohol is exactly the useful tools of ambitious rebels or revolutionaries.
Therefore, not sharing alcohol with others or rejection of others’ toast is a serious rejection or hostility, and may even be condemned.Jenning reported a myth of the early 17th century, telling a Peruvian god appeared at one of their banquets as a poor, hungry stranger to test the virtue of a community.Only one person noticed him and welcomed him with a glass of wine.When God finally appeared, when the selfish crowd at the banquet was angry, only this person was spared.Similarly, alcohol that does not accept it is usually considered serious insult.For example, in the early modern Germany, "the wine glass provided in the rejection of the fellowship is an insult to honor. It may promote people from all levels of German society to pull swords and sometimes bring deadly consequences."If you refuse a glass of agave in the US border tavern, it may also bring the same terrible consequences.
Because people generally believe that the trust and the strength and sincerity of the bonds established with alcohol, the promise that rejected wine or beer confirmed is an extremely powerful betrayal.Archaeologist Piotr Michalowski reports a very unpleasant example of ancient Somel. It was narrated in a complaint letter to a king.People named Akin-Am⁃ar kept in touch:
"Isn’t Ekin-Almar, a person of my enemy? Isn’t he also the enemy of his Majesty? Why is he still favored by his Majesty? Once, that person stayed with His Majesty, he drank from the cup, raisedGet it (salute). Her Majesty the King included him into his own, giving him dresses, and putting him [etiquette] headwear.Hostility! "It is indeed a powerful image.It is impossible to imagine more intense insults than toasting by defecation.This is just a simple metaphor, destroying the entire symbol system established by rituals and semi -ritualized gift exchange.
This is of course a way to turn toasting.Ekin Amal may be able to convey the same information by staining his fancy headdress, but the really powerful information is that he is aimed at the bond established by co-drinking.
In many (not most) society, drunk not only helps to establish a connection between people who may be hostile, but also regarded as a collective adult ritual, which is a test of a person’s personality.The ability to control wine means more common self -discipline and even more moral signs.There is a sentence in "The Analects of Confucius" very much. At the end of how picky about what he eats and drinking, Confucius said, "but wine is infinite, not messy."Confucius can drink smoothly without rudeness. This is the sign of the sage.Socrates is also praised because he can still keep his mind soberly like any orthodox Athens in the marathon -style drinking activity.Plato wrote: "He will drink any amount he needs to drink, and will never get drunk." In fact, for the Greeks, he can drink, a night of drinking a drink hosted by the leader who controls the rhythm of drinking drinking.It is "a means of testing a person -a soul test gold stone, compared with other serious damage caused by moral defects, drinking is cheap and harmless."
Sinaram Sarah Mattice observed that ancient China and ancient Greece both required adults (at least adult men) to be drunk together and hoped that this would be their own restraint and virtue in a stressful situation.Chance.In ancient China, "not drunk is often regarded as an insult, but on the other hand, a person should not become hasty, because that will affect the maintenance of respect for respect."As for ancient Greece’s drinking:
Under the leadership of a sober drinking host -and supervise the personality of the people present -citizen has the opportunity to test themselves with the desire of happiness when self -control is at the lowest point.By drinking and putting shame in the situation of temptation, citizens can develop their resistance to non -controlling behaviors to cultivate their character.In addition, because … drinking is a citizen’s activity, it also provides opportunities for the virtues of citizens.

If participating in common drinking will weaken your ability to lie, increase your sense of connection with others, and provide a test of your potential personality, it is not difficult to understand, and people who do not drink alcohol will inevitably be suspected."Drinking Water" is abused in ancient Greece.Since ancient times, the toasting ceremony that refused to participate in frequently held at a traditional Chinese banquet is an unimaginable rude behavior, and it will immediately push you to a civilized society.Today, in the culture around the world, there is still a close connection between drinking and friendship.Anthropologist Gerald Mars conducted research on the interaction between a group of dock workers in Newfoundland. As a result, "In the early days of the field investigation, I asked a group of dock workers, why someone got married, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, young, and young.’He doesn’t drink -this is what I mean by the lonely person’. ".
In the culture of other anesthesia replacement of alcohol, we also found similar models.In Fiji, John Shaver and Richard Sosis observed that people who drink the most kava wines have reputable in the community.The closer.Men with Kanikani, a man who is a kind of skin disease caused by excessive consumption), is respected and regarded as a real "village man". Everyone trusts them to support the village values and meet social expectations.The two anthropologists believe that the social and reproductive benefits obtained by these people must exceed more obvious physiological costs. You know, these costs are considerable.Instead, men who suppress drinking or completely avoid the Cava ceremony will be suspected and excluded from many public activities.
