Ebrainsupport

Created by: splendiction

Pronunciation: e brain sup port

Sentence: After the heavy use of electronic devices, multimedia cell phones, greyberries and computers, dependency occurs: the human brain ceases to function independently, and requires ebrainsupport systems to think. While on ebrainsupport, an individual can produce thought, make basic decisions, access memory stored on the system. Consider Ella here: her ebrainsupport remembers her name for her and can do many things for her. Unfortunately, those who reach brain death and require ebrainsupport lose a sense of who they really are - personality becomes redundant.

Etymology: From LIFE SUPPORT and electronic = electronic brain support system.
