Mass Information is Bad For You

What good is a mass of information unless it serves us some good?
 
We collect and curate endlessly and make errors and correct from day to day assimilating ideas and crafting a web for ourselves to see the world.
 
Little do we know that little is real or how little it can serve us well. So we dash about further confused further and further caught in the web we have crafted for ourselves, deeper we go and deeper we struggle until eventually we lose our energy and die there alone inside our web.
 
  • Social media.
  • News.
  • Gossip.
  • Entertainment/Infotainment.
  • Emails, messages, mail.
  • Advertisements.
 
The list goes on and on. We are creatures of information. Our minds have becomes sponges, evolved to process and distil. We are information machines. Little different from machines themselves.
 
Why is this so? Why have we become addicted to the information? Is it cultural evolution? A means to survive? The more information and quantifiable evidence we possess the more likely we are to survive.
 
But the million-dollar question is how much progress and how much information is too much? And are we products of our culture and our mechanistic designs to curate and propagate ideas and information or are we masters of it?
 
It seems the balance is fine as of late, and in my humble opinion we have lost control of ourselves, the direction of our incalculable large societies and the general purpose of our technology and devices that are proposed to serve is well. And conversations of such a nature and of such points is hugely overdue.