Classic scientist Robin Osborne’s thinking about the ancient Greece’s drinking well summarized the social function of drunk:
Drunk is not just to give themselves happiness and tolerate others.Drunk also revealed the real individual and united the group.Drunk people … face how they arrange the world and where they belong to that world; those who can fight and die, who dare to reveal the wine and what they cherish, have established trust in each otherEssence
It is in this background that we can understand the comments of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s eye -catching Apple’s role in early American society: "If the land is only, the land is onlyMake useful corn and potato, and suppress this ornamental and social fruit, humans will be more lonely, less friends, less support. "Apple flower provides beauty, apple wine and apple spirits.In addition to the obvious use of ancient corn and potatoes, Emerson also found a more delicate beauty and intoxication function. For our social apes, this is as important as bread and potatoes.

Why is there no video conference
Complete replacement of business travel
In 1889, Confucian Versena predicted that "voices fax telegram" -the is essentially a dedicated video conference device. He believes that by 2889 (!) It will become commonpin -business travel will be outdated.We don’t have to wait for 1,000 years.
In 1968, with the launch of the "Video" of the US Telephone Telegram (AT & T), the video conference became a real technology.In the middle of the first ten years of the 21st century, the emergence of Skype and other video conference technologies brought the voice fax telegram into every family with the Internet.Each progress of the remote conference ability is accompanied by new forecasts for business travel.However, the fact is that at least before the global crowns in 2020, business travel has been steadily increasing and has not decreased.Considering the cost, trouble and physiological costs of travel (especially when crossing different time areas), this is really puzzling.When you just call or Zoom, why would you fly from New York to Shanghai to meet with potential business partners?
In my opinion, the mystery of business travel is fundamentally integrated with why we like drunk.Unless we realize that they are responding to the potential issues of cooperation, neither of them has practical significance.For simple and low -risk long -range transactions, such as buying a book or a sweater online, if my trading opponent proves that it is not trustworthy, I am happy to resort to the ebay or Amazon arbitration mechanism.However, if I have long -term and complex investment with a company in Shanghai, in this case, the management is chaotic, the corner reduction, the knife behind the back, or a simple fraud.People are trustworthy.Yes, we will sign a contract.However, even the most comprehensive and clear agreement will still have unpleasant matters and allow different explanations.I want to know who I am cooperating with any more complicated things to buy buttons or zippers at one time.
In order to evaluate the credibility of new potential collaborators, one of the most effective mechanisms invented by humans is a long drunk banquet.As we have seen, from ancient China to ancient Greece to the Oceania, there were no negotiations without a large amount of chemical anesthesia, nor did they sign any treaty.In modern times, we can use all remote communication technologies. What really surprised us is that before we can rest assured to sign our name on the dotted line, we need a good, old -fashioned, face -to -face drinking banquet.

This is not a stupid desire: as we see, people who are damaged by PFC are more trustworthy.We have discussed how the declined PFC function makes it more difficult for a person to lie.Perhaps it is surprising that it has the opposite effect on the detection of lies.In fact, when we focus on the sincerity of the assessment statement, it is more difficult for us to give accurate results.When we are distracted by other stimuli -for example, trying to attract the attention of the bartender or taste appetizer -and then think about whether the person we talk to it is honest, we will find a better lie.Our unconscious self is better than "us". When our consciousness is temporarily locked into its room, unconsciousness is in the best state.Alcohol can reveal "true self" -the ancient beliefs indeed contain a certain truth.The reduction of cognitive control has brought less suppression. In this state, the dominant tendency of PFC control may be released.For example, in the absence of a strong context inducement, people who usually tend to attack others are usually more aggressive when they are drunk.On the phone, you sound like a good person, but before I really believe in this judgment, I better drink two cups of Chabuli with you in person, and then evaluate you.
The effect of face -to -face drinking is not limited to the business world.The informal intelligence exchange alliance between European spy agencies began in the late 1970s and is still developing. It is now called Maximator.This is the name of the local Double Bock Beer supplied by the Bar in the suburbs of Munich. The alliance can be established and originally thought of beer.It is hard to imagine that spies from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands overcome mutual suspicion, and exposed confidential information on coffee and desserts.It is likely that these spies depend on the government’s sponsorship and drink, because the European government and institutions tend to treat alcohol as a component of normal human society.
