Scientists have discovered the danger, which brings the Internet: media bulimia

Ученые обнаружили опасность, до которой доводит интернет: медийная булимия

Here they are — “wasted years”: it’s time to think about it, how many days of life are given daily consumption is absolutely not cost-effective for person information

Understand the absurdity of hanging out online and feel guilty about wasted time, but can’t stop the junk you consume information? If inevitably return to the status “online”, read the material.

Metabolome — disease of the 21st century, writes Clatch.

The concept of MediaMonkey is still relatively unknown, although signs of social disease has already been described by many psychologists.

Anna Odinets outlined this term is one of the first four years ago.

Metabolite comparable with well-known eating disorder. But in this case we are talking about the unconscious consumption of all kinds of information.

The origin of the term is based on the analogy between food and information hunger, which are characterized by the lack of awareness when consumed, the dependence of the absorbed products and the feeling of desolation after another “over-eating”.

Media bulimia

As noted by Anna Odinets in one of the research reports, “gluttony” readily available information leads to a revulsion from her, followed by a period of lack and self-flagellation for failure. This alternation contributes to the development of depression and psychosomatic disorders.

“This process is akin to the absorption of food. If constantly to swallow everything without chewing anything, the point of saturation is realized with a delay, showing a qualitative overload, and as a result, causing a sharp rejection and a “Bounceback reflex”.

Problems with attention gradually wrapped in attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity”.

Most strongly this disease affected the younger generation, as it often spends time in the network.

Thus, according to the project “EU KIDS ONLINE”, which studied the issue of stay of youth in the Internet, the widespread belief that network competence helps to get rid of cyber threats and overloads, is not true.

According to the remark of the candidate of pedagogical Sciences, associate Professor G. Mikhaleva, the main risk associated with social networking, chat, and information pop-UPS.

A flood of information not only surrounds us, but also requires interaction. As a result, we not only have an infinite number of sources to research any issues, but regular distracting signals in the form of advertising, business, personal notifications and spam.

As a result, we can talk about uncontrolled information flow.

Some harbors the illusion that availability of information makes us more advanced. In practice, however, it is precisely the opposite: the abundance of sources says about their credibility, and in the end we are in the era of total deception.

In addition, studies have shown that the more options of sources of knowledge we have, the more difficult it is to navigate and make choices in the world. Thus, we can speak of a time where we have the confusion and lack of concentration.

Psychologists, sociologists and philosophers have for several years warned about the “side effects” of permanent stay in the network, especially in work and study time, as well as during the holidays.

Regular, constantly changing information patterns, often opposite to each other content, whether text, video or image, make us confused, irritable and depressed.

Trying to keep up with the spirit of the times, we cease to grasp the meaning of texts, to reflect, and ultimately be deprived of the opportunity to rejoice in the comprehension and later is the ability to deeply analyze some phenomenon.

Also the habit of “reading diagonally”, typical of many users, eager to embrace the largest possible amount of information,leads to the loss of a reading culture as such, which inevitably makes us more conformal, driven and programmable, as we used to respond to simple and known to us of online signals.

Surface slide and the constant opening of new tabs, according to Odinets, is one of the symptoms of bulimia media.

The phenomenon is that often, even realizing the absurdity of the situation, many people can not stop consuming unnecessary information. Anna Odintsov says:

“Knowledge is power, information gives power, so it seems that the more information we have, the stronger, more significant we become. The question of the usefulness or quality – fades into the background … it’s Impossible to predict what will be hype in the next week, so just in case, absorbed everything.

Social networks, like Twitter only worsen the situation. Post of other that he wants fruit salad for dinner does not affect my life personally, but the fear to miss something important spur users to view a huge pile of useless information in search of something anything valuable.”

A sense of desolation, degradation, inability to focus or to make a specific choice leads to frustration, despair, depression and a temporary failure from the network.

However, after all is repeated again, almost the same pattern, that of a food addiction: users consume everything indiscriminately, I feel guilty for wasted time, but at the same time are dependent on network content and inevitably return to the status “online”.

In the opinion of the Professor of social philosophy and philosophy of history of SPbGU, S. K. Skackova, the world has become full of “weed visuality”. The doctor of philosophy, St. Petersburg state University Professor V. V. Savchuk notes that this reality generates the phenomenon of “rasmotrenie”, which “is a kind of method of self-preservation of health.”

On what measures can help to avoid MediaWiki, the expert explains:

“It is necessary to develop such a “mental immunity”, which would be critical thinking. You need to ask yourself questions: is it Worth it to me to read/watch? Do I really care?

But to cease to be dependent on the information we have does not work. All living beings are dependent on different information, and the person in the first place. The only question is the quantity that you need to adjust yourself”.
