In the evening, as the tea steeps, I sneak a few minutes on Twitter. Can’t linger — my brain’s boiling. Too many crazy things happening in the world of “homo sapiens.”

But giving up on Twitter? I don’t wanna either. What’s the latest buzz in the last 24 hours? Let’s peek through the keyhole. Scary, but intriguing!

By regulating my Twitter intake by brewing tea, I’m protecting myself from, well, me. Otherwise, I’d tumble down the rabbit hole for hours. I know my curiosity too well.

Five minutes are enough to gauge the temperature and spot the trend. It’s critical to know not only where the world is going, but how quickly.

So, I glance at the thermometer. “What’s up? The usual horror show? The madhouse as always? Alright, I can calmly get back to my own affairs.” Sometimes a fascinating idea even makes it onto my web.

Is there a phenomenon that does absolute good or harm? Nope, it’s a creation of the mind, simplifying thinking and shielding the Ego. But it’s only half true.

In reality, the effect of everything is tied to dosage. Who measures it? You do. Only if you own the ideas, not the other way around.

Sincerely yours,

-Alexander
