Vacuum sucking up brain cells
Taking society into the bowels of hell
Creepy and crawling
Along the path to oblivion
The technology masters’
Is to make everyone reptilian

A strong sense of who we are, is what, keeps us from being, affected by someone else.
But yeah, what I’m saying is that it’s very hard to separate from that and that’s why it’s good to think and know what you want.
Agreed, but that’s not an online interaction thing. I can assure you again, that most people are very sensitive online and offline. Most people are more reactionary and are less embarrassed to be sensitive online. You probably go around insulting and insulting people daily and don’t recognize their anger or frustration until you see someone whining online about a response or a post you made.
Sensitivity is can be censoring, but it depends on what you want in life. Many people turn to the internet when they don’t feel heard, seen, respected, or cared about in their offline spaces not realizing that people are competing with them for the same reasons.
As well, I think skepticism is difficult. Many people’s opinions sound plausible—alarming, maybe. If you use pathos to talk to people and speak with your heart and your truth, it can really affect someone. How do you feel cults started pre-internet, “communist” countries started, or even Nazi Germany had so many people.
We aren’t immune to propaganda—which is still human opinion.
As of now, I’m probably going to take a break from this comment because I realize I have school work I need finished and other requirements. So sorry.😨
Sometimes, people just get too affected by others’ opinion, that the opinions of others, made them feel awful, and, that drives them to to harmful things to themselves, and/or, others, we just have to be mindful of, what is actually true, what’s opinion, and be able to separate these, the problem with online interactions, is that, when someone’ s opinions on something gets passed around too much, those opinions get taken as, truths, when they’re, just, an opinion that, most of the, online community believes, and this is, dangerous, how people have the tendencies, of, taking someone else’s opinions, as, their, truths.
I agree to an extent. Everything isn’t closely linked to the internet, but it is affected by the internet. As well, self control is appropriate, but mindfulness is a lot more useful. Some of us forget that the internet is not some cold, empty place. I can assure that you are speaking to a human—a sensitive person. Mindfulness is knowing, too, when something is hurting you online or affecting you online and knowing when to leave and not trying to take it. If you feel a distrust towards the internet, maybe you should find hobbies that aren’t on the internet. Control is how much you put into it. If you put all your attention and focus into the internet, it becomes stronger and avoidable.
The energy of your original post sounds like fearmongering and is very scary. The original poster did that. That level of cynicism is some of the reason why people act hopeless when it comes to stopping faulty human behavior. Demonizing, dehumanizing the real people in charge of this issue is not helpful and gives them power. They’re not cosmic entities or robotic demons, they’re people who really want your money for their own issue.
But back to it, it’s not hopeless to regain control. You are in your body and I assume that you are sapient and highly intelligent, try to give yourself a break. Pull away. There are things you can’t control, but there are things you can. Please, take care of yourself.
In this day and age, there’s, no way, we can, completely, eliminate our online access, as, everything we do, is, closely, linked to, the internet, but, knowing when we need to unplug, is, important, and, we need self-control, on our own internet, usage.
Not sure how I feel about this one but it doesn’t matter how I feel.
People are already obsessed. Is this what you want or something you feel you have no control over and why do you feel so hopeless to write in such a bleak future?
As well, people are only warmblooded to their blood and spawn. Most people already were terrible. I think most of us realized that after a while—some through consumption.
We all eventually, become, enslaved by technology one way or another, and we become, cold-blooded, after we start, using the technologies, addictively.
Humm? This makes me wonder about this. Anita
