Malware of consciousness


EVOLUTION does not take place in days and months but it takes years and centuries to reach the state of a human maintenance stage.

The civilized and developed countries consists of humans and not any rest of creatures but how we, Asians and living in Pakistan are still way behind in our own country and same way while living abroad we sound really smart and obedient.

Let’s discuss some factors, elements, stages and models that are crucial and critical for healthy society.

Malware (short for “malicious software”) is a file or code, typically delivered over a network, that infects, explores, steals or conducts virtually any behaviour an attacker wants.

And because malware comes in so many variants, there are numerous methods to infect computer systems and consciousness defines as the state of being aware of and responsive to one’s surroundings.

Factors that affect behaviour are physical factors – age, health, illness, pain, influence of a substance or medication.

Personal and emotional factors – personality, beliefs, expectations, emotions, mental health. Life experiences – family, culture, friends, and life events. What the person needs and wants. Society is one of the most integral parts of our life.

Among various infrastructures of life society too is one of most under it. … Hence, in order to live the life in a very comfortable way, society is the most suitable food, shelter, and clothes are essential for a person to live.There are 4 Important Types of Societies Type # 1. Tribal Society: Tribal societies are completely united by the kinship bonds.

Type # 2. Agrarian Society: An agrarian society, or agricultural society, is any community whose economy is based on producing and maintaining crops and farmland, Type # 3. Industrial Society: Between the 15th and 16th centuries, a new economic system emerged that began to replace feudalism.

Capitalism is marked by open competition in a free market, in which the means of production are privately owned. Type # 4. Post-Industrial society: Post-industrial societies are societies dominated by information, services and high technology more than the production of goods

There are five basic components of the human societies: population, culture, material products, social organizations and social institutions.

These components may either deter or promote social change. Essential elements of a good society; Security. Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security and is entitled to realization, through a national effort.

Affinity, unity, responsibility, friendliness and love, cooperation, obedience of rules and regulations. Economic growth only comes from increasing the quality and quantity of the factors of production that consist of four broad types: land, labour, capital, and entrepreneurship;

The five stages of change are pre-contemplation (to aware), contemplation (begin to know), preparation (think to act), action practice the desired behaviour), and maintenance (work to sustain the behaviour change)– Leaving a thing or an attitude and adopting another by a society is called social change.

But before heading towards solution we need to learn about the social & economic factors contribute in any county’s health rankings we look at:1) Education2) Employment3) Income4) Family & social support5) Community safety.

To understand how human society evolves; we need to understand onion ring model: Behaviour is the outer layer.

Easy to see, behaviour can be measured simply by watching someone. But behaviour is also easy to change. Indeed our behaviour changes from situation to situation. The next layer comprises knowledge and skills.

The next layer of the onion is values and beliefs. Our values develop slowly overtime in response to the experiences that we encounter. Values take months or years to change.

And to understand this layer requires considerably more effort. Simply asking someone rarely works. Most of us would find it very hard to articulate our personal values and beliefs. Finally, at the heart of the onion we have personality and ability.

Genetics plays a part in establishing these traits. But during adolescence, as our brains are developing, our personality and our cognitive ability continue to vary considerably.

Then, as we reach our twenties our brain development ceases and our personality and intellectual capability essentially set. After that it takes a major traumatic event to have any impact on our core characteristics.

Measuring personality and ability is difficult because it is so masked by the other layers. It requires sophisticated psychometric assessment to fully measure an individual’s personality and ability.

Our personalities define what values and beliefs we are willing to accept or adopt. Cognitive ability defines how quickly we can learn new skills and knowledge, and how good we are at applying them to new situations.

And all of these things have a huge impact on how we behave. So, whilst measuring how someone is behaving right now is easy, it is a poor predictor of how they are likely to behave in the future.

To protect from malware of consciousness; policy makers need to build mechanisms to build healthy, civilized, sustainable and secure society. So each and every one has to understand and practise Nobel to build prosperous Pakistan.
