This is a very high expected-value topic to cover- and it’s also interesting how modern people groan in annoyance whenever they hear about the concept of being drowned in entertainment. I remember around 2014 was when I first encountered the concept of instant gratification desensitization- going beyond pavlovian training, and just making the brain refuse to expect to spend time thinking about things in general. Maybe that means that 2014 was when people started to start getting tired hearing about it; I’d consider that anecdata.
Just because something is “relevant” and “oft talked about” by large numbers of shallow people and shallow info sources, doesn’t mean that it can’t break your brain.
I’m keeping this review around for open source intelligence use, since it has a lot of stuff. But, I also think this topic is so important that it’s worth being concise when covering it, since the EV of this area is so high that it’s worth maximizing communication efficiency. There’s also a lot of specialists who analyze things like social media effect on the brain, and are completely unwilling or unable to talk about some of their knowledge, which makes it even more important to make communication more efficient in the limited ways it’s possible to do so.