As mentioned earlier, international academic cooperation began in our university. It encountered more challenges: As far as drinking is concerned, Canadians are almost the same as Americans, and the Federal Regulations of Canada prohibit the use of research funds to buy wine.In my opinion, this constitutes a serious obstacle to scientific progress.The task of my colleagues and my colleagues is to establish a research partnership between different countries and different disciplines. We have only seen one response: we have to raise personal funds to drink.As a person who has been running these large international projects in the past ten years, I can say responsiblely that if there is no face -to -face social, delicious food and wise dose of liquid neurotoxin intake, we are almost impossible for usCooperate with potential competitors.
Confirm the positive function of alcohol -guided face -to -face social society. At present, the fierce debate on professional travel and its carbon emissions should also be inspired.Some climate activists have recently promoted the end -of -face meeting. They (correctly) believe that this is a huge source of greenhouse gas emissions, and (not convincing) insisting on face -to -face interaction can be simply replaced by virtual interaction.Of course, in our era, the Internet is connected at a speed speed and almost everywhere. The conference call has become a feasible choice for scholars and other professionals. In this case, fly over half of the earth and sit in the room to listen to a speech or surroundMeeting at the table seems to be a waste.If the meeting is only the exchange of abstract information, it seems that there are indeed more effective ways to achieve this goal.However, these discussions do not understand all the reasons why people participate in the meeting correctly.

That’s right, the cutting -edge research conveyed in formal talks is important, although many of the main points of the speech are now broadcast live on Twitter by other listeners.However, maybe the same important thing is the face -to -face social network, promoting this social network is by no means a little waste of taxpayer’s money or unnecessary tragedy to the earth.A unique wisdom and benefit provided by the face -to -face academic or professional conference is to build connections, conduct brainstorms, and learn ideas. These often occur in the gap between eating and drinking coffee.End, alcohol appears.Innovation is the lifeblood of the modern economy and the core of academic progress.Remote video conferences are reasonable, cheap, and environmentally friendly -not to mention that during the new crown epidemic of this book, I can still save lives -but even the extended Zoom meeting will not allow the participantsNew research blueprints are outlined on the napkin.
The happy time of video conferences has begun to become more popular as an attempt to capture the energy of real scenes.However, in different continents and different time areas, isolated individuals adjust their own single Martini wine. They must endure video failure and bad audio. Even if there is the best Internet connection, the response time will appear delicately.But the delay of disappointment makes it difficult for everyone to target the time to interrupt or transfer the topic.The slight sense of interpersonal communication catalyzed by alcohol is naturally born in the face of a bar and cafe face -to -face social relationship. Even the best video conference is just its bad alternative.Share music experience, pleasant chat, relaxed conversation, higher endorphin levels and less suppression, this is a situation that any technology we currently have.If a horrible ritual is only for webcasting, the cultural pressure of the Ge Baker Stone Array will not appear.In the era of more and more interpersonal interaction, when we think about what we get and what we have lost, we cannot ignore this when thinking about what we get and what we lose.
The popularity of the new crowns has led the government to block multiple areas of public life. A editorial published in early 2020 states that the economic scale of the post -new crown virus era will be much smaller and productivity is much lower."In a world where the office is open but the bar is not open," it pointed out. "The quality difference between life feelings is at least as important as the decline in GDP." This is of course correct, but it is also important that we must pay attention to the absence of the bar.It has a direct impact on the quality of life and actual productivity.For example, I dare to predict that assuming other factors in the given field remain unchanged. Within one or two years after canceling the annual meeting of the face, innovation or new patents will decrease compared with previously, and it will not rise until the restoration of social and drinking.If the bar and cafe are the furnace of innovation, then we should see that when they are replaced by invalid conference calls, collective creativity will stagnate, just like the US sake ban in the United States in the early 20th century.
People who work at home, people who interact with colleagues through video chat, email and SMS, not only feel more alienated and disconnected, but also may experience less creative insights, lack of twists and turns, unpredictable stimuli, so it is more difficult to experience and innovate.Sexual discussion.Video conferences may be more effective, but efficiency -the core value of Apollo -is an enemy of disruptive innovation.Bar not only makes us feel better; if it is used properly, in the long run, it will make us work better.
Gathering people together, surrounding them with a variety of sensory stimuli, dispersing their attention, allowing them to slow down the PFC with anesthesia slowly and stable.Methods, otherwise we will only follow the goal orientation, self -control, and self -interest center, focus on tasks and alien each other.If Zoom can create a feature, you can synchronize the lighting and music at home with the potential business or research partner’s family office, and at the same time attract you two with a strong cranial magnet, which is great.However, while we wait for the ZOOM development team to implement this upgrade, drinking together in a relaxed and face -to -face environment is still our oldest, simplest and most effective cultural technology.
