Proverbs 28:19 He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!
Self-absorption (or following frivolity), particularly among young males, may be the greatest danger of immersion in the bath of digital amusement:
“Not only does withdrawal into electronica enable them to bypass the confusion and pain of trying to give their emotions some coherence; it also helps them avoid the realities of being a flawed, vulnerable, ordinary human being.”
One noted psychiatrist Dr. Cox doubts it is a mere coincidence that “the stratospheric increase in diagnosed learning and attention deficits” has correlated with “the advent of the electronic playground.”
When so many Americans meet the diagnostic criteria for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, it “is arguably no longer a disorder at all—it’s just the way we are.”
Yes, “we.” Not just boys but adults of both sexes, too, seem insatiably hungry for handheld devices that deliver limitless distractions.
Neuroscience demonstrates that the brain is not a finished product; neural networks can be rewired by intense and prolonged experiences.”
