Some years ago a young relative spent a whole day at my parents house. He had a smartphone with him and installed on it sas an app that just blared out short clips och pictures and sounds of popular music. It was on for hours and the young relative was completely hyper-focused. It was like there was some trance going on.

By a coincidence I found some critical texts about cults practicing meditation and how the goal was to distract participators from reality testing. To sneek doctrine in when the trance was going on.

Is sociala media apps really just only a way to trance people to make them more receptive for commercil advertisment?

Has not that always been the purpose of all broadcast media?

Always thought media were fair and balanced. ;)

There is a discussion from time to time that it is not good for kids to look at screens many hours a day. What a great market to make kids fall into trance to look at commercials. Future customers.
