The case against abundance

In the old days a small amount of sugar, a bit of gossip, and some entertainment improved well-being.  But modern diseases are diseases of abundance.  Too much sugar.  Too much gossip.  Too much politicizing nuanced issues to the point of outrage.  Too many entertainment options leading to FOMO, decision-fatigue, and filter failure.

There is such thing as too much of even good things, including water (it’s called drowning).

“Filter mastery” is a modern superpower – deliberately filtering out the majority of sensory inputs that feel beneficial but are actually putting us at dis-ease.
