The information era, where a push of a button can dominate your energy and your day. Where it's a challenge now to read anything more than 240 characters. Go to your phone settings and review the applications that consumes the bulk of your battery life. Are they meaningful?

Our social platforms are great tools for immediate access to information. Consequently, we overlook the detriment of being online. Scrolling until our thumbs are rewarded with a spicy burn from an overheated phone screen. There may be something we are not seeing or choose not to see. A force that manipulates the people while presenting it in the form of “personalization”, “customization", "socialization", and other chippy words that end with “zation”.

Devilish algorithms keeps tabs on us like we are test subjects then sell our information for a warm dollar. Are we playing in the hands of some force? Are we dancing to the beat of a hypnotic drum? Without digital awareness how can we keep our minds fixated on what's important?
