Social Media and the Swamp of Anxiety


Dr. Cal Newport's TED-X talk "Quit Social Media" is a must see video (13 min.), where he makes 3 arguments of why to stay off social media--and, he emphasizes in the 3rd one of those arguments that the worst is the rise in "anxiety disorders" (diagnosed or not diagnosed) that come with such use of this technology--a technology that is not essential to "deep work" and value and success in the society.

Challenging the Tendency of Elitism and "Grandiosity" in Movements

It was with some grief I found out a few years ago that Mariana Salcido, a signed 'member' of Fearlessness Movement, a loose member of Fearism philosophy group and curious advocate for The Fearology Institute, passed away suddenly. I heard this through another colleague who was communicating with her, and a family member informed him of her passing. She was relatively young, a mother, and left behind a lot of people…

Simple mind leads to inevitable reductionist outlook for fearlessness package to the masses (creating the longest subject line in the process)

So hi all,   Arguably, i am the most uneducated...most simple member of the Fearlessness Movement...perhaps this affords me some licence to roam a little, and learn through trial and error rather than serious consideration of well researched articles. This will always be my disclaimer...that is, i am certainly not the brightest...but i do mean well. I really want things to be better in the world, and this fearlessness project is where I have set up my stall, because intuitively for me, this is…

The relationship between perception of threat and the experience of fear

 Hello... I have been working on a theory of consciousness and the experience of fear forms a important part of my understanding of consciousness.
