When we go back to 90’s when the cable networks were introduced in India, people who’re accustomed to watching one program per week on DD, were habituated to two soap operas a day. In that time, the TVs were a great source of distraction to people just as smartphones are doing the job of a TV these days. When I say TV, it won’t be limited to a CRT monitor or a big OLED. But it’s the programs you watch in them. Because when you research, you’ll find that there’s a patent on Monitors for nervous system manipulation through its electromagnetic field.

It means the programs you watch can interrupt your daily routine by making you unfocused on anything, by giving cues. So, it’s always a wiser option to skip watching any kind of no-choice programs relayed on air and its a smart choice to opt for internet as you’ll have choice to, what to watch and what not to watch. Here there is a sect of people, instead of big TVs, they are habituated to stick to their phones, only to watch the very TV programs and news. So they turn their phones into TVs. In reality, your phone is not a TV. It’s a computer. Did you know when NASA put the first man on the moon in the ’60s, it has a computer that it can’t even match up with your smartphone today?

Kids are the primary victims of these devices these days that their parents, to escape the responsibility of babysitting, keeping a phone in their child’s hands with a program on. You see? You’re giving an advanced, radiation-emitting and nervous system manipulating device to an innocent child, it’s that very same device that the 60’s rocket scientists didn’t have. So, these days, people talk a lot about reading this or that philosophy but utterly surrender to their habit of excessive screen time, instead of doing research, they simply watch TV, either on a small screen or a Big Screen. It’s always a wise choice to reduce screen time before sleep. And turning your device off while unnecessary.
