Managing our Sense Organs to Fight Aging



Why is it important to keep our sense organ in good condition to fight aging

Our brain is just like a computer. In the case of computers, information about the world is collected by using a keyboard, a touch-screen, a camera or other similar sensors. It is flashed to the central processing unit via wires and then stored safely in the memory. When necessary, information is processed and then transmitted to the outside via screens, printers, etc. The same basic mechanism is true for the human brain. Information is gathered by the eyes, ears and other senses, sent to the brain through nerves and stored in appropriate areas of the brain. When necessary, the brain dispatches this information through speech, expression, actions, etc.

You don’t need to be Bill Gates to realize that if the keyboard, mouse or touch-screen is damaged, then it would be impossible to feed information into the central computer. The retrieval of information would then be impossible because the details wouldn’t be there in the first place.

The same is true with the brain. If the eyes, ears and other sense organs are not in tip-top condition, then the information fed to the brain will be less than perfect. It follows that if you wish to have a good memory and competent brain, you need to make sure that your information-collecting systems, ie, your senses, are in good working order. Open your eyes, unblock your ears, deploy your taste buds, activate your nose, experience your sense of touch, and gather, gather, gather information from the world around you like a dry sponge soaking up water.
