Due to our increasing reliance on the Internet – for easily accessible information like Google – our brain’s natural problem-solving and memory functions are being stunted.

Back when you had to go to a physical location or read an actual book, to get the answer to questions, your brain retained the information for long periods of time. After a certain period this information will be filed (or dumped) into a drawer in the vast library of your brain for extraction should you need it again. Now, before the internet these periods of dumping was pretty far in between, retaining the information much longer for later use and extraction.
