Breath of fresh air

Have you ever taken time from the forums here and came back? One can become immured with FB, TikTok, etc and form a completely new state of mind. One who is controlled almost with a pre-programmed state of mind.

A few weeks doesn't count, but a few months up to a year?

To come back here and just see the support from other random humans is breathtaking.

I hate programming.

Are you crazy? Immerse myself in the noise? To paraphrase:

"One can become immured (imprisoned) [by] FB, TikTok," CNN, FOX, MSNBC, CBS...

You want to do the opposite.
What you want to do is, as Timmothy Leary said in the 60's during the Human Be-In, "Turn on, tune in, drop out". And no, you don't need drugs to do that. Just be willing to connect with another person as a person and not a label. Don't be surprised if you meet yourself along the way.

"Throughout human history, as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are, or where we are going in this ocean of chaos, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open-mindedness; chaotic, confused, vulnerability to inform yourself."

-Timothy Leary
