Tv can be a great tool for education, but it can also be brain numbing.
The internet is almost as bad, I find myself constantly swapping one for the other instead of getting out into the real world.
Sometimes I think it's an addiction.
Your Brain Waves Change When You Watch TV
In an experiment in 1969, Herbert Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person's brainwaves switched from Beta waves-- brainwaves associated with active, logical thought-- to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted to Beta waves.
I have a reoccurring dream, it is not the same dream but it is the same subject and always the same city. I have had this dream about a dozen times, and I never know where the city is located or what city it is, I only know that I am in different portions of the same city on the eve of nuclear holocaust. Last year I moved away from the city I grew up in to another city about 100 miles away. Sometime last summer I had a dream I was in the city that I am in when Armageddon is about to happen. I pulled up to this intersection with my wife in the car, it was a residential neighborhood and I knew we had to hurry because we had to get far away from civilization before the nukes fell. I warned my wife of where a certain factory was and we rounded the corner and pulled into the driveway of this house. I then woke up. A few months later I was doing a ride-along with some Paramedics in an ambulance and was riding facing rearward in the jump seat. We pulled up to this intersection going full code, the rig is just howling a cacophony of sounds and I am facing rearward decelerating fast. My mind was on the upcoming call, and trying to get rid of that feeling like I was going to vomit. In this rig there is a window on the passenger side in the foreword portion of the back directly to my left in the jump seat. I looked out that window and had instant recognition of the side yard in my dream. Every hair on my neck stood up, it scared the heck out of me, and I didn’t know what to think. We rounded the corner and as we accelerated away I could see the entire intersection in the two rear windows. I was awestruck and totally forgot I was on my way to a scene, there was this place that I had only seen in a dream. A dream of the end times. After my shift was over I went home, and told my wife. We drove to that place and went down the street the other way; in the direction I drove in my dream, and saw the house that we pulled into the driveway in the dream. The only difference was the house was a different color. Everything else was the same, this really has stuck with me and wish I knew what to make of it. Another odd aspect of all this is none of the city seems like any of the other dreams I had before the last one.

I think that this is really interesting, thanks for posting.I have been looking at Beta, Alpha, Theta (and the other one) phases in the brain over the last week or so..
Could the violence we see on the TV set whilst in Alpha affect our subconscious mind causing us to think and act upon violent impulses?

In Germany analouge broadcast television stations have gradualy been switching to digital broadcast signals since 2003 .
This switchover first took place in metropolitan areas.
In those areas however,the RF exposure in public places as well as at home continued to increase at the same time.
As a result, the continuing declining health status of children ,adolescents and adults in urban areas could not be attributed to any single cause.
On May 20th 2006, two digital broadcast television stations went on the air in the Hessian Rhoen area (Heidelstein Kreuzberg) which until recently had enjoyed rather low mobile phone radiation exposure levels .
Within a radius of more than 20 km the following symptoms
"that occured abruptly" were reported:
Pressure in the head
Inability to think clearly
Tightness in the chest
Shortness of breath
Loss of empathy
Pain in the limbs
Stabbing pain in various organs
Birds had fled the area,cats had turned phlegmatic and hardly ever went into the garden.One child committed suicide;a second tried doing it.
Over time the same unbearable symptoms showed up in other locations -most recently in Bamberg and Ashcaffenburg on November the 25th 2008.
Physicians accompanied affected people to the areas where there was no
DVB-T reception (valleys,behind mountain ranges) and witnessed how these people became symptom free after a short period of time...
