🗿Plastic brain

We all know how man-made computer algorithms rule human behavior, particularly on social media platforms.

Employees at these companies designed artificial intelligence to exploit human attention by appealing to whatever emotions offer them the most leverage.

Desire, fear, outrage, envy.

But your mind has an algorithm too.

Your patterns of thought are largely the product of conditioning, similar to what’s happening online.

You get more of what you “like”.

So if you don’t like the way your life is right now, chances are, you need to pay attention to different things.

And the good news is you can actually do that.
