Smartphone Addiction: It’s Like Electronic Heroin

By Dr. John Reizer

Most people are well aware of the dangers associated with taking certain street and prescription drugs. We’ve all heard the horror stories about a particular person getting hopelessly addicted to cocaine or heroin. These chemicals as well as many others are, undoubtedly, very dangerous substances.

Although most users begin taking said drugs voluntarily, it doesn’t take long before they have become full blown addicts. Chemical drug dependency is a serious problem that takes many months, and in some cases many years to successfully conquer. Most people are unable to kick a chemical drug habit without the help of a fully trained medical staff.

The human nervous system is wired in such a way that when we take part in pleasurable activities, certain chemicals are released inside the brain that cause us to want to continue the pleasurable experiences. One of those chemicals is called Dopamine.

The neurotransmitter Dopamine allows us to feel very happy and the more the chemical is released inside the brain, the happier we will feel. Pleasurable experiences like eating and having sex cause Dopamine to be released inside the brain. The taking of certain drugs like heroin also causes a lot of Dopamine to be released inside the brain and this in turn causes a very euphoric state that drug users often report experiencing.

With continued drug use, the brain eventually reduces the amount of Dopamine that is released and it becomes more difficult to feel the same level of pleasure that was initially experienced by the user. In order to reach the same level of pleasure, more of the drug is required each time and the cycle goes on and on.

It is easy for most people in today’s world to understand that a chemical modality, like heroin, could cause a person to become hopelessly addicted. But it’s not so easy for members of society to understand that the same mechanisms that are causing people to become drug addicts are also capable of causing people to become addicted to computers and Smartphones.

Electronic addiction is very real and millions of people are becoming electronic addicts even as I write these words. And if you believe that this is all taking place because of some unfortunate accident – think again! The telecommunication corporations are well aware of the fact that their products are habit forming. They know that when you first start off, your data package will be small. But just like a nicotine junkie increases the number of cigarette packs they smoke a day each year, the Smartphone user will also increase the amount of data they require over time.

Smartphone users repeatedly stimulate pathways inside the human brain that cause the release of Dopamine which rewards the user with a pleasurable experience. This scenario recurs over and over again and eventually more electronic stimulation is required to reach the same level of pleasure that was present initially.

In this situation the modality used to trigger the Dopamine release is electronic in nature and not a chemical product. Chemical modality or electronic modality, it doesn’t matter; the same addictive result is accomplished. Smartphone users can become so addicted that they cannot go more than ten minutes at a time without checking text messages, emails, Facebook, Instagram and other social media applications. When a Smartphone user picks up his or her device, it’s similar to a nicotine addict picking up a cigarette and taking a puff.

Are you a Smartphone addict? How many hours do you spend on one of these gadgets? Do you get stressed when you put your phone down? Are you afraid you’re missing something important online? Do you get stressed when your phone battery is getting low?

Of Course They Are Spying On Us

Dr. John L. Reizer

We’re currently witnessing a plethora of articles being published that are discussing the CIA’s spying practices on American citizens. WikiLeaks continues to release information into the pubic domain about the Deep State that was never intended to see the light of day. Americans, and some people outside of the United States, are learning for the first time how the CIA can spy on all of us through our cell phones and Smart Televisions.

Although the recent WikiLeaks news-dump concerning the CIA might be eye-opening news for many people, it’s really nothing new for our readers.  Spy agencies in the United States, and many other countries around the world, have been spying on their respective citizens for as long as the technology that allows them to do so has been around. And if you think all of this spying began just a few years ago – think again.  Computer based technology has been intentionally hardwired by communications corporations so that intelligence agencies can eavesdrop on users. If you think these companies aren’t working in concert with the powers that be, you need to do some more research about what’s taking place in the world.

Do you think social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and others were created solely for our entertainment? These products were placed into service so that private citizens would voluntarily spill their guts online about what they do in their daily lives. We have collectively grabbed the bait and made it extremely easy for intelligence agencies to collect and index our most personal information.

 

Why All the Spying? 

The governments of the world spy on private citizens because they want to know where the pulse beat of society is at any given time in regards to public perception of reality. It has always been vitally important to the powers that really control and manage the world to know how well the misinformed members of society are reacting to the propaganda they constantly produce and transmit.

As long as there continues to be an elite power-base that manages puppet governments worldwide, said governments, representing different countries, will operate spy campaigns that target private citizens.

Smartphones: It’s Only a Matter of Time

Did you ever wonder why smart phones or similar electronic devices are not susceptible to computer viruses? Why are laptops and PC’s always targets for computer viruses and your smartphone, which connects to the Internet, is off limits to these malicious programs?

The truth be told, any device that connects to the Internet could be fair game for computer viruses. The people and corporate entities that are profiting from viral programs have not yet focused their creative talents on smartphones and tablets.

It’s only a matter of time, however, before viruses will be written and antiviral products will be produced for the increasingly used smartphones and tablets. It will only be a matter of time before people happily pay for antiviral protective services that will be offered by the telecommunication companies that supply their services.

Remember this article. I am telling you, it is only a matter of time!
