How your brain is getting hacked by addictive apps like Facebook
Otherwise known around here as the "Hotel California" phenomenon.


"The thought process that went into building these applications, Facebook being the first of them, that thought process was all about...'How do we consume as much of your time and conscious attention as possible?'"

"So that means we have to give you a little dopamine hit every once in awhile because someone liked or commented on a photo or post or whatever, and that's going to get you to contribute more content, and that's going to get you more likes and comments, it's a social validation feedback loop.

It's exactly the kind of thing a hacker like myself would come up with because you are exploiting a vulnerability in human psychology.

The inventors/creators--it's me, it's Mark, it's Kevin Systrom at Instagram, it's all of these people--[who] understood this, consciously, and we did it anyway."

--Sean Parker First President of Facebook

My brain must not have been hijacked.


I rarely visit FB any more though I still do have a page.

Check the responses of the people interviewed at the recent March for our Lies march. Clearly confused about any real facts, just operating on emotion and delusion.

We've been mind fucked for thousands of years.

Life span on average wad about 30,
few could read, ir write, fewer still had ability to network, minimal social life.

The religious satanic mind fuckers ruled, still do.

They switch religion, to pr~on, games, financial, corporate hunting games... "entertainment" bullshit.

What is happening is unique in mankinds history, thanks to internet, we must not waste our time or get distracted.

Yea They will plug us in.

But, we are all capable of overriding it.

We can, we are, we're doing it.

They can never take our soul, someone you all heatd of made sure of that.

Happy Easter!

Don't let the fuckers grind you down!
