In the days when we are in the storm of information; And every morning when we wake up, we see true and false news; Our phone has become our thought, thought and brain; The scary part of the story is that we have become more forgetful than before, we are paralyzed in expressing our feelings, and we have lost our mental health in this game, and now we are worried that artificial intelligence will replace us one day in the world... the best art This is for our peace, tranquility and mental health...
The biggest document of my speech may be the news that today, after ten years, it was revealed that depression did not cause Robin Williams' suicide and that the actor was suffering from a degenerative disease of the brain system...
DLB (Lewy body dementia) is now the second brain disease after Alzheimer's, which destroys the function of the nervous system and causes hallucinations and disturbances in the mental state and movement abilities of a person.
I believe that Freddie Mur Cory may have been affected by this disease or any other artist... To cure amnesia, you have to overcome stereotypes, and maybe the first way is to return to art and get away from the life of a machine.
