Since my brain has been experiencing different things thanks to daily usage I have noticed some changes. I’m thinking more and blogging less
Probably not actually. I’m blogging quite a bit. Every time I write a post I worry that family members will read it to misinterpret the good and notice the negative. There are definitely negatives to being a drug user of this type.
My attention span has shortened rather than increased. I have the ability to focus but I just don’t feel like focusing and working. Luckily there isn’t much work to do so I can ponder the mysteries of the universe.
It’s a little frustrating but such ponderings will not really be noticed. I didn’t tour the world on a lecture circuit. I didn’t get more than 70 followers on youtube. Nobody’s really listening to me whether I’m genius or idiot.
The interesting thing is that the world seems to be in a similar situation. People aren’t watching TV anymore. They’re watching tick tock clips of a minute or less. The new celebrities for people 25 and under are YouTubers and social media influencers. Mr beast as an example probably makes more money than most television celebrities.
A hit show today has a lot fewer viewers than a hit show 20 years ago when there were only a few channels and no real alternative
When I turn on the TV to watch a movie on a weekend or TV show, I find myself picking up my phone and splitting my attention between the show and fabulous looking women or creative people educating me about the world in one minute or less.
After a while I often find that I wasn’t watching the TV as much as I should so I give up on that to continue through Instagram and YouTube tik Tok. I think a lot of other people are doing the same especially those who are under 30 and have grown up accepting that a 6-inch screen it’s fine.
Web pages have become less useful and hardly a necessity for companies. People are on their phones and work computers are the only ones running Windows these days. You can actually exist without one and I often go a week without touching mine which would have been unheard of two years ago
It’s quite fascinating and I’m excited to see how the universe changes in the next short while. Now ai has entered with a bang. So many things are changing faster than usual but also slowly. It’s just fun to notice. I’m happy being a spectator of life, the universe, and everything
.. update. I forgot I’ve been constipated for a while and that always has an effect on my mood and health. That may go away now that I’ve pooed.
