Great article about the use of social media & especially so when the media platform is multidimensional. Platforms which are based on single function topics are better in that you would only use them if interested in a single topic because they don’t absorb so much of people’s attention. Other social media sites seek to absorb all our attention & therefore take us completely out of the body. When we are completely out of the body we hand over our awareness to others to use therefore we lose free will, we give it away.
Hat tip to Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary for pointing me at this video:
Here are some words I wrote a few years ago (ok, so most of them belong to Frank Herbert, they’re taken from his fabulous Dune saga)…
I must not FB.
FB is the mind-killer.
FB is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my FB.
I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the FB has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain–
— ooooo, shiny! [This text should be invisible…]
I’ll end this post with a link to a very insightful piece by Anya Bettoney on
social media anxiety.
