I suspect the Senator and Big Tech do not realize the extent of the devastation of this addiction as the addiction is so severe, many people, particularly kids have rewired their brain to “ignore blinking cues,” among many other systemic side effects, such as increased poor-sleep patterns, anxiety, depression, suicidal-ideation-at-the-thought-of-my-parents-taking-away-my-cell-phone.
The brain is literally so focused, the eyes forget to blink. Its as if the eyes are truly glued to the screen, in some cases, as the eyes are so dry.
Hopefully, this will make an immediate impact and more electronic screens will be REMOVED from schools. That is a big step and heresy in the education world. But the devastation of excessive electronic screen use is important to quantify and discuss. What is wrong with going back to the textbooks many of us grew up with for our kids: nothing!
