TV causes ADD & Depression
Yes, there's a definite connection between attention deficit disorders and television. Both the TV programmers and advertisers want you to be constantly attentive to their messages. To do this, they cut ultra-rapidly from scene to scene. The TV image rarely remains stable for more than 1 second. That wasn't true 50 years ago, when television was in its childhood. Cameras stayed focused on the same scene for 10 to 15 seconds. It's not a coincidence that there was no ADD back in the 1950s and 1960s.
Those quick cuts are terrible for your mind, and they are HIDEOUS for your eyes. Two hours worth of TV forces your eyes to refocus every second. That'a a staggering amount of wear and tear on your eye muscles. Some kids watch 5 or 6 hours of TV every day. It's no wonder they can't adapt to a classroom which stays in focus indefinitely.
TV is also a leading cause of depression. To my mind, it's the #1 cause. Why? The programs and news shows are full of negative energy. Good news is NOT news! TV fills your mind with profoundly negative energy: hatred, violence, guilt, rage, fear, envy, jealousy, and ongoing anxiety. Only a fool would say he can watch TV and not be affected by the tsunami of negative energy that pours out of that tube.
The commercials all intend for you to feel bad about some part of yourself. Why? So that you will buy the product they offer, which, according to them, is the
only thing that will make your feel better about yourself.
So listen to your intuition, and turn off your TV. Trust me. You won't miss it. I watch no television. I will never watch television. It's the greatest scam of the last 100 years; a medium which only exists to bring viewers into the presence of advertisers; a cold and heartless medium that has done infinite damage to the World.
That's the end of my rant. You get the idea.
