Being Gamed by our Devices
We are being played - gamed as they say - by tech companies acting as our friends, guides, advisors and servants. Don't be fooled by conveniences and tones of assistance. You're being played, just like in Vegas. Your emotions are being played just like in Orlando. You are long-conned just like in Manhattan. Let's talk about how tech games our biology.
‘Mirror Neurons’ are debated, but tech and gaming companies know exactly how to manipulate our biology with counterfeit oxytocin. Our brain chemistry is altered by video, social and media addiction in the midst of rapidly accelerating change lead by ai within every mobile device across the IOT.
Think: “See that lion over there that’s about to eat your wife?
I got your back brother.
Let me make an appointment for you.”
Big Tech Games our Oxytocin Addiction
Oxytocin: a hormone that underlies trust is triggered by ‘LIKES’ and PAGERANK as an antidote to depressive feelings and boost for hope and optimism.
“is a powerful hormone that regulates social interaction and sexual reproduction, playing a role in behaviors from maternal-infant bonding and milk release to empathy, generosity, and orgasm. It plays a huge role in bonding.”
Our Brains are Being Played by Tech
Dopamine: “is a neurotransmitter that helps control the brain’s reward and pleasure centers. Dopamine also helps regulate movement and emotional response, and it enables us not only to see rewards, but to take action to move toward them.” -Psychology Today
Tech company algorithms are designed to make money by knowing us better than we do ourselves. We trust them to tell us the truth. They play us by collecting our data and biasing our choices and clicks through recommendations – not by revealing what’s missing in their data or what’s ‘NOT on the MENU’.
