I feel like I'm in a dense fog almost all of the time, and the world seems very derealized and abstract. My consciousness feels like a flow of pure ideas rather than actual sensory experience. My actions and the things I say feel automatic, "out of my control" and external to me. Anyone else feel like this?

The internet's been disastrous for human thinking.

It's not a surprise most people are either becoming or already are hysterical, ADHD morons with ever-diminishing IQs who think in memes and spurts of words and who get exhausted by anything that isn't screen-watching and whose memories are going to shit and who react to every interaction with "awkward!"

100%. The internet completely re-wired my brain in a terrible way. My attention span is shot. No sustained concentration. Can’t read for any length of time anymore.

Is there anything we can do to fix it? Take a sabbatical from work for a couple years, kayak the PNW and start living again?

no because the internet/smartphone culture has so profoundly altered everyone else's mind and the general tone/pacing of human interaction, that you will feel like an alien interacting w/ people.

it's jarring. there is this weird manic, ADD undercurrent to all human interaction now, and if you are not acculturated and habituated to it at the micro-interactional level, you will feel that either you or everyone else has gone mad when you engage them.

so the choice, anymore, is between 'unplugging' and being adequately socialized.

Dunno, but my brain definitely fucking sucks now. Age, poison, internet... Probably all of them.

Can't concentrate, lack of curiosity, general malaise. It's terrible.

It is truly awful.

I'm trying to fight to regain some of my former skills but it is difficult.

if i'm being honest, yeah

it changes how your brain works to be constantly jumping around from fleet abstraction to fleet abstraction. the real world seems slow and boring in comparison

it doesn't help that clown world is really, really gay and much of current IRL is just repulsive, which makes one feel like spending more time on the internet
